    Does the Note 2 have an HDMI outlet? If so, where is it? Does it require a special Samsung cord?

    If they included the HDMI out, it would come from the usb port and use an adapter.

    Either that or with one of the docks they are going to start selling.

    You need something called an HML adapter, this will allow you to hook up an HDMI cable. But make sure it is specifically for the Note 2. The GS3 one will not work as they are different internal pin layouts

    I agree, this is so annoying! Yet another cord to buy! I just got through recently buying a few HDMI cords for my old Droid Razr Maxx. Even if I want to buy an HDMI cord for my Note 2, none of the local retailers carry these items. Double annoying! Haha!

    The GS3 cord doesn't work? That's a surprise. I was under the impression that both the GS3 and GSN2 were using the 11-pin layout, while every other phone in existence that supports MHL is using the 5-pin layout.

    Is there a difference between the two 11-pin ports?

    I read that people were experiencing some strange problems with the S3 MHL adapter. You really do need to use all the intended components for it to fully function. Ie - must use GN2 charging cable, MHL adapter and wall charger for it to work right.

    As for the HDMI cable itself, doesn't matter. HDMI is HDMI. Samsung won't be changing that to boost accessory sales anytime soon.

    Seeing as how Samsung's official adapter is listed for both phones, I'm hoping the S3 cable works fine on the N2. I'll test it out when I get my phone, as I still have my S3 cable here.

    Not sure if you've had a chance to test these yourself yet, but I finally got my GN2 last night.

    The GS3 MHL adapter works fine. Screen Standby app also works great. My old USB OTG cables also work, though I can't remember what brand or make they are.

    Yup, no problem. Unless I missed something, the screen standby app makes it a bit hard to navigate the phone, as the screen just turns off immediately, but it turns the screen back on as soon as the MHL adapater is unplugged, so it's not too bad.

    Sorry, just a clarification please. So the HDMI cord for the Samsung Galaxy S3 works perfectly fine for the Note 2 ?

    Thanks, Casey

    Yeah, I didn't really like that the screen stayed on while watching videos, either, so this app is a pretty good solution. Requires root, according to the app name, but as I'd already rooted, I can't confirm if you actually need root.

    Yeah, the 11-pin MHL adapater for the GS3 works fine with the GN2. I bought the cable back before the GN2 was released.

    On the Note II and GS3 Samsung went from a 5 pin to 11 pin setup. If you already have an adapter from a previous device, there's a $9 adapter to convert to the 11 pin setup; Amazon.com: Original Samsung HDTV Adapter TIP (5 to 11 Pin Converter) EPL-FU10BEBSTD for Galaxy S3 (9300): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Im having trouble using my Samsung hdmi/mhl adapter with my note. It worked fine with my gs3 then I got the note 2 and now the picture is fine but the sound is garbled and unintelligible. I turned the first phone in and it does the same thing with the second one as well. Can't seem to find anyone else having the same issue. anyone have any ideas?

    What I read is there is a specific cable adapter for the Note 2 on Amazon reviews.

    Yeah, only and 14 dollars. Works great. Picture quality is also great. As soon as I plugged in my phone was on my screen. Netflix and movies from media hub look very nice.
