  3. Tablet to HDMI? Does it work?
2 years ago#1
Will be having a presentation in a couple months and will be needing to have only simple pictures to illustrate and keep my co-ordinated throughout the procedure.

They will have a projector with a hdmi cable and a VGA.

I been looking up HDMI to micro usb converters but wonder if they would work on my tablet? All I have is a micro usb and headphone port. All it needs to be capable of doing is simply displaying pictures though.

My tablet is using a android 4.2 jellybean if that factors into it.

Would a simple converter work? Would I need to find a special app? Or am I out of luck and need to buy either a tablet with a hdmi port or a tablet for the presentation?

Really depends on the tablet.

Whatever you do, don't buy the cable beforehand and test it out. Everything works the first time you try, especially if you don't know what you're doing.

This, for example, I'm pretty sure my old Nexus 7 can't do it, not unless I root it.

It depends on the tablet... some even have a micro-HDMI port.
