    Did you also get the 5 pin to 11 pin adapter? That's needed for Samsung phones.

    This is the adaptor I have. If this is the wrong kind can you tell me where to find an inexpensive one that will work

    Most likely what dragonsamus said.

    A Chromecast and the Allcast app will do the same job most of the time. Also a lot of TV's have DLNA, though often called something else, but the phone will play video to it if it is enabled.

    This is what I have. It works with my Note 3 and Note 4. And also HTC One.

    When using it with a non Samsung device, you do not need the 11 pin to 5 pin adapter.

    So the first cable you posted should work with a Vizio tv right?

    You need both cables if you have a Samsung phone. It'll work with any TV with an HDMI plug.

    Yea, many of them,the full sized USB has to be plugged into a powered USB for the thing to work. And with the Galaxy you need the 11 to 5 pin adapter mentioned earlier.

    The problem with Chromecast....Allcast...type solution is that you have to have an internet connection.
    The way they actually work is to direct the Server they are receiving their stream from to sent the identical stream to whatever device you want to "cast" to.... It is not actually being sent from your device.
    MHL does send directly from your device via the MHL to HDMI dongle.
    If you are only able to get cellular connection (not internet), you'll need the MHL dongle to put/cast your display onto the Tv.
