How to connect a Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) device to the TV using a MHL-to-HDMI adaptor

    A Mobile High Definition Link (MHL®) adapter can be used when the TV doesn't have a MHL compatible HDMI® port.


    Connecting MHL to the TV

    1. Connect the MHL device to an MHL-to-HDMI adapter, and connect the adapter to a USB power supply.
    2. Connect the adapter to a TV using a HDMI cable. The MHL icon appears on the status bar of the MHL device after a connection is established.
    3. Set the TV to the HDMI input. The TV launcher application starts automatically. Follow the instructions on the screen of the MHL device to view media files on the TV.

    Note: MHL-to-HDMI adapters are not guaranteed to work with all Android TV™ or Google TV™ devices. Manuals are posted on your model support page.
