My TV is a Non-Smart TV. It is not equipped with built-in wifi or a LAN Connector. I was asking, is my TV wifi Ready, or if I connect wifi HDMI Dongle with it will my Samsung Galaxy Note II work with it?

That's sort of my question.

Let's say you do this. I don't see what feature would be useful. I looked at the TV and see no reason to get a WiFi dongle at all.

-> Some folk are diving into this without defining "work with it" or looking at what these things do.

I want to connect my Samsung Galaxy Note to the TV, so that I get my Phone's display on the TV.

Thanks

How I do that is over HDMI.

Have you found this feature on a WiFi smart TV?

It appears you are repeating what others have done. That is, they buy the WiFi dongle then can't find the feature. Please look for the feature before you pick up the thing or cable.

I thought we cleared that up. In short NO.

" This is the official Samsung branded accessory and connects to your television by way of HDMI. The user can then wirelessly stream (over Wi-Fi) the content from their phone and view it on their HDTV"

Notice it does not tell you that you can see the screen of your phone. I bet you are WISHING for a screen view feature but I don't see that feature.

Doubt that will help.

The feature you are looking for with the screen from the Android to the TV is not one I see here on other Smart TVs over WiFi.

A smart BluRay player would give you more for you buck and then you could look for a DLNA server for Android to do what that dongle does.

Why not the usual cable? Cheap, works.

Hi HarrisMahmud,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know: if you want Samsung support, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for the UAE. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So while I can't help you directly, if you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung UAE portal for support on that product: http://www.samsung.com/ae/support/model/UA46EH5000RXZN

Hope this helps you!

Regards,
HD Tech
