    Default Connecting Galaxy S4 to Vizio TV through MHL adapter.

    So i bought a samsung Micro Usb to Hdmi or MHL adapter that was supposed to work for the Galaxy s4. I plugged everything in to my 42inch Vizio and I couldn't see a picture. I wanted to know if anyone has been able to connect their Galaxy s4 with their Vizio tv's using an MHL adapter and not the internet.

    I have the same problem. I used the 5 to 11 pin adapter from Ebay with my Sprint Galaxy S4 and didn't work on my Vizio 47 TV. Then I used the red Y cable also on Ebay that they said it supposed to work, the one that connects to the usb port on the TV and still nothing.
    I've been reading a lot of forums. I found one that has a list of MHL Compatible TVs and Vizio is not on the list.
    The weird thing is that like 2 times, the phone did mirror on my TV but when I disconnected it, it didn't work anymore.
    Please help. I need to know if anyone has tried the OEM Samsung MHL 2.0 adapter on a Vizio TV?

    I have a Vizio 55 inch razor led smart tv. I went to TV settings went to cec settings and turned the cec function on and for some reason it only seemed to work with my hdmi plugged into the hdmi side, next went to input and clicked on mhl and it mirrors my galaxy s4 (unrooted). If it doesn't work you might have to restart you phone while plugged in like you are going to be using it I had to mess with mine for a few minutes before I figured out how to get it to work.
