Will any Mini HDMI to HDMI cable work for the Nexus 10? What I mean is, are there different ones, the part you plug into the Nexus, I know there are like tons of different usb connections.

I want to play content on a TV. I found a nice cheap $7.99 cable from Walmart, but don't know if it will do what I want?

It is microHDMI. I bought this one from Monoprice for $7.50 and it outputs both audio and video just fine.

So Mini would be a different one then?

Alright, are there USB to HDMI cables available? Does that do everything, any benefits?

You need a micro hdmi cable for your nexus 10... There are micro Usb to hdmi cables but they are for phones/tabs that use MHL... The nexus 10 has a dedicated hdmi port

Ordered one of these. I tried another cable from another supplier and it was very flakey! Monoprice rocks!

Hey guys.

So I bought one of these, only a 3 foot one, and it's absolutely wonderful.

Two questions though....

How long of a cable can I have before there becomes a streaming issue?

Also, how can I blank the tablet's screen while having it still continue to stream video content?

My device is rooted and I have Xposed framework installed.

Cheers.

I haven't tested it but it seems to be what you are looking for.

Is there perhaps another method?

The reviews for that application are somewhat intimidating.

WTF! This g-d d@mn thing ruined my tablet. I installed it, then it went to screen off mode, which disabled my HDMI out too. So I couldn't see anything, so I turned it off and back on, and when it came back ... it was all reset to factory! everything is gone! Piece of crap
