    HDMI dongle universal

    Which "kit" or dongle do I buy in order to be able to hook my phone (LG SPECTRUM) to the tv monitor? (how do I hook up my phone to my tv monitor?)

    oh wait. I still need some kind of cable thingie to attach it to?
    "This MHL to HDMI adapter incorporates Mobile High-Definition Link version 1.0 technology. The adapter easily connects to the USB 2.0 Micro-B port of a MHL enabled device. Use your HDMI cable to connect the MHL to HDMI adapter to an HDTV or an HDMI home theater system."

    Yeah, you still need to buy an HDMI cable. Monoprice has good deals on MHL adapters and HDMI cables.

    Got it! Thanks!!!

    ooops, not so got it.
    I am confused on which "cable" thingie to get so I can plug the adapter thingie in to it. When I go to Amazon, they list a thousand different cables, each with a variance...

    help...

    Go to monoprice.com. Look up "MHL adapter." Put one in your cart.

    Now look up HDMI cables. Find the length and color you want and put a ferrite core cable in your cart.

    Buy. Should be less than $20, shipped.

    Sorry for being such a smart@$$, but it really is just like that. It's exactly how I did it and it works incredibly.

    But, but, but... it's not that easy! Not for techno challenged like me.

    I chose an adapter. I scrolled the page. It says good for LG Spectrum. Yay!
    I scroll the page further, and it says:
    Note: Monoprice strongly recommends the use of minimum 24 AWG HDMI® cables when connecting a device, such as this adapter, between the source and destination devices to ensure minimal signal loss and maximum High Speed signal reliability.

    So
    Soooo, I search for the 24 awg hdmi cable and a list comes up... and I chose 10' but there's no color. Color would be nice, to grab in an instant from the tangled wires around the tv/vcr/speakers...

    S
    ooo, I come back to your helpful post (which probably is really easy for most people) and highlight/copy "ferrite core cable" and it brings up a page of chaotic choices once again.

    Can you/someone have mercy and give me a direct link to each so I can just purchase the exact things I need? With color hopefully. (blue, red, purple, green, I don't care)

    thanks!

    Personally, I wouldn't care about 24 vs 28 AWG cables. I use 28 and it's fine. And it's $5 cheaper.

    Hope this helps, my technically challenged friend. When you receive these items (I have faith in you), report back so I can give you a few more tips. :-)

    p.s. Sorry about the raw links. I'm on my phone and did it the easiest way.
