    Hi All
    I've recently purchased an Android tablet (Lenovo Yoga 10) and have discovered that there is no HDMI output. However, there is a Micro USB socket. Can anyone tell me how to connect the tablet to my Panasonic HDTV? I'm presuming there is some kind of usb to hdmi adapter cable available but which one (there seem to be several different kinds, some using the term MHL in the description)? Dont want to purchase the wrong one. Here's hoping you can help.

    A quick look around suggests it doesn't have this function. Some devices have MHL or slimport built in so an adaptor can give you hdmi out using the micro usb port, seems lenovo haven't included either. If you check under wireless networks there might be options somewhere for miracast or wireless display mirroring, check the miracast thread for more details if here is as the guys in there might be able t point you towards a dongle if it has it.

    What are you trying to achieve by linking it to the TV? There could be other ways to do the same thing like chromecast or DLNA options, mirroring isn't actually always the best option as it can tie up your tablet.
