    Hi everybody,

    I want to buy MiPad 2, but I need to be able to connect my tablet to external monitor or TV through hdmi cable. I’ve read in the review that Chris has a problem with that. Had anybody managed to connect their tablet to external monitor? Or its general problem of MiPad 2?

    Bad new for those who want to use cable to connect to HDMI. The user from another forum asked xiaomi support about MHL in mipad 2

    “Please kindly note that Mi Pad 2 only support OTG function with the Type-C cable,
    kindly understand that if you want to use other type cables to connect the Type-C cable, then connect the device, it might not support it.
    Kindly note that Mi Pad 2 doesn’t support MHL function, thank you for your kind understanding and support with us.”

    That’s a shame it won’t output MHL.

    You should be able to connect wirelessly to a monitor/TV via a miracast/chromecast dongle. I have an Mi pad windows  on order and this is what I plan to do. I already have chromecast so simples.

    Has anyone done some more thorough testing to see if it’s really a usb 3.0 connection? If so DisplayLink usb 3.0 docks should work fine…

    First of all, I believe that many adaptors like usb c to hdmi doesn’t work well, I have seen that even an official usb c to hdmi adaptor from Dell doesn’t work on a compatible Dell device. So don’t lose  hope.

    @JoyDee I think that the device manager says : USB 3 drivers , but the speeds are USB2


    @Chris
    can you try this : System Compatibility Check Tool

    http://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/544297-is-my-windows-computer-compatible-with-displaylink

    If it is compatible maybe we can use a usb to hdmi adapter to connect to TV

    @otinanai It passes the check. And when I insert my latest Hub that has a HDMI port on it, Windows says something about improving the USB connection for DisplayLink and this it goes. I guess we have some hope here.

    Also if I turn off the Mi Pad 2 and then insert my hub with power it will power the Mi Pad and let me use the USB 3 port (at usb 2 speeds) The bios is locked down and I can’t see any USB settings. So at least, we have power and USB. If the HDMI could work, that would be awesome.

    <!–more–>The AOSP ROM that I loaded has HDMI Settings.  I don’t have a USB-C HDMI adapter so I can’t test it out.

    My device manager shows USB controllers as Intel (R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller – 1.0 (Microsoft)

    Shouldn’t this mean its USB 3?

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for all of your hard work and contributions to the knowledge base for this product. You mentioned in an earlier post:

    “Also if I turn off the Mi Pad 2 and then insert my hub with power it will power the Mi Pad and let me use the USB 3 port (at usb 2 speeds) The bios is locked down and I can’t see any USB settings. So at least, we have power and USB. If the HDMI could work, that would be awesome.”

    I have need to charge at the same time as using a usb device. I have tried several splitters, etc. and have not had any luck doing both charging and usb io. What hub device are you using?  I assume that you first connect the usb device and charger to the hub, then plug the hub into the mi pad, then power on the tablet. Is this correct?

    Thank you,

    Hal

    Hi Chris

    Have you made any further progress with connecting the Mi Pad 2 to an external monitor via HDMI after the Display Link confirmation? What hub are you using please? I am looking for a USB Type-C hub with powered delivery that will charge my tablet and power external USB devices at the same time.

    Many thanks for your hard work which helped me buy the Mi Pad 2.
