Mirror tablet diplay on to tv

by zen_nudist / February 27, 2013 2:32 PM PST

long time follower, first time poster, that being said, i have a question about having my tablet extended onto LG smart TV, is it possible?

I don't mean file sharing or just playing music and video files ( i have Nero and it shares everything i need from PC to TV and Allshare for files on the tab) . But actually have what i am doing on the tablet come up on the TV so i don't have to look at the tab.

the TV i have is the 42LS5700 with all softwear up to date and the Tablet is the GT-P5100.

so any help is wanted and considered.

Thank you

All the TV needs to have is a hdmi input. If that's OK it depends on what outputs the tablet has. But since it is a Samsung tablet, this LG forum is the wrong place to ask. Better ask in our http://forums.cnet.com/tablet-forum/ if you can't find out about it yourself. Assuming it has HDMI also (I really don't know) you only need a hdmi-cable.

I guess i did the silliest thing an left out the important fact of i wanted a Wireless Option.

getting the wired way to work isn't a problem, its looking for a wireless option that i really need, as the tv is wall mounted and the cables and plugs on the side of the tv are a little it of a mission to get to.

Thank you for the tip on where to post in future, this being my first time usin gthese forums i thought an LG related idea might go into the LG forums, my bad

Not your fault. Wireless needs hardware and software on both sides, so it was good question then.

But as you didn't mention wireless, displaying a hdmi-signal via a hdmi-cable is so basic for a modern TV that it's not an issue for any TV forum (unless it doesn't work).

Best of luck with your endeavours.

Why do you think the quality would be better wireless than it is now? If the netbook doesn't have HDMI there is no need for it to deliver a better resolution than needed for its own screen using VGA.

Re: software to share screens over WiFi

That would have to be 2-sided software. Your netbook should send it, your TV should receive it.

So now turn to the user manual of the TV and find out if it has an app to receive a shared screen over WiFi.
