Default Samsung MHL to HDMI Adapter not working??

Hello guys, I registered in this forum hoping to find a solution for the problem I have.

I bought an original Samsung HDTV Adapter (Micro USB type) to use it to connect my new Galaxy S3 to my LCD Samsung TV via HDMI cable, BUT IT DOESN’T WORK !!

I checked the same adapter with a Galaxy Nexus and it worked just fine, but I had no luck to get it work with Galaxy S3. Any reason for that?

Please help. Thank you!

Have you set the TV-Out options on the phone?

The settings might be in the AllShare application or something like that, most phone's with TV-Out don't have it enabled by default as you have to choose PAL/NTSC/etc. I'm just guessing based on my SGS1 though, I don't have my SGS3 yet.

Can confirm it's not working. Couldn't find any mention of mhl in the manual either.

Damn, this is a bit of a major for me! I hope this isn't a case of Samsung not including MHL to sell more of their AllShare Cast dongles...

This is a major letdown. I've also bought a MHL adapter to use with my (delayed pebble blue -.- ) SIII, didn't expect this to happen.

Anyone else has tried connecting the phone through hdmi?

That’s really frustrating!! I guess I figured it out and it doesn’t look nice from Samsung.

I found this accessory online which is yet to be released and compatible with the S3:

Part No: EPL-3FHUBEGSTD (sorry I cant post links as im a new user and the system wont allow me, u will be able to find that part in MobileFun site )

The same older model won’t work !! it’s the same device though with an older version. Here is the old model part no. which is available in market now:

Part No: EIA1UHUNBECSTD (u can search it in the same site “MobileFun”)

So if you have your old HDTV Adapter, I guess you can’t use it with the S3. That’s BAD Samsung, really BAD

Anyway, if any 1 can figure a way to make the older model work with the S3 please post it here, as im not eager to buy a second HDTV Adapter
