@ArisMauMM: It isn't possible to connect the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 to a TV via HDMI, although if you have a compatible Smart TV then you can mirror the screen wirelessly using Smart View. To access this feature, swipe from the top of the screen to the bottom using 2 fingers and tap 'Smart View' in the Quick Settings menu. Hope this helps.

Not everyone has a Samsung TV. Useless solution. Need a universal solution to plug via a universal standard like HDMI. Very anti consumer and anti competitive.  Shame on you Samsung. Every meeting room i go to has an hdmi to USB C. And most meeting rooms do not have samsung TVs. 

 

Most frustrating is that I can't even connect to an external monitor so my kids can use the tablet for school work. Waste of money. This tablet is useless.

When I connect my Galaxy S8 to the tv via HDMI, the picture goes through perfectly,  but the sound on my phone gets muted.  Is it possible to get picture AND sound?

Hey @WillM1 

 

do you have any other device to try to connect it to your TV using this adapter? That will help us determine if the adapter is working correctly.

K so i am unclear from the posts above.

 

i have a galaxy tab A purchased last month. Galaxy Tab A SM-T510NZKAXAC (10.1, 2019)

 

Is it compatible with MHL? Is the problem people are having that they cant find a cable to go from USB-C to hdmi? or that the tablet simply does not support MHL. My projector has an MHL port but the device does have to support it. I don't really know anything about MHL, and its either new, or not very popular because there is not a super lot of information about it.

Sorry yes your Tab A is a brick when you walked out of the store with it. The device is designed and made to be unto itself, NOT with any other device on the market on this planet. Sorry that no one informed you of the uselessness of this product. Take it back if you can.
