Bargain especially if you can play xbmc through it

nice

Cool, perfect for my Note 2! I assume the female end is full-size HDMI?

yep.
I have a genuine samsung mhl cable, which does not work on all tv's, not sure why?. just in case anyone buys one and think its faulty.

Bought a generic MHL adapter and while back, but wouldn't work with my Samsung Galaxy S3. Think you need to buy an official one for that, or some other kind like it.

Is it compaitable with iphone5?

Not compatible with iphone 5 since the adapter has a micro usb cable.

One and only review from person whow bought it:

neoooowwmmm | 03/01/2013 | See all neoooowwmmm's reviews (1)Doesn't work … neoooowwmmm | 03/01/2013 | See all neoooowwmmm's reviews (1)Doesn't work with my Galaxy S2, the "Premier AV-3MHD Premium 24K Gold Plated 3M HDMI To HDMI Cable" from Play.com and a Samsung D5520 SmartTV.Nothing happens, no signal detected on any HDMI ports of the TV when plugged in. (Despite saying "Compatible With Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100" in the technical details for this product.)

The only review it has is that it doesn't work. Though I'll give it a shot and will return it if it doesn't work.

Got to be worth a punt

Got one of these from Amazon last year for the same time, works a charm from the S2, although you have to plug the charger into the side of the adapter to power it.

Great for streaming tv catch up apps to a tv etc!

i really want to have this but are you sure it won't work?

i've heard you gotta link an external power source to the adapter as well, have you tried it?

i've seen instructions from some ebay equivalent products:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MHL-Micro-USB-to-HDMI-HDTV-Adapter-for-Samsung-Galaxy-S3-SIII-S3-LTE-i9300-i535-/350732711808?pt=UK_MobilePhones_MobilePhoneAccesories_MobilePhoneDataCables_JN&hash=item51a94c7780

Follow the steps below to connect:
1. Connect one end of HDMI cable into the MHL adapter.
2. Connect the other end to the HDMI port on your TV. (HDMI cable not included)
3. Connect your ORIGINAL travel charger to the MHL adapter.
4. Connect your ORIGINAL travel charger to an approved power source.
5. Connect the MHL adapter connector into the Power/Accessory interface port on your device.
This is the same port you use to connect your travel charger. The Video and Audio output will not work correctly if you connect through the desktop dock. The TV screen will display what is on your device home screen.

I thought the working principle is similar.

work on the nexus 4?

IVE GOT THIS
Ive just had this delivered yesterday but I paid over £6 from Amazon. Works a treat. I have an S2.

When I read the reviews I noticed that some had a problem with loose connections. The unit works fine as long as you dont dangle it from your phone. You will need a long hdmi lead. The connections are nice and snug. My one says CAMAC on the front.

Plenty of reviews to look at. The price has gone up now.
You need your own hdmi cable with normal sized ends and you plug your phone charger in the side of it.

will it work 4 desire hd?

kt6345

work on the nexus 4?



No, N4 uses a different type of adapter for hdmi out called Slimport

Hi good deal.
doesnt work with s3 or note 2.

This will not work on newer generation phones like Note II or S3.

They changed the pin configuration between S2 and S3.

I have a Note II and had to buy a new cable after using one like this with my original note for years.

Edited by: "superivanho" 8th Mar 2013

convert your old mhl from your S2 to S3 pin out using this dx.com/p/m…939

If you already have a device such as a Samsung Galaxy S II or Nexus that has MHL/video out through the microUSB port then be aware, if you own the accessory that allows you to connect it to a HD display, IT WILL NOT WORK with the Galaxy S III.

The Galaxy S3 has a different pin connection so you need a different adapter

Will this work with a HTC sensation or Huaawei ascend G300 does anybody know? Thanks in advance for any help!

Does it only output videos or also games etc.?

Pretty much everything - apart from Sky Go, as they disabled mirroring in the app.

Will it play Sky Sports? I have the free app on my phone, but the screen is too small to watch properly!

Will this work with Samsung Galaxy TAB2 ?
Thanks in advance

Is this compatible with the Nexus 7?
