    Anything locked out as far as video services go?

    This is the official Samsung HDMI adapter $39.99:

    Amazon.com: Adapter HDMI EPL 3FHU for Samsung Galaxy s3: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Here is one that has the adapter to fit a regular sized HDMI cord in a smaller plug $9.00:

    Amazon.com: Original Samsung HDTV Adapter TIP (5 to 11 Pin Converter) EPL-FU10BEBSTD for Galaxy S3 (9300): Cell Phones & Accessories

    And then here's the official Samsung multimedia dock $32.00:

    Amazon.com: Samsung EDD-D200BEGSTA Galaxy S III Multimedia Dock - Desktop Charger - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Does the multimedia dock work for outputting HDMI in some capacity? Thanks for the input!

    all i can input is definately go for a samsung one and make sure its specific to the s3.
    ive just been delivered a faulty cheaper 3rd party adaptor

    the description of the dock sounds like you wont get HDMI from the s3 through it since it says it works with other samsungs and the s3 is wired differently. what you need is a MHL-HDMI cable/adaptor specificly for the s3

    Seeing as how there is only a speaker line output, I'd say no. but I could be wrong and you may be able to. I wouldn't assume you'd need the dock to do it when you can just buy the cable.

    I've been reading that anything above 46" at 240hz FOR GAMING will be choppy, basically skip frames! I'm going to assume that its only good for 120hz. But this is just for gaming....for video, it is fine! Thats what I have read and aware of. You may want to research it further for your own use.

    Unfortunately I don't believe that's true. I haven't tried it myself but I read somewhere in the forums that content like NFL video (from the NFL Mobile app if I remember correctly) is blocked from being output to the TV. I don't know if the same applies to web browser-based content. Please do a search in the forums to get more specifics on what was reported. (I don't have NFL Mobile now that Verizon charges for it or I'd check it out myself.)

    As far as the multimedia dock goes, the port on the back appears to only be a charging port - I tried connecting the MHL adapter and it wouldn't plug in. So I guess that multimedia only means audio (which kind of sucks when you consider the implication of multimedia). Oh well, perhaps the 5 to 11 pin plug would work (I doubt it though).

    This is a great question. I bought the NBA League Pass for mobile only and was interested in finding out what will happen if I purchased the official adapter and displayed that on my TV. Some initial research shows that the NBA League Pass has worked. Maybe I will pick up an adapter and find out soon.

    Yeah you should be good for gaming. Your under 120hz and your TV is less than 46".

    I bought the Samsung MHL adapter from Verizon. It cost about the same as Amazon. It was $39.99. I have the cracked HBO GO application so I can watch HBO on the MHL. You can find it on the XDA forums.

    Be aware that on some TVs the image does not fully format to the screen. I've had it where the image overscans top and bottom (image goes off the screen) but underscans on the sides (image has black bars on the sides.)

    The only time I use the mhl adaptor is when in hotels on business travel, so I have had the chance to work it on a number of different TV brands.

    I wonder if some of those tv's had the picture zoomed in or stretched. Even so, good to know.
