Default Xperia Z2 MHL Cable Help

I like to watch movies off my phone on my TV, and I know the sony xperia z2 has a 5 pin port on it.

im looking for a MHL 2.0 cable, so no charging required.

Most MHL 2.0 adapters are for the Samsung 11 pin, so finding a 2.0 cable that doesnt need to be charged to work has been a chore.

anybody have an idea?

I might be wrong but I think your TV needs to natively support MHL to be able use the cables. I found out the hard way!
Sony does sell the DLC-MC10 & DKC-MC20 MHL cables which I bought from my local Sony shop but as my TV doesn't support MHL, I had to buy one of the powered adapters.

I bought one of the Samsung 5 pin ones that were made for the GS2 and it worked fine (on my Z1) when I plug everything in.

If your TV does support MHL, then try finding one of DLC-MC10 cables.

I tried posting a link but as I don't have enough posts, XDA won't let me. I was able to find it on their website though.
