Hi I bought A Samsung Galaxy "Tab A" 10.5 today and I can't seem to find any information about how to connect it to an HDMI input on either my TV or into my Screen Capture Box.

The thing is I bought it specifically for my Kid to record his games to the Capture Box.

 

Also having issues figuring out how to format my Micro SD card to "Internal Storage".

 

If anyone ahs any advice or knows how to fix these problems it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Justin I was just looking for same thing. I bought mhl to hdmi cable but it does not fit my tablet. Apparently there us no cable that will fit Tab A. Everything seems to point to using chromecast. Not done that before but will give it a go.

To use your sd card you have to go to storage in your settings and click on sd card you can then create a file to send things to the card. Hope this helps Sue

@Justinsane0069: Sadly the Galaxy Tab A is not listed as being compatible with MHL HDMI adapters, therefore you won't be able to connect the tablet to your TV in this manner.

SD cards can't be formatted as internal storage, however you can move any personal media to your SD card should you wish to free up some space. Apps > My Files > Images (as an example) > More > Edit > Select images > More > Move > SD card

You can also set your camera up to store images to the SD card by default.

Camera app > Tap the cog symbol > Storage Location > Memory Card

@Cassidy007 Please correct your post! The A 10.5 2018 does NOT support USB-C / HDMI cables (USB type C alt mode)!

 

BUT HDMI output is possible via a DisplayLink adapter like the 'wavlink USB 3.0 HDMI adapter'.

 I recently purchased the tab a 2019 10.1. I bought the USBC to HDMI adapter that is supposed to allow you to connect your tablet to your TV via HDMI. Unfortunately it's not working. I thought it was the adapter until I tried someone else's device with that same adapter and the same cable, and it worked just fine. I'm currently chatting with Samsung again trying to figure out what the problem is. Supposedly it's as simple as plug-and-play, but it's not working.

Which model of the tab a do you have question about the 2016 or the 2019? Samsung is telling me that the 2019 model does not support HDMI output unless you can use Smart View with another Samsung device like a Samsung TV.
