    Is it possible to connect a phone to a TV through a HDMI cable? Or any way of connecting them without using Chromecast?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy A5. Recently bought a USB-C to HDMI adapter but can't get it to work. TV just says no signal, and I've tried two different HDMI slots in the TV and different USB functions on my phone. Bought an adapter on the cheaper end of the scale so not sure if that's the problem.

    (Ideally I'd like to play a BT Sport app through it but Chromecast doesn't support it)

    Hey there!

    MHL support for your phone has been dropped, unfortunately Which means that you cannot connect to your TV by HDMI.

    The only way is to use Miracast or Chromecast :/

    Thought something like that might be the case. Thanks for your help.
