    Hi, I'll be traveling on a motorhome with my family for many hours, and would like to be able to stream Netflix, etc from my phone and watch on the TV. It's a few years old TV, I believe Panasonic brand so not Samsung brand. My phone is Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. I've been searching for how to do this but I've read there is no MHL option or HDMI cable connection option for the S6. Chromecast really isn't an option because we'll be driving down the highway and will rely on my mobile network. Any suggestions please on how I could make this work? Also please I'm not tech savvy so be patient with me. Thanks so much for any advice!!

    I'm not sure this meets your requirements for moving in a vehicle, because I'm pretty much a novice in TV connectivity myself. But this was recommended by some posters as an easy way to get an S6 Edge+ mirrored on a TV with an HDMI port. Sound goes to the TV, and gets muted on the phone:

    - Actiontec ScreenBeam Mini 2 - plugs into HDMI port, plus it needs USB power, which I get from my TV's USB port, using the included USB extension cord.
    - ScreenBeam Utility app - allows you to update the Mini 2's firmware, and also make config changes (I changed nothing, just used the defaults).
    - (optional) Miracast Widget & Shortcut - Use this to connect quickly. For some reason, I could not connect after the first time using the standard way (Swipe down --> down arrow on upper right --> EDIT upper right just to the left of up arrow --> Smart View). So now I always use this widget to connect, making for just a few steps (Switch TV input to that HDMI port, power the Mini 2, TV screen says "ready to connect" or similar, then I tap this widget et voila, a mirrored phone, which plays video flawlessly in my few tests.

    Unfortunately, I don't recall whether I initially connected using Samsung's Quick Connect or not. I've only used this setup a couple of times at a beach house, and I'm not there now to test and learn better how it all works (Quick Connect vs. EDIT/Smart View vs. Miracast widget).
