Default How to plug your Samsung S3 into a tv?

I just got a new Samsung S3 and was wondering how you can plug it into your TV? I know that apple phones have some type of adapter for it but does the S3 have the same thing? One of my friend told me to get a MHL cable but I donít really know which one to get since thereís so many of them on ebay.
Also would this work for projectors too cause I own a couple of pico projectors from AAXA and would like to use them to do presentations on them. Please help. Thanks!

For to plug your S3 into your HDMI TV you'd need a Samsung MHL adapter for the S3.
Standard MHL adapters that work with the S2 (and all other phones which have MHL ability) won't work with the S3.

If you have an xbox or PS3 all you need to do is press the share button when they are on and you are looking at a video or image on your phone.

The share button appears at the top left of the screen i think. Only when they are both connected to the same network of course.

It looks like a tv with some arrows if i remember correctly.

Im disgusted with samsung.
Its bad enough that they made the s3 need its own non-universal adaptor but my genuine samsung one only survived about a month!

Your S3 has WiFi Miracast ability, so you might have a look at this Netgear adapter for wireless mirroring via WiFi to your TV ...

I'd be interested to get this working...when a video is running on the S3 I press menu and get 'share via' option, none of which look like a TV with arrows?? Wi-Fi direct has arrows?

Help!?
