A Generic MHL HDMI adapter will work.

I still haven't found any info regarding if the HTC One m8 uses mhl 2.0 or 1.0
Any news regarding this matter?

I've been using a general MHL adapter that came with the 5 to11 pin Galaxy add-on (which I don't use of course for my HTC). This has worked flawlessly for me no problem for years now. Make sure you have a good power source, the only problems I have had is my phone will say "slow charging", and the Media Device output will not work. Mine is pretty old, over a year & a half I've been using it, so I'm looking for a new one. They have one with a remote which is what led me to the review on here (a diff thread). However, they have the same one I have on Amazon or Walmart for a few bucks, you shouldn't have a problem. I'll add the links below...

Also, I'm on this thread beaise I plan to unlock & root my phone and am concerned that once I do that an adapter will no longer work Any suggestions or experience with this would be appreciated? Thx

M8 mhl cable
I have the m8. I bought a Skiva mhl cable from Amazon. I believe it's hd-x2 cable. Works flawlessly only problem ive encountered is it will not play in 5.1 surround. It only transmits a 2.0 audio feed. Which I don't understand. If I use like all cast to cast the stream to my Xbox it transmits in 5.1. So if anyone knows how to get the cable to do 5.1 let me know.
