Connecting Samsung tablet to Avtex TV in the moho

Whilst were were away I wanted to watch the British Lions rugby which I can access on NowTV on our Samsung tablet. I then had the bright idea of plugging it into our Avtex TV in the MH so I could watch it on a marginally bigger screen with better sound.

I used the lead off the charger as it had a USB end however, whilst the TV knew that there was something attached, it wouldn't show the Samsung page. The TV gave me the option of Movies, Sounds or Pictures but none of these would open to show the tablet content.

My question is therefore: Is there different kind of lead I need to do this as the basic one for charging didn't seem to be able to carry data. If so, could anyone suggest what I need?

I wanted to watch Netflix downloads on our van TV a while back Graham, I did a Google and you need a mini HDMI lead, but mine was for a Samsung S5, I now have one for a S7, but don't need it as we don't do TV now.

I've no reason to think it couldn't be done for what you want, which tablet do you have? we already know about the blue ones so we'll gloss over that.

This is the one I needed for the S5 (got one for sale as it happens, phone not lead) note it has to get power from a USB socket for it work, but basically, it is plug and play

Thinking about it, I was trying to connect through the USB port on the telly. If I need an HDMI lead I'll need to check it has an HDMI port.
