Default MHL to RCA?

Howdy,

I have a dvd player in my VW camper, is there a cable anyone could recommend to go from MHL to RCA? Will it work on a custom ROM? There's a lot of conflicting info out there. Thanks!

you can do a search on amazon for a mhl 2 rca and come up with a few results for that cable. and as far as custom roms go. i would imagine it would work on a touchwiz based rom(jedimasterx2 would be a good example here) as far as the likes of non touchwiz based roms(ie. aokp) it wouldn't work as allshare is not included. hopefully i answered your question. can't tell ya much more then that. maybe someone else can chime in on the cable who has maybe purchased one. i unfortunately only have the mhl2hdmi not the rca varient so.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. It's a dvd player/in dash receiver, so it has rca aux inputs. I looked into those cables and a lot of reviews say they don't work and a few actually say it won't work with custom roms, which to me sounds kinda strange.

it wont work with a simple cable.

MHL only outputs digital signal so no analog RCA, you need something to convert it with a scan converter from HDMI to RCA, which require external power.

Also it wont work on customs roms because MHL uses proprietary drivers and only works on stock roms.

That's what I feared. Thanks for the confirmation.

I wish such a cable or some workaround existed, I would've been able to hook up my Note 2 to my car's Pioneer touchscreen system

I got an mhl to HDMI adapter and then a HDMI to rca converter from Monoprice. Works perfect
