    All Sammy phones had MHL until the S6 family...I hope the Note 5 still has it.

    Does it have MHL???-image.jpg

    This was a major issue for me because I used my note 4 to connect to a projector. I've searched for a way to connect this device to the projector without wifi and this was the product that I ended up buying from Best Buy just now. We tried it in the store without being connected to a network using wifi Direct and it worked perfectly. Hopefully this will help those of us who needed this ability.

    With a replaceable battery, sd slot, IR Blaster, MHL, less crack-able design and lower cost, the Note 4 still RULES!!!!

    Of course with one drop though, the Note 5 users have an unofficial Spidey case phone as a bonus Just funnin'

    I tried it with my MHL and Slimport cables, and neither even gave a glimmer of hope of working.

    There is a link where Samsung customer service confirms the function is not on the Note 5 and just a few posts above ours.

    It works on the Note 4, but I always found it to be a battery sucking demon. Mirrorcast is much better, but of course not as common as hdmi inputs.

    So did Mirrorcast work for you on the Note 5? Did you use Chromecast or the Fire stick or what?

    I had an HDMI cord that also plugged into an outlet, so my S5 phone stayed charged.

    What other options are there? I'm thinking of trying the ScreenBeam item.

    In the tips and tricks thread someone got their Amazon Fire Stick to work, but another article posted had a Fire Stick from Germany and it didn't work.

    I can in fact confirm that you can mirror the note 5 WITHOUT WiFi, with the Amazon Fire Stick. I first tried the chromecast today but that does require wifi even though google had earlier said they were gonna update it.

    The initial set up of the fire stick DOES require WiFi. But that is a one time setup, to register the device and get updates. After that its simple

    1. Turn the TV on with the firestick plugged into HDMI.



    2. Goto settings, then display, then enable Mirroring





    3. On the Note 5, enable mirroring and select your firestick. (After the first time it should automatically connect.)



    4. Wahlah! Yer mirroring. This is great. Now I can stream netflix, or amazon prime, (or anything i want) from my phone. Wooohooo!

    Yes, let us know. I read the reviews and no one said note 5. There were note 4 reviews. S6 didn't with with this either, according to the reviews, so I'm a bit skeptical fit the note 5. But, since you've ordered it, try it and let us know.

    I think you should re-read the reviews and questions. It is stated several times that it doesn't work with the S6 and no one mentions it working with a Note 5.

    I'll give it a shot. Actually, it was under the questions and answers on amazon that someone said it worked for them. If not I'll return it, and keep using the miracast module that I use on my S6 Edge. I'll keep you posted.

    I see a return in your future, through my crystal ball. Lol, I can confirm that tthe MHL adapter does not work on the Note 5. I bought this adapter earlier this year for my previous note. The Note 5 does not have MHL capabilities. That's why I switched to the Amazon fire Stick.

    Just finished a chat with Samsung to find out that after getting rid of the new iphone which I did not like and going back to a latest Note, Samsung has made it more like the iphone and did away with some of the awesome features I enjoyed with the Note 3. One of those features was the ability to connect to my pocket HDMI projector via an MHL adaptor. I was referred to the Allshare Cast Hub ($58 on Amazon). Hopefully, it will work. The iphone at least did that!

    I use an amazon fire stick all the time. As a truck driver, I don't always have access to wifi so my chromecast officially stays at home now. I bought a fire stick at best buy for 35 bucks. I can mirror from my phone to the device with it plugged into tv. I stream netflix from my phone to the tv practically every night.

    very interesting. We're big on Xperia in our household. Major feature being that, when travelling, we can plug our Xperia tablets or Z3 compacts into the HDMI TV port when travelling. Great for music and netflix without having to use wifi/chromecast. (One hotel recently had a samsung smart tv and we were able to mirrorcast (?) to that). I've been looking at the one plus 3 which also does NOT support MHL. However, I'm an Amazon Prime subscriber and if this 'trick' with the inexpensive firestick works... it does open up possibilities. thanks. @DavyPaul
