    Do the new S7s support MHL wire connected to HDMI PORT on a Tv?

    Or do we have to use the all cast hub/chromecast/roku stick?

    My understanding is that there is no mhl support

    So is there a way to connect if we can't cast it? There must be an adapter to make this connection?

    On the note 5, I read that someone was able to do it with a fire stick. I haven't tried personally though

    I cast my g4 with a fire stick. Was hoping the 7 could do it.

    Does anyone know what I can use to mirror the S7 Edge to my TV via HDMI???

    I have been using MHL on my Sony Z3 and its perfect, but apparantly the S7 will not support it.

    I don't want anything that uses wifi as it is not always available.

    What can I use to just plug it in to the HDMI?

    How about WiDi or Miracast. Those both use wireless technology, but don't exactly depend on you having a wireless router to connect to the display. The Chrome Cast can also be connected to directly to cast the display as well.

    From what I read, the S7 / Edge no longer support MHL. (I don't think the S6 does, either). Instead I think it supports a DisplayPort adapter. Is there a cable that supports HDMI out from the these phones? Or will the NETGEAR Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter work:

    The Amazon fire stick will mirror it.

    You can use the Amazon fire stick to mirror the device or share content.

    Thanks, but I'm looking to mirror the screen to my car dash display, and the device I'd need to use won't support the Fire Stick.

    I have this same problem. I'm still looking for a solution. I have an older car with a/v input. I was using the mhl USB adapter to html to a/v with my s4. I've tried using allshare and casting it to my car but i believe the Samsung allshare device uses a two-way system in which it needs to pick up signals from the hdmi cable being fed back from the car.

    HI everybody!
    May you explain me how have you connected your device to the chormecast in a place without Wi-Fi connection?
    Because I tried several times but, at the end, someone told me that you need, in any case, a modem (even not conected to the internet) that is a big problem for me during the holidays because i don't have any modem in my house...

    You can use the HMDI connector from Samsung to connect your phone to tv.
    I tried it with my S7 Edge. The connector was from S5 accessories pack.

    You can 100% verify that the Samsung brand MHL adapter (micro USB to HDMI) works with your S7 or S7 Edge then? Is there any type of lag at all, or is it fast enough to pay Android games on the big screen with a Bluetooth controller? Thanks in advance!

    Hers's a work-around I've tested and used for the pass few days. You can download the HTC car apk, and sideload it onto your phone (search and download the file thru google, it will not install from the google play store). I have it on mines and outside of weather not displaying, it works (although a bit laggy). When you connect your phone to your receiver (provided its mirrorlink capable) the HTC Car Mode app should come up on the display of your reciever. You can add any app to it. To gain full-mirror, simply exit the app thru the red exit button, afterwards a prompt should asking you to choose the standard Touchwiz or Easy Mode launcher. Choose the standard one, and now you have full mirror/touch control of phone from your receiver (no root required!). This worked for my pioneer 4000nex.

    I can confirm that Samsung's MHL 3.0 to HDMI adapter does NOT work with the Galaxy S7 - the micro USB plug is non-standard and does not fit into the S7 socket. I normally use the adapter to connect my Galaxy Tab S2 to a non-MHL monitor.
