    I want to buy my father a Nexus 7, but I need help in determining what HDMI adapter would work so I can connect it to his HDTV. He will be using an app to watch European tv.

    Any help is appreciated.

    The Nexus 7 does not come with an HDMI port.

    I understand that as I already have one. I was just asking what adapter is available to hook it up to an HDMI port on his TV?

    you cannot output to tv from the nexus as it does not support MHL at all, sorry.

    Would Nexus 10 support it?

    No, I don't believe it does.

    Yeh it doesn't seem to work. I have a USB -> HDMI which I bought for my Galaxy Nexus.
    Plugging it into the nexus 7 crashes the device. Pretty inconsistent and annoying

    Yeah, major flaw this but Google were probably thinking that someone would come up with another method to stream HD video from the device.

    What is this app where you can watch European TV. Being a European myself, that would interest me. I watch German TV via the browser and TV5, a French station - also via the browser. But such an app may give me more options.
