Question

Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy S5 to HDMI Conversion

I frequently need to load movies on my tablet/phone for when I travel. Occasionally, I'd like to be able to play this on my home HDTV from either one of the units. Please recommend a good USB to HDMI converter I could use that would allow me to plug either one of my devices into it (with the factory supplied MicroUSB or 30 Pin to USB cable) and allow me to play my movies directly to an HDTV in both digital picture and sound.

Thanks,
Jim

Sorry, wrong conversion

My mistake, I should have been more detailed. I need a converter that is female USB to male HDMI. This way I can plug both my phone or my tablet into the female USB port using the factory USB charging adapter then plug into my TV.

One question: Do you know if the adaption I'm proposing will bring both HD video and audio across them?

Thanks,
Jim

I never found such a thing for MHL devices.

Maybe you wish there was a different cable that didn't need the MHL setup noted or maker supplied.

Check the samsung.com web pages for both models to be sure you get the right cable setup for both devices. Do not futz with this. I've seen folk burn devices by using unsupported cables.
