Cant watch whats on my samsung phone on my samsung tv

by Davyb69 / January 18, 2013 2:02 AM PST

I have a samsung Galaxy s2 phone and a samsung smart tv d8000 series.

i can stream from pc and phone to the tv no problem using allshare.

However I want to watch football on my tv using skysportstv android app on my phone. I have tried using allshare, usb port and hdmi port but I dont get anything.

I thought that if I connected the phone to the tv via HDMI it would simply display what was being seen on the phone screen.

Aby help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Sorry,

Yes when the media player, or PS3 is plugged in and switched on it works fine...

When they are switched off they dont show on the AV list..

Sorry but I asked

I asked if your phone's HDMI worked. It's nice to know other devices work but if the phone gives no display at all under any condition then you are back at the support counter where you got your phone for them to show you it working or get the phone fixed.
