@Cburg: as answered in the previous question, the X series has dropped the MHL support ( as most other oems did)
there are other ways to connect your device to a TV all but wirelessly.

If your TV doesn't support Miracast i would get a Google Chromecast and connect that to the TVs HDMI. You can then cast the phones screen from Settings -> Device connection -> Cast.
Many apps like Album also supports Chromecast and you'll have a cast icon that you can use in the apps as well.
Note that this requires that you have a WiFi-network at home.

How can i connect my Sony zx to my computer monitor?
With previous phones there was a cable available to do this.

The Sony Xperia XZ does not support MHL. Only solution is to use Chromecast for mirroring and/or beaming sound and video to big screens.

Well as it turned out, I ended up getting a XZ and a Surface Book. To ease my TV-Out woes, I also got Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, and it is great.
It solved my previous concerns about relying on a router (it doesn't, it works directly between my device and the TV) it plugs into a HDMI and a USB type A port (usually found in tvs, otherwise you can use a regular phone charger adapter to the wall).
I was able to watch 2 full movies with very little issues (about 2 or 3 small lags in over 2 hours).
I was able to show a PowerPoint presentation of 40 slides and about 1 hour without hiccups.
Not recommended for gaming, but everything else is a great experience.

Being able to cast over wireless is all well and good but I needed MHL support to connect to my Kenwood multimedia in car unit, sorta buggered that up now. Wishing I'd gone Samsung now as I'm not changing a thousand pound stereo.
