Ok then. iOS 7.1 Safari 412 out of 555. Not too shabby. Safari 6.1.2 (OSX) 397. Uhh OK. Chrome 33 (Mac) 505. Not full marks *sadface*; Firefox 28 (Mac) 448 poor.

It's worth noting that an iPad with a really drained battery will appear to do nothing when attached to the charger. It's not broken - it will react with the charging chime after a few minutes.

I leave Bluetooth on - it doesn't seem to take too much of hit on the battery whether it's idle or (for example) streaming to BT speakers.

My TV supports DNLA. Guess what? Because it's old (4 years) it doesn't support bit rates required for HD TV. So we're back at needing a new set.

Almost certainly this.

Make sure when you create the MP4, it's using the H.264 codec, otherwise it won't work with the built in video player on the iPhone.

Alternatively, download VLC for iOS.
