Poke!

 

Still 0 response from Sony, great way for them to loose valuable customers. Not showing any interest in our issues....

 

As much as I love my XZ2 compact and the amazing camera/audio quality. I will not buy another Sony phone after this. Horribly dissapointed by the design choices and radio silence from Sony about the lacking HDMI support.

Re: USB-C HDMI support - Why has this been disabled?

I seriously cant beleive this thread has been going so long without an answer from Sony.  I've owned Xperia devices through the entire family line starting with the Z1.  I currently have an XZ2 and would seriously hardpressed at this point to buy another Xperia device when it comes time to upgrade after not even an acknowledgement or response from Sony on this issue.  If it's a licensing issue or some other problem where this feature will never be developed, I'd like to at least know.  If it's technically possible and something that may be considered as a development request, I'd also like to know.  This is completley unacceptable on Sony's behalf to not even respond to a thread in their own forum for over 6 months now...  Looks like there's a decent number of other people who share my sentiments.

Re: USB-C HDMI support - Why has this been disabled?

Hello everyone and I'm very sorry for the late reply in regarding to your questions about USB Type-C and MHL/HDMI support.

No Xperia devices manufactured 2018 or earlier support HDMI/MHL output through the USB Type-C port.

I'm afraid that I don't have any information as to why this is not available in our devices with a USB Type-C port.

Re: USB-C HDMI support - Why has this been disabled?

Hi Jonas, I can understand you reply about Sony supporting or not the feature... But I can assure you XZ1 Compact did work for screen mirroring through USB-C I used to do it with a Dell docking station USB-C, to Hdmi as also with a USB-C to Hdmi converter... I bought a new phone from Sony as my last one was picked out of my pocket in the subway. Sony disabling this kind of features is not necessarily a step forward in customer loyalty..  For sure I will test my next phone for all needs before buying...

Re: USB-C HDMI support - Why has this been disabled?

Yup.  Pretty disappointing.  Has Sony released a workaround to get this accomplished?

Hi @Kevin1967, since the feature is not supported, I'm not quite sure if there any workaround to get this to work.

You can still cast the content using, for example, a Chromecast or mirror the screen using the screen mirroring feature.
