Default MHL adapter? micro usb to TV HDMI

Has anyone tried to link their "Z" from the micro usb to a TV HDMI port?

I know that sony are developing their MHL to HDMI adapter model IM750, but they don't seem to be available in the UK yet.

I've just bought a cellapod adapter on amazon for 12.95. Here's the link:-

SONY XPERIA TABLET Z USB TO HDMI MOBILE HIGH DEFINITION: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

When I receive the adapter, I'll give it a try, and update my post. Fingers crossed that it works.

Regards

I bought a cheapo MHL adapter from Amazon (around 6). It works well with both the Tablet Z and my HTC One, in fact with HD videos the picture/sound quality is superb. It's just annoying that it needs to be powered from a USB cable. I'll be interested to hear if yours needs external power too.

One nice thing is that when you plug it into the TV, the Tablet Z changes to a media centre mode. A quick stab of the 'Home' button takes you back to the normal UI if you prefer it.

Hi BubbaHotepUK,

My MHL does need external power to work. I am a little disappointed with the performance of the adapter. When watching movies over wi-fi, they are all "jerky". I haven't tried the adapter with movies on the sd card.
I am using the fastest Virgin cable for wi-fi, so it's not a problem with my internet that causing the movies to jump.

What video service are you using? I'll try mine with Netflix tonight. Generally that's a little jumpy for the first 30 seconds or so, but soon settles down.


I certainly don't get any problems playing 1080p movies direct from the SD card. That's using MX Player, by the way, not the in-built video player.
