Why would I use anything else?
I just got a Galaxy S9 and want to connect it to my 55" Samsung TV (UN55J6201). However to my horror my TV isn't apparently MHL compatible. Come to find out from this article that's fine. https://www.tomsguide.com/us/tv-connector-adapter-guide,news-18345.html
Anyways the article is a little confusing and vague on the part of if you don't have a MHL ready tv. Basically do I need 2 seat of cables? An MHL-HDMI adapter, and a USB-c to HDMI?
