Hey XDA! I recently bought a 10.1" tablet (details below), and it works really well, except the camera. But my issue is not that. It uses a mini-hdmi connector and I bought an adapter for it, so I can use it to mirror my tablet to my TV through my HDMI cable. Everything works well, it mirrors YouTube and everything perfectly, except for one app: the Netflix app. While it's connected to my TV and I open Netflix I can browse for movies but when I play them my TV shows nothing but a black screen, audio, and subtitles, unlike my tablet which displays the video. I managed to get video for a split-second when changing aspect ratio, but that only happened once. I tried searching for my exact issue, but got nothing on tablet-to-tv issues. I'd appreciate some help! Here are the specs for my tablet:

Hi!

I can't find a thread with your specific issue. Plenty of Netflix aspect ratio not right, but none with no picture.

Since you didn't mention a manufacturer name, I'm going to assume its not one of the "big" name brands and likely has no section for it here....so you'll need to ask about your issue here....

If it is a manufacturer that has a section here, posting in its section would be best.
