Samsung Tab A 10.1 2016 (TM585) TV out

Found 21st May 2017
I've recently purchased this tablet and am looking for an adapter to show the tablet screen on my TV screen. My TV doesn't have WiFi so I can cast the screen and every page I Google tells me something different. It is Mhl, it isn't, it needs 11 pins. Can this tablet actually do this and if so any recommendations on a lead? (I've tried my current Mhl lead that I had​ for my Sony and that hasn't worked? I don't really want to pay official Samsung prices as I'm sure if it's possible there are plenty of cheaper ones. thank you

Buy a chromecast?

Google Chromecast is the way to go.

That would be good but I don't always have WiFi so need a lead

not possible

My Samsung S6 phone and S2 tablet can't output video via microSD to HDMI so I doubt yours can. So what you want to do isn't possible.

OK thank you. least I know not to continue trying to find a solution. It's odd cause samasung site says buy a mhl but it doesn't have mhl.

Miracast dongle might solve your issue if you only want screen mirroring. If your issue with WiFi for Chromecast is not resolvable by improving your existing WiFi network, perhaps buying a cheap WiFi router (without modem) and creating a network just for the Chromecast and tablet to speak to eachother on might work?

​Does the miracast dongle need WiFi? I don't have WiFi at my partner's house, so it's there I have the issue. Thanks

Miracast doesn't need an existing wifi network, it creates a direct connection between devices.

ditto chromecast
