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.

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
