What connector cable for Tab A 10.1 to HDMI TV port?

I'd like to be able to physically connect my Galaxy Tab A 10.1 from the mini usb port to the HDMI port on my Samsung Smart TV and I just recently found that the Tab A 10.1 does not have MHL support (which I was glad to know just before ordering a usb-c to hdmi cable from eBay ... I also found out the 11-pin usb-c is not the same as the 5-pin mini usb).

Would it still work if I got a mini usb to usb-c adapter (5-pin to 11-pin)and used that with a usb-c to hdmi cable? Would I be able to access tablet content (photos, videos, web browsing etc) or is there a data bottleneck with the 5-pin usb port on the tablet? I've tried using the mini-usb to usb to the TV usb port but the TV doesn't recognize the tablet (though I can insert a thumbdrive to the TV and it can access the photos and videos on the thumbdrive). Would this still be the case if I used the mini-usb>usb-c adapter to usb-c>hdmi cable?

I currently stream from my tablet with screen mirroring (with Smart View and SmartThings apps)to my Smart TV, so maybe it's a "then why bother?" thing. I just like to have as many options as possible, I guess...

Thanks,
HGGuy
