    Has anyone got an MHL Adaptor to work on the Galaxy S2? I ordered one off ebay. It flickers on then off on the TV. Then it says "not supported" on the TV.

    Edit: I went back and looked at the item description. It says it's for a Galaxy S2 i9100. How differant is an i9100 from our D710?

    As far as the mhl adapter there's no difference, make sure that you connect to the tv and charger before connecting to the phone and see if that works.

    Thank you for the response OverByter. I tried that method, I must have gotten a defective one because it didn't work. I purchased a Samsung brand adapter and it worked perfectly. Why couldn't they just include the micro HDMI out on this phone!? I guess the price of using hardware vs software. Oh well, its working now and I'm happy.

    I have gotten one in the past for my Sprint GS2. Using a cheap HDMI cable, the quality was terrible, but using an expensive cable, the quality was excellent

    I agree with you completely. With HDMI cables, the quality is very important. I didn't realize this until I discovered it by experience. You can't get one of those three dollar ones from Amazon to get a great picture :D
