Default Cannot stream or use internet when HDMI is connected from phone to TV

Hello everyone.

I have googled the bejesus out of this as asking a question myself on a forum is usually a last resort but cannot find any answers.

I own a samsung galaxy s2 and I recently purchased one of those hdmi things that let you connect it to the TV. All works fine except the internet shuts off when the HDMI is connected.. This means I can only watch things that are already on my phone and cannot stream netflix which is the main reason I got it in the first place

I have tried rooting the phone to see if that would fix it but it didn't..


-I wonder if the hdmi connector is faulty and if I need to pay for a new one

When hdmi is connected I see what looks like a STOP sign on the top taskbar. kind of like a no smoking sign without the cigarette (/)
