Re: Can't connect to tv

@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.

Re: No MHL?

Can't understand why Sony have done this. There are still tvs and projectors etc that are not able to be connected to via wireless. Is there any way that I can connect to an older TV that doesn't have wireless technology

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.

Re: Xperia xz mhl

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.

Re: Xperia xz mhl

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.

Re: No MHL?

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. Crying Face
