    Jeffrey, if you had gotten a MHL adapter that is for a Galaxy S3, and you have a S2 Skyrocket (presumably) or any other Android phone other than S3, the adapter probably will not work. For the S3, it uses an 11-pin micro USB connector. Most Android phones use a 5-pin.

    Edit: Incidentally, I bought a MHL adapter while I was overseas, and didn't realize that S3's have a different pin (they can be charged with either pin type, oddly enough). Anyone want to buy mine?

    Anyways, I'm looking into getting one myself since the one I got was useless, and came across this: Amazon.com: Menotek Micro USB to HDMI MHL Adapter IMPROVED WITH RCP (Remote Control Protocol) for Samsung Galaxy S2, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Evo 4G Tablet, HTC Sensation 4G, Sprint Epic 4G Touch, Galaxy Nexus: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Do you have power going to the mhl adapter? Also if you have a ps3, Xbox or a wireless DVD player you can download imediashare app and stream it as a media server and use no wires.
