I had been to the retailer today.Tried with two different pieces of the SAMSUNG HDTV adapter (just in case if the earlier one was faulty) to connect the new GT-P5110 first to a Sony HDTV and then to a Samsung LED. (ensured that the external power supply was connected to the adapter). It did not work. In both cases the TV was sensing the HDMI port but there were no display and the message came up as "No Signal".

Is it possible to connect to a "NONE HD TV" with my TAB 2 10.1 using the "Samsung Galaxy TV OUT Cable"?
This is the cable which has the RED, YELLOW & WHITE type connection.
I understand the TAB 2 10.1 will connect to an HD TV using the "Galaxy Tab HDTV adaptor" and a HDMI Cable which is not a problem.
Its only sometimes when iam away the hotels still have the old CRT type TVs with only the RED, YELLOW & WHITE or Scart connections.
Has anyone been able to connect their TAB 2 10.1 or 7 using this type of connection?

Great you got yours working with the HDTV Adaptor. I have noticed on many US reviews they show the Tab 2 configured different to the UK version. The only thing I can think of is as you have a US version of the Tab 2 perhaps the configuration is not the same and allows the adaptor to work! perhaps! But good you got it to work.

I have same problem with the HDMI adapter on the Tab 2 GT-P5110. The only response I have had from Samsung is that "in theory it should work". I hope you get a more informative response!

Bit of a joke really, if this person new just a little about the Samsung Tab 2 they would have known it already comes pre installed with AllShare. That AllShare requires a Wireless connection with a DLNA compatible device to connect! well that was what i was told by my local retailer. Could be wrong! Lets hope a new cable comes out soon.

see the 'COMPATIBILITY' list (bottom right hand corner) of the Samsung Link for the 'HDMI Adapter EPL-3PHPBEGXAR'
only states compatibility with the 'Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5113TSYXAR'
no mention of compatibility with the GT-P5100 or GT-P5110
Galaxy Tab 7-inch, GT-P1000, Overcome v4.1.0 Android Gingerbread 2.3.6, P1000XWJQ8

only states compatibility with the 'Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5113SYXAR'
no mention of compatibility with the GT-P5100 or GT-P5110
So it seems that the Samsung HDMI Cable works ONLY for the GT-P5113 model and not for the GT-P5100 and GT-P5110...or not?

I also have seen coming this Sep from Samsung is there "Allshare Cast Dongle". Again a small little box same as the HTC media player but for the Samsung Galaxy S3! Has anyone come across this device or has any extra info to if its only for the S3 or perhaps as this box uses "DLNA" and "AllShare" that perhaps the Tab 2 could also connect with it?
I did read in another forum that someone contacted Samsung about the “AllShare Cast Dongle” and the response they got was Samsung had never heard if it!! Mind you I shound not be surprised really ..These are the people that have told everyone the UK version of HDTV Cable works with the Tab 2 10.1 when IT DOES NOT.
But if anyone has any extra info or has got the “AllShare Cast Dongle” or the “HTC Media Link” to work with their Tab 2 please let us know.

Well, it took me a grand total of two days to get into this forum... but in between, I have returned my Galaxy Tab 2.0 10.1 and got a refund
Well, it all started with trying to migrate through the Samsung interface for Customer Support... I always got to the point of entering my Model Number... and that is where the problems began.... as the drop down menu did not work... thus I could not get to any support whatsoever.... thus I relied on external support from various forums..... but the main issue was that the Samsung HDMI adapter that I purchased did NOT work with the Tab 2.0.... Samsung technical support agreed that there was an outstanding issue... that coupled with the really poor picture that the back camera took, as well as some other APP issues, I returned the device (Tab 2) to the retail store and got a refund.... boo hiss.... I was upset... my wife has an iPad, so she got the last laugh..... what a disaster... this product should NOT have been released.... no HDMIT output, camera really poor, no customer support (that I could get to)... and a lack of apps working as they should... thus the return....
Soooo my question to everyone... which Android tablet should I purchase? The ASUS TS700 looks like a nice unit... has a mini HDMI output plus an mini-SD card slot... and the cameral looks great 8MG Pixel back camera for great pictures... but it is a lot of $$$ vs the Samsung... so what are your opinions???? My wife's iPad is great... but there are soooo many roadblocks because it is an Apple product, I really want an Android device.... so am now looking for suggestions..... any help would be greatly appreciated....
SOrry Samsung... I gave you a try, but you failed me miserably...... (the support section was sooooo bad, I cannot even compare it to anything... the drop down menus did not work, and I was unable to converse with a Samsung Tech.... unless the one that I did get in touch of that confirmed that the HDMI adapter would NOT work with the model 5113 Tab 2 I bought.... but he wanted to play around with it a bit to see if he could make it work... WTF? I gave up after about 45 minutes... it was a waste of his time and mine.... there MUST be something better out there for me... what is it???????
As an addendum to my rant about returning my Samsung Tab 2 (Model 5113) today.... I also learned something new from a forum elsewhere... that the micr sd card needed to work well with this device is a class 10 device... now why the heck didn't Samsung tell us that from the start? I had ordered 2 of them, one for my Galaxy Tab and the other for my Galaxy IIIs cell phone... well,I returned both today because (a) I returned my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 AND I was afraid of using the Class 4 for my Galaxy III cell phone.... why is it sooooo hard for Samsung to advise you which one to purchase in the first place? Again, support from Samsung is LACKING!
Since I purchased and returned the Tab 2 10.1, should I even consider the ASUS TF700? At least it has a micro HDMI output port... plus a better camera on the back of it.... but does it measure up to even compete with the IPad or the Samsung Galaxy 2 10.1? Looking for HONEST opinions here.... I am in a free-fall... and need help... I DO NOT want to purchase an iPad... my wife would rub it in for a 100 years.... I want something that will compete with or BEAT an iPad.... HELP???/
