    I have been looking online for a place to buy an MHL (microusb to HDMI) cable for my soon-to-be-owned Evo 3D. I have not been able to find one. Has anyone found one? Perhaps I am not searching for the correct type of cable? I have been searching for 'MHL cable' and variants. Thanks.

    Thanks for the link. I live in the US. Link seems to be for UK. The graphic shows a 'box' sort of thing connected to too. Is that a splitter?

    I believe its a MHL adapter since your tv would not likely have a MHL port ... So The MHL plugs into your phone and then you plug your HDMI into the adapter and tv.

    This link will show it better : http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/bizlink-m...ack-p29839.htm

    Or try this one:
    ACCELL Cables - Audio, Video, Speaker, Computer Cables and Interconnects
    As the MHL port is both for charging and HDMI this adapter appears to let you plug in both your charger to keep the phone charged up and use the HDMI out. It does require a separate HDMI cable though.

    [EDIT] Sorry, I guess no one actually sells that adapter, yet.

    Based on what I have seen about the MHL. If you have a TV that is MHL compliant (they aren't any released yet, IIRC), the cable can be a usb mini / MHL on one end, and HDMI on the other and you can charge, while streaming and get some control (likely only play/pause).

    If you just connect to a standard HDMI port, it will only play and not charge, and you can get a cable that has HDMI and another USB port for charging.



    In one of the CTIA videos of the EVO 3D on YouTube, the person demonstrating the phone said that it would charger over HDMI, but I'm not sure based on the guy from the MHL consortium.

    Don't buy that one.

    The micro HDMI to HDMI cable is what is used on the current HTC EVO 4G and the Motorola DROID X. The cable that will be needed for the EVO 3D is specifically the MHL cable.

    any update on this? I still haven't been able to find one and now we know that the phone doesn't come with one in the box. I'm kinda wishing that they kept the regular HDMI port at this point.

    IDK, but a lot of sites are saying on the 24th for EVO 3D products. However this works with the GS2.

    yeah, there are numerous places outside the US or on pre-order/backorder, or ebay, etc, I was just hoping a real store might have one in stock so we don't have to wait for days after the phone is released to use the HDMI out.

    it would. MHL is prettly much a standard, any certified adapter will work with any certified device.

    Guys, I would be cautious with most of these suppliers that say they have it in stock...also a quick google search on expansys and their reviews speak for themselves. I have been burned before, so kind of learnt to trust the main guys like Amazon, newegg, buy etc...

    [From expansys - expansys.com - Reviews, Ratings and Prices at ResellerRatings]

    I ordered a part on 1/20/09. Each time I emailed an inquiry they said they were expecting the item "by the end of the week".

    A month later and it still is not in stock. Needless to say, I canceled my order. Fortunately, they were prompt in sending an email confirming cancelation. Now I just need to make sure my card doesn't get charged.

    Expansys have double charged me for an item ordered a month ago and still have not delivered it even though they reported it as shipped a fortnight ago

    Review of expansys.com by Graemehull
    Don't buy from these people! I bought an HTC s710 top of the range mobile phone which arrived with a cracked screen. I contacted them on the day it arrived, and they said was HTCs responsibility, despite the fact that their website clearly states that they offer replacements and refunds within 21 days. I contacted HTC who said it was Expansys's responsibility. So I've paid 270 for broken phone from this bunch of cowboys, who's customer service was appalling DONT EVER BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE!!!!!!!

    Pros: Offer what u cant get here easily.

    Cons: I couldnt agree more with the bad reviews they should have the decency to update their site and tell u the Melbourne office DOESNT EXIST anymore. When they say its in stock DONT BELIEVE IT!! Still waitingn to see if i get what i paid for.

    Overall: What can i say, extremely disappointed. Wish i had serached out these reviews first. So far the jurys still out, but Im not happy so far. Horrendous that they seem to have not updated there site since there only Australian office closed not informing anybody here. Pretty shabby behaviour as far as Im concerned. SUX BIGTIME!!! That includes if, when & in what condition I receive my order. Avoid them.

    I've looked all over for a HTC MHL - HDMI TV-Out Cable and can't find one. In the link above there is a UK site that has it but I can't purchase thru paypal (they don't ship to the US).
    If anyone finds one for sale please post a link.
