I have a Galaxy Tab 3 8.0", and I’d quite like to mirror it onto my TV (so I can use the SkyGo Tablet app, if it matters.).
I went and bought one of these yesterday, as my tablet is specifically listed as compatible, and since my TV is older, I had read that I needed to get one with a power socket as the TV isn’t going to supply power to the tablet through the cable.
So, I plug it in… and nothing. I’ve read that what should happen is that it should recognise that it’s been plugged in, and ask if I want to Mirror it to the tv. This doesn’t happen, and when I go to the settings and “scan” for a device to mirror to, it comes up with no devices.
I’m thinking I might have a duff adaptor, because when I plug everything in, I would expect the device to start to charge itself through the adaptor, but it doesn’t. But I thought I would ask here to see if anyone else had this trouble.
Anyone got any ideas?
The TV, btw, is a Toshiba Regza, about 5 years old.
