Playing tablet through my Avtex

Hi all

Been trying all day to play some downloaded films from my Samsung tablet through to my new Avtex tv, to no avail.

Using the normal usb cable to the usb slot on the tv, nothing...

What I am I doing wrong?

All help much appreciated.

Don't be an idiot all your life, take the odd day off.

Sweat sort of USB cable I'd it? Some are charging only rather than data. It would help to know which tablet you have, and what format the films have been saved in.

Avtex tv needs input from hdmi cable.

Download your files to a hard drive connect to a Sumvision Cyclone Android x4 plus thingy which in turn is connected to your Avtex via hdmi lead.

Works perfectly.

Search on this site for Sumvision.

Thanks for the replies, thought it might need an HDMI cable. Problem is the new Avtex has the HDMI ports on the back of the tv.The tv is flush mounted so no access to the ports, think I am going to buy a second hand old style Avtex where the ports are all on the side....sometimes progress seems counter intuitive...probably a cost saving measure putting them on the back.

The cable maybe just for charging, format is just downloaded from all4 to the tablet. Tablet is Samsung T 580 Galaxy.

Any room for one of these right angle HDMI adapters ?

Are you sure the inputs are on the back?

My Avtex is L217DRS and although the diagram shows the HDMI inputs as being on the back, they are actually accessible from the bottom of the set and it looks like the latest models are the same.

The illustration is for the L188DRS/L218DRS/L248DRS models.
