    I just bought the Student Edition of the Tab 2 7.0 at Fry's on Friday, 8/24/12; and I am enjoying it a lot. The sales rep told me I could get an HDMI adapter to mirror the Tab's screen on an HD TV by ordering the adapter from Samsung. I went to the Samsung website and checked on accessories for the Tab 2 7.0, but there was no listing for an HDMI adapter.

    It looks like Samsung did in fact produce an HDMI adapter for some of their earlier tablets, but I have not been able to confirm that these older HDMI adapters will work with the Tab 2 7.0. Has anybody tried this and had success with it? I would like to be sure it works before ordering one online.

    It looks like the answer is NO. The Samsung HDTV adapter does not work with this model for some reason. This is based on comments from customers on Samsung's own support forum. Apparently the Samsung manual initially said the Tab 2 7.0 did offer HDTV capability, but that comment has now been removed from the latest version of the manual. There is some suggestion that Samsung may eventually sell an updated adapter that will work, but that is far from clear. This capability may not have been included by Samsung in order to reduce costs and hit the price point of $249.

    I have both a 10.1 and a Tab 2 7.0. I purchased the adapter and it only works on my 10.1. It sucks but hopefully they will release one out for the Tab 2.

    Even though the Samsung HDMI adapter does not work for the Galaxy Tab2 7.0, this model still supports DLNA connections to a smart TV or using other DLNA certified devices such as a Sony PS3, etc. This is an alternative to HDMI that is useful for limited purposes. For example, using DLNA actually works pretty well for showing videos from your tablet on a DLNA connected TV or to play music files through the TV and a connected stereo once the wireless DLNA transmission gets going. There will be a bit of a lag before it starts to play. Photos can be shown as well, but slideshows move rather slowly in my experience and can, therefore, be rather frustrating to present using a DLNA connection.

    I just talked to Samsung support and they insisted that the EPL-3PHPBE adapter will work with it. I told the rep that my Tab 2 isn't listed as compatible on their own website, but she still insisted it would work. :/ I'm not about to plunk down money on something that I'm pretty sure will be a waste...

    I bought the dock and it did not work although the ad insisted that it worked with the 7 inch but not the 7 inch plus. I looks nice and charges well. I noticed that you had a problem in Nov. with the adapter. Did you buy one after talking w/ the tech? Thanks.

    Me too, no wonder the dock is on sale for 13 dollars lol. So there is absolutely no way to view tab 2 7.0 on a tv?

    No there is absolutely no way to mirror the tab througb a tv unless your tv is a smart tv which only limits you to play files that are alrrady on the tab to the tv, I have spoke to samsung and they have told me this, they are letting me file a complaint and I rrckon if theres enough complaints about it to samsung then they might do something about it, consideri g the older model tabs lets you do it so dont see why this one doesnt do it

    Supports HDMI/MHL connections to connect electronic devices to
    high-definition televisions (HDTVs) and displays..
    Maybe a class action lawsuit would be a possibility?

    I bought the old connector lead, ie tab2 connector one end and 3 phono plugs the other.RED..YEIIOW,.and WHITE.Tried feeding to samee sockets (VGA?) ON NEW TV did not work.Then fitted a scart to tv which had phono sockets built in,(RED, YELLOW,, WHITE,) Did not work.Does anyone know what is output from the tab2.7 socket? Also does anyone know what each pin on the socket is supposed to do and the lay out numbers.Must be a way of doing this.

    I've read somewhere that in fact they DO work with tab 2's so long as they receive a power input. But the question is do these adapters enable one?

    I guess there is no HDMI for this, I have 1 too. But I now use quicksupport from teamviewer to show on pc. I go full screen and use HDMI to show my tablet on hdtv. So, there is a way.
