    I have a Samsung Note Pro 12.2 and I recently discovered that I can connect an external HD (as long as it's formatted to exfat32).
    Given that I've been using this a lot more than my laptop in recent months, I was wondering if I could watch videos off the external HD while the tablet is connected to TV. Obviously the tablet cannot do this natively, since there is only one USB output.

    It's unlikely, but I was wondering if there is some miracle USB hub out there that would enable me to have my tablet connected to an external HD while AT THE SAME TIME, the tablet is connected to my TV via HDMI. If I could find a way to do this, I honestly could scrap my laptop altogether.

    I did do a search and found this: https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=fsYQ6TSm
    But I get the feeling it can't do what I'm asking...or maybe it can? I'm quite a noob with all this.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated -- thanks in advance!
