Using an MHL connection with an Android phone

MHL is a connection standard that helps transmit images and audio from the device to an external monitor. To make an MHL connection, you must have an MHL-enabled phone and a TV with an HDMI (MHL) port. A regular HDMI port is also likely to be plugged in, but the possibility is very low.

The specific steps are as follows:

Step 1: Connect the smallest end of the MHL cable to the charging port of your phone.

Step 2: Connect the HDMI end of the MHL cord to the TV's HDMI port, then connect the USB end to the TV's USB port.

Step 3: Use the remote to press the TV's power button (this button may be called the INPUT, SOURCE button, or the arrow icon, depending on the TV).

Step 4: Then select the HDMI/MHL signal.

Step 5: Now all the content displayed on the phone will be projected on the large screen of the TV. You will easily watch movies, surf the web or play games on the big screen of the TV.

Note: The best supported MHL cable is with the HDMI (MHL) port on the TV. If your TV only has a regular HDMI port, it may also be able to connect, but the ability to support it is not high.

Mirror phone screen to TV via Miracast (Screen Mirroring) with Android phone or Windows Phone

Today, most Smart TVs and some Internet TVs have the feature to protect the phone screen on the TV. This feature can be named Miracast, Mirroring, Screen Share, Mirroring image.... however, in essence, they are all activities of projecting the phone screen on the TV.

How to use this feature:

Step 1: Enable image mirroring/ Miracast, Screen Mirroring... on TV.

Step 2: Enable this feature on the phone. (On phones, this feature, if available, will be located in the settings, depending on the brand, it is named screen mirroring, mirroring, mirroring my screen, Screen Mirroring....).

Step 3: The phone detects and connects to the TV, then the phone screen will be projected on the TV.

For Sony TVs, you can use Photo Share or Google Cast

All Sony Internet TV models and Sony Android TV models now have the Photo Share feature. With this feature, you can share images from your phone to your TV easily (up to 10 phones can be connected at a time).

Meanwhile, Google Cast is a special feature integrated on Sony Android TVs, allowing you to project YouTube and applications that support this feature to the TV.

DLNA can be used on Android phones

DLNA is a fairly common form of wireless connection on phones, televisions, laptops... This connection standard uses a wifi network, no need for cables, very compact and convenient.

Use the application developed by the company (available on Android phones and iPhones)

Currently, companies develop applications to control TV by phone very well with additional features that allow transferring pictures, music, and movies from the phone to the TV.

Use Air Play, use with iPhone

AirPlay is a wireless transmission method developed by Apple, used to connect iPhone, iPad to TV via wifi without using cables (Similar to Miracast often used on Android phones).

To connect iPhone to TV via AirPlay, you need a device called Apple TV.

Use HDMI, VGA or AV ports to transfer pictures from iPhone to TV

Đối với iPhone bạn không thể kết nối với điện thoại qua cáp MHL như Android, thay vào đó bạn cần chuẩn bị một số loại cáp chuyển rồi từ đó kết nối với tivi.
