Default How to play games in TV?

Hi,

I have mhl cable
I have HDMI cable.
I have LG LED HDTV

I connected the mhl cable to my s4 and connected HDMI cable to the mhl port. I switched on TV and selected the HDMI as the input but nothing is coming up on my TV screen.

In my knowledge, using mhl cable or adaptor I should be able to share my screen on my TV.

Any idea why it's not working as intended. Also is there is any way to play games on to my TV from my phone?

Your help is much appreciated.:thumbup:

Which MHL cable/adapter are you using? There are a lot of knockoffs and cheap-O brands.

You need the new mhl 2.0 adapter. The s3 started with the new adapter and the one for the s2 won't work anymore

DONATE TO ME
Phone Try The Samsung Brand

Samsung Makes a MHL to HDMI OTG style converter, I got one from amazon and it works for me, They tend to be a little bit more money compared to other though
