Something like this should work:

I bought one that looks exactly like this, I don't have the exact link but this is the same thing. You have to plug in the USB to a wall charger or PC USB port, and you need to be on a stock rom because slimport doesn't work with any of the CM or AOSP based roms I tried.

Using this cable, the G2 actually outputs a pretty good video feed at 1080P. The colors look a bit washed out on my PC monitor but the speed is good and games can run at around 40+ FPS (as opposed to 60 FPS when not using slimport and just running on the phone). I also use the Moga Pro controller, it's Bluetooth and has very little input lag, I don't have a PS3 controller.

I just wish CM would fix slimport, it is a huge feature for me.

I just bought recently G2, came from S3, very good phone Im happy with it and its quiet interesting to connect it to TV and gamepad... I think I will try buy one of those EBAY slimports to test it, but Im thinking about cheap chinese ps3 controller, anyone tried it on this phone for gaming? And is it worth to play games like this? Because alot of games uses alot of touches

Hmm, I have a question, what about to connect Xbox controller via USB to phone ? The external power is demanding ?

Info 2
So, basically :

* MHL cable => to connect USB port of LG G2 to HDMI of the TV ( only for CM & AOSP based rom )

* SLIMPORT cable => to connect USB port of LG G2 to HDMI of the TV ( only for STOCK based rom )


It's correct ?

Strange, on ebay I can see always cable with "MHL" and "SLIMPORT", both...

Like this :

G2
I tried using a star tech slimport adapter to be able to view my g2 on my TV but it doesn't work. The TV is a LG from 2005. Is the TV too old?

Nope. G2 uses Slimport, not MHL. It's a hardware difference (basically, DisplayPort vs HDMI), even if the adapter looks similar.

LG G2
