A70 to TV ?

Hi all

 

My first post

 

Had my A70 a couple of months now, great phone

 

I want to connect my A70 to my TV but smart view doesn't work 

I then bought a USB-C to HDMI lead and that does not work either, comes up on my phone as something is connected and it charges , when I click on switch control to phone it will not allow me to do so.

I still have nothing up on my TV

 

I have also tried my 2019 tablet A , same thing

 

I have a Samsung TV

 

Any ideas ?

I am also facing exactly the same problem.
Using the wireless SMARTVIEW on the phone results in regular irritating interruptions.
I just bought a type-C USB-HDMI cable. It does not work.
Looking for help. My phone is SAMSUNG GALAXY A70 (2019).

SmartView on my A70 works fairly well with my LG 7000 series TV but freezes on the LG 6xx series. SmartView on the A70 is available by default from the dropdown quick settings (you might have to swipe down twice, then swipe left to see it).

I use Smartview often, casting whatsapp video calls the TV. Unfortunately whatsapp doesnt work in landscape mode via smartswitch. I also have had issues trying to cast video files stored on the device where it would only playback on the phone and not the TV, but that seems to be more a problem with the player app. E.g. I dont think netflix pre-downloaded files can be cast to a secondary screen (not by smartview or chromecast).

It is for this reason that I would have like a wired solution though. Too bad the A70 is without MHL / HDMI. I believe this is a hardware requirement, so no amount of software can enable it

Interestingly, someone on the XDA forums said that their USB-C to HDMI cable worked with the A30 (but not the A70).

Hi TessM, I have a similar issue and was wondering if you or anyone else could help.

 

I have an A70, and a non smart Panasonic tv which has 2 hdmi ports but no USB port! I have a hdmi splitter cable, by that I mean its hdmi on one end and then a choice of usb or usbc on the other end. When i plug both ends in appropriately nothing happens, no connection prompt, no phone screen display on my tv either. I've looked through my tv settings and theres nothing that seems relevant sonim wondering if theres a setting or app on my phone that I can use to cast my screen onto my tv.

Sorry mate, read the posts. A70 does not support display output via usb c.

If you're not supposed to be able to output video via cable to a TV on the Samsung A70, how come Samsung sells a cable that promises to do exactly that? Is it a workaround?
