I decided to get it because it has USB host and HDMI all in one adapter. Sadly it needs power to output HDMI, but my TV has 3 powered USB ports anyway so it should be no issue.

Gonna update here once i get the package
Works just as expected. Happy with my purchase.

-USB OTG doesnt require external power works well, speed is high enough to watch movies from USB sticks.
-HDMI needs external power, and works out of the box. Connect and good to go.

But Android really needs some HDMI out options... My TV defaults to 1080p ->24hz<- which is just terribly choppy... I'd prefer 720p 60hz or something if 1080p is too much (shouldnt be since the tablet runs at even higher res/60hz all the time).
Is there a way to change HDMI output signal on the tablet? I didn't find anything.

Another weird thing, the same adapter is not working for my Galaxy S3. No idea why.

Hi all, I'm looking for a similar solution but I'm not very clear on the distinction between the 5 and 11 pin models etc, so finding it hard to make a best guess on what will work for the 10.1 2014.

I tried this because ideally I wanted to go from micro usb to VGA for flexibility:

but it didn't work.
Giving up on the VGA element and sticking with HDMI, would this have a better chance of success? :

Any thoughts appreciated

I bought this from Amazon and has the same configuration as yours but does not seems to work. It does not charge the note. The usb stick and ext hdd are not detected even with attached power.I'm using Total Commander for reading NTFS.I'm not a tech but I have a gut feeling that the S3 adapter is not suited for our note. You can use it for HDMI but I tried it on my charger and it does not charge the device.

Sorry I'm referring to this Callstel 5in1 MHL-Adapter HDMI.
