Hi, I'm thinking of purchasing a Tab S 10.5 and also looking for an MHL to VGA adapter that works for the tab. Does anyone know of any that work?

The approach that I took was to get the Samsung MHL to HDMI adapter and then plug an HDMI to VGA adapter into that. The Belkin HDMI to VGA adapter (AV10145BT) works well.

I had first tried a Startech HD2VGAMICRO adapter but it would not work. I went to BestBuy and they let me try the Belkin adapter with my tablet and one of their monitors. It worked so I bought it.

Hi - so you have this working? did you have to do anything special to get this working? like press buttons/settings on the Tab?
I brought the same adaptors as above and all I get is a blank screen! I then disconnected the HDMI-VGA part and tried using the MHL-HDMI into my PS screen and it still was blank

Just plugged it in and it worked. I tried it on several projectors and monitors. It worked on an old 1024x768 projector and various 1080p monitors and projectors.

There are several models of Samsung MHL to HDMI adapters. I have model # ET-H10FAUWESTA. That might make a difference.

@fletch33 thanks for the link - with that cable do you have to have it plug it into the USB charger as well to get it working? or does it work without...
