    Question Screen mirroring with mhl cable to hdmi

    So, I was referred here from another forum that covers the galaxy s5, which is the phone I have, but they said this forum is more active and I could possibly find my solution here. The problem I'm having is a bought this,















    Roll over image to zoom in


    BOSCHENG
    Lightning to HDMI Cable for iPhone iPad & Samsung Smartphones, Boscheng Plug and Play Lightning & MHL to HDMI Adapter HDTV Adapter Cable for Screen Mirroring on HDTV Projector and the problem is I simply cannot get it to both audio and video at the same time and have tried everything and looked high and low for the answer/solution with no luck. So, I did read that some android devices cannot do both at the same time. Does anybody know if this is the case with the galaxy S5 when it comes to screen mirroring?

    Hi there, and welcome. I'm not quite sure if I understand the question. Can you add some specifics of what you're trying to do?

    I bought this,https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and so far it either does picture with no sound or sound with no picture on my Samsung smart tv. By the description it should be plug and play and I have the volume up on the TV and phone, but no sound comes from the phone or TV when watching a video such as YouTube and so on. So, I'm trying to figure out why my S5 won't do both when using that wire when it's supposed to work on my phone.

    I've found with cables and adapters like that it all comes down to quality. I've ordered a few cheaper universal adapters and always have had issues. I'm going to guess it's something in the cable.

    Ah gotcha that makes sense.

    I did a quick Google search on the problem. It sounds like you are not alone, though there is a lot of conflicting information on a solution. Try going into settings under accessories and see if you are able to enable the option there.

    That's what it sounds like to me. If you are getting different results each time you plug it in...

    What kind of television are you plugging it into? Also what are you plugging the USB power part into... Make sure you're using an adapter and plugging it into the wall.

    Yeah I seen that too about going under accessories and sadly had no luck. I'm thinking of just returning it and getting one made by Belkin and in the reviews a guy did say it works on his S8 and his son's S5.

    Not really every time I plug it in, but can get it to do one or the other while plugged in just not both for some reason. I just tried it with my spare power cable / wall charger and still no sound. So, I'd say it's probably best to return it and get the Belkin cable.

    That would be what I'd do next. Keep us updated!!
