    I have been trying to get my Note screen duplicated on to my LG wifi TV, either by screen mirroring or any other way, basically I want to watch BT sports on my TV, streamed from my Note, otherwise BT want to sell me their box for a monthly fee and money upfront.
    Has anyone managed to do this?

    Have you tried an MHL adapter to HDMI?

    So this will just mirror my screen to my TV?

    Yes it works well and mirrors your screen exactly.

    You'll need a HDMI cable with USB on the end as well to use that evohicks.

    USB, So I need to power it also?
    Powering my phone isn't going to be a deal breaker as its just for watching the Moto GP and the odd soccer game, so its never going to be used for longer than a couple of hours. I did a search and it seems this one is the official one with part number ET-H10FAUWEGWW

    It doesn't have to be this one but I don't want to damage the phone in any way by getting the wrong one, have any Note 3 users used the MHL cable on their phones yet?

    I may have misled you evohicks. After further research I have found that the Note 3 comes with MHL 2.0 so you can use a standard HDMI cable (You won't need USB end for power) to connect the MHL adapter to the television. What was throwing me off were the images of the little device. That looked like a USB plug at the end to me. But after going to the offical Samsung Accessory site I saw for sure that a standard HDMI cable is all that is required to connect this adapter to your TV. MHL 2.0 HDTV Smart Adapter.

    Yeah I found out that the MHL adapter I need is also listed for the Galaxy S4, thanks for your help though, always good to have input.
