Customer Question
I want to watch video...
I want to watch video that is on my phone on my TV. I do not have internet in my area and have no in home wired or wireless network but my LTE service is great. I am wondering if there is a media docking station or some cable arrangement that will work for mirroring my audio and video from my phone to me TV? I did purchase a device that ran from the phones USB port to my TV HDMI port but the picture froze almost immediately.

Also, what type of phone do you have?

slimport compatible micro usb to hdmi adapter that listed the LG4 as something it would work with.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
LG4
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

Does the cable indicate it is MHL certified?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. I believe the MHL is not the same as the slimport that the LG phones have. None of the MHL cable adapters I looked act said they supported the LG4. I thought the difference was that the slimport carries the audio and video to the HDMI connector and the MHL doesn't
TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

Just to confirm, you have an LG G4 phone correct?

TV Technician: Dan, Broadcast Engineer replied 2 years ago

What you will need is the Slimport Nano Console. This device is made to do just exactly what you are trying to do and is compatible with your phone.
