Did yours just appear on the TV when you dock the phone? Or is there some setup required ?
Sorry for the delayed response. External power is required to use the HDMI and USB ports on the dock, so make sure the dock is plugged in first. Other than that, all I have to do is power the dock and plug in the HDMI cable, and my phone display is mirrored on the TV. The following works for me: 1. Power the dock. 2. Dock the phone. 3. Plug in HDMI cable. 4. ??? 5. Profit!
When I bought this dock, it was only advertised to work with the S3, S4, and Note 2. Hopefully the Note 3 uses the same 11 pin USB port that the S3, S4, and Note 2 use, but if it doesn't that would explain why the dock doesn't work.
Also, if your HDMI cable requires source power (mine does) make sure to plug in the sourcing end into the TV. I can't think of anything past that.
