    Hello there! What exactly do you mean by just seeing the DeX screen? Are you seeing the DeX loading screen (basically a DeX logo on a black background) constantly without ever actually loading DeX? Or do you see anything else on the TV? Some apps (mainstream ones should work, though) do not allow HDMI video output unless your TV is HDCP-compatible to avoid piracy and some others just don't work in DeX mode (although those usually give you an error when trying to open in DeX).

    If you just want to watch video on your TV and (for some reason) DeX isn't working, you also have the option to mirror the screen instead. This will mirror exactly what's on your phone's screen, so the downside is you have to keep the screen on at all times. To switch from DeX to mirroring, just swipe down on your notification bar when you plug in an HDMI cable and it should give you both options.
