I read I need a slimport adapter to get video out of my Nexus 4. I got an MHL adapter with a little slimport converter. My Nexus 4 doesn't seem to take the slimport connector (which has an extra little tab on it), but the MHL fits. I can't seem to get video out working though. Does it only work at certain times or do I have to activate it somehow? Has anyone gotten video out to work? Why does every site say I need a slimport adapter and then the slimport adapter doesn't fit?

Do you have a link to this "slimport converter"?
I cant imagine a thing not costing less then just buying an actual slimport/mydp adapter.

It's the equivilent of a ethernet to sata adapter, there would need to be active parts to convert the stream from one to the other, they're completely unrelated.

There's no way it's just a passive thing, slimport/my and mhl use microusb as the connector, but that's about the only thing they have in common.
