    I know there are many threads about Dex but I don't wish to connect to a laptop. I want to connect to a TV to watch Netflix in 1080p. (No wifi available. TV not a smart tv so no built in apps nor mirroring)

    I do not wish to use wireless solutions so please stay on topic.

    Has anyone been successful connecting with a wire to tv? Exactly what cable would I use? I don't want to waste money buying a usb c to HDMI cable if it won't work. There are many kinds of converters but I don't know.if i need one and if so which?

    Thanks!

    This one claims to work with the Note 9 so, at worst, they'll have to take it back. (But I've found Amazon to make their vendors stick pretty close to the truth.)

    This adapter by Chootech works just like Dex. The one con is your phone doesn't charge unless you lay it down on your wireless charger.
    And the Dex program kicks right in once hooked up. I sold my Dex in favor of this since I had 2 laptops already.
    This will only let you open 5 apps that l remember off the top of my head though. Really handy in a pinch.

    Stock Explore
    My files folder
    Gallery and a couple others that I can't remember off the top.

    Had this when I had my Note 8.
    And I think at the time I only paid like 5 bucks to get that adapter because I had a credit and then I had some sort of Amazon gift card so I just applied all that, at the time and it was like $5.00 woohoo👍

    You can open Netflix through Samsung Explorer. Works good through carrier.

    Something like this should work. Before I got my blue ray player to mirror on my Note 8, I used an HDMI cable to connect my phone to my TV. With the 9, just use a USB-C on one end and HDMI on the other.

    No internet, cable, wifi, e.t.c., required. All other types (Roku, etc), required that (no matter what anyone says, I tried the Google one).

    Just an FYI, most probably haven't tried a cable because of all the possibilities in 2019. However, find a cable from Amazon. Read the reviews and then decide to order. If it doesn't work, return it.

    I don't want Dex and I don't care if adapter charges my phone. I only want to mirror the screen by hdmi cable.

    Won't any USB-C - HDMI cable work? Don't understand the issue, though I haven't tried this.

    Just cancel Dex mode. Nobody has tried it because everyone screen mirrors.

    I just told you I have this cable by Chootech, posted pictures and said yes you can use this, just select screen mirror mode instead of Dex.
    It's real easy bro.

    No problem bro. You don't even need internet.
    Again, just remember to switch out of Dex mode and select screen mirror and off you go.

    I've used an adapter and hate it. Since the phone's screen isn't the same size as a TV's screen you end up with wonky black bars.

    My dad got a new LG TV (only 43", but 4K) and my Note 9 can use smart view on that when I tried it at his house. My blue ray is a Sony.

    I'd like a way to connect my Note9 to my work monitor for DeX so I can watch Netflix during lunch. It's a generic older style Monitor without HDMI. Any ideas?

    Used TV remote and selected picture mode. √select screen to fit or even better
    √wide fit.
    Barely a black bar on the television.
    But No problem whatever different strokes for different folks.
    Honestly though it really isn't that bad. I just didn't need it no more.
    But kept the cable for you know that rainy day.

    Likely because most folks probably have wifi and don't need to.
