Default MHL adaptor with HDMI to RCA

Hi,
I am looking to buy a MHL adaptor for my GS3. But I want to display this on a TV with only RCA. If I brought a HDMI to RCA then plugged that into the MHL adaptor would I be able to show my phone screen on the TV?
Thanks in advance

i did this with vga. vga and rca are both analogue signals so you will need . in addition to an adaptor , a converter box to convert the signal from digtal to analogue. also sound will not travel at least not with vga. make sure to get adaptors and converters that have power supplies so your phone can charge while using external monitor. also dont go for the cheapest components they usually dont work or stop working after a very short time. good luck

his television only has rca.(analog} input .

At some point between phone mhl out and tv rca in.

The signal needs to be converted from digital to analog

there may be an all in one adaptor/converter somewhere. But the standard samsung mhl to hdmi adaptor will not work by itself as it does not convert but merely transfers the digital signal that the analog television can not display..

it really is not that expensive or difficult to do. I even use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard from my old motorola atrix.
Combined with the vga monitor. It is very much worth it. Its like having an additional desktop computer.
