    Is it possible to hook the Maxx up to a TV by HDMI? My bionic had the dedicated port and I haven't seen anything saying that you can with the Maxx. I tried the miracast with a netgear receiver. The results weren't that great. Just looking for some options. I'm a big fan of hardlining things

    Keep trying other singles. It's the only way. I miss the port, to, but it is one less thing to break.

    fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

    I was hoping the maxx had an HDMI port...but it didn't. (Obviously) I went to best buy and bought a rocketfish MHL adapter when I had my Note 2. Hoping that would work. I was trying to use it to watch TV using the xfinity app. Which it didn't. The app itself blocks the use because it senses the adapter.

    What I do now is use wireless tether...hook my laptop up to my TV using HDMI. Then watch TV via the Comcast website.

    I was hoping to avoid anything like that. Mainly want it for when I'm working odd hours since I keep a small TV in my locker. Will any other apps work using the plug? Netflix or the premium movie channel apps?

    For netflix, YouTube, HBO Go, you can get a Chromecast for $35.

    I wish I had a good answer for you. I don't have Netflix or any other app to watch TV on. Just be aware of what happened to me. Try and buy local so it's easier to return if needed

    To my understanding you need a WiFi connection to use chromecast. That unfortunately isn't an option for me with this setup

    You are correct - Chromecast uses Wifi.

    That's my problem too. I can't afford internet at home. Tethering is my only option

    Can anyone confirm the maxx supports slimport? I tried a mhl adapter and it didn't work but wasn't sure if slimport did.

    Slimport doesn't look any different than an MHL adapter. Other than the fact that the MHL adapter that I had needed a power source. It would charge as you used it
