    Anyone have any luck with connecting their Pixel 5 to a projector? I have the cable that the manufacturer suggested and it does not work.

    The cable is a 3 in 1 HDMI/USB-C/USB for power. When connected it gets no signal.

    When connected with the same cable to my backup Galaxy S8+ it works. The S8 uses an app called Samsung DEX.

    Have tried several apps but no go. Also cannot switch the device from "Connected Device" to "This Device".

    Thanks

    I am not sure that pixels have hdmi out built in. Am sure I read somewhere that it doesn't. The Galaxy does have hdmi out to work with the Dex desktop app.

    Pixels (and many other phones running stock Android) to not have video out via USB-C. Google's answer is to use Chromecast for video out functionality.

    Yeah, that's too bad. I do happen to have a spare Chromecast device that I used but that's a pain. Thanks for your prompt responses.

    I've never tried to do that with my Pixel 5. A shame that it can't work!

    For some Apple devices, the Apple equivalent for that cable/connector doesn't work (nothing will show up on the TV/projector) with some device/TV/projector combos unless power is also plugged into the cable/connector. Maybe also has to do with some of the HDMI/AV cables, because I also sometimes have a similar problem with a mini camcorder if I use a 25ft thin HDMI cable, as opposed to a short 6ft thicker HDMI cable.
