I have the Average cable
The only reason I can see me being attached to the TV is because I bought the GT due to my PS3 crashing on me so because this is my new toy I'd still like a way to watch movies on my 42" (which is really all I used my PS for). The GT is great for movies on the go but when I'm at home, I wanna be able to kick back with the home theatre system and relax.

Before all the new bigger than 7" Tabs came out I remember only seeing 2 video options. The "Galaxy Tab™ Stereo/ Video Cable" (part # ECC1TP0BBEG) which breaks the dock connector into composite video w/ stereo audio and the "Galaxy Tab™ HDMI Multi-Media Dock" (part # ECR-D980BEG) that charges and has a HDMI output. Now Samsung has the "Galaxy Tab™ Adapter (HDTV)" part # EPL-3PHPBEG but Samsung's accessory website doesn't show the 7" tab as compatible!
Which of these or another are you using?

I have the composite a/v cable and it works great! It works on both a 32" older "tube" TV & my 42" HD LCD TV. It all depends on the quality of the video that you are trying to watch but I've found that it comes in handy quite often.

Is yours a Wifi-Only Tab? I ask because I know the HDMI dock doesn't work on the Wifi-Only ones and I remember reading the Composite cable is the same. I own the HDMI dock and tried showing it to a co-worker of mine, who has a Wifi only one (I have a sprint one) and it didn't work for him. I don't have any first hand knowledge of the Composite cable though... I hope it does work for the Wifi only ones so they can have at least some kind of A/V out...Current Device(s):T-Mobile - Samsung Galaxy S5
