Maxis10: Samsung Galaxy S TV-Out Feature

This post has been viewed 18251 times since Thursday 8 July 2010 @ 11:02 am

I’ve uploaded a short video in Youtube showing you how to use the TV-Out feature of Samsung Galaxy S. By using TV-Out, the image you see on the phone will be displayed on the TV. This makes the TV-Out feature comes in handy in several occasions, such as :-

  • Sharing with your friends and family the pictures and videos you’ve captured.
  • Playing songs through the TV with better sound quality.
  • Slide-show presentation
  • Playing movies on the hotel TV when you are traveling
  • Playing games on a larger display if you think the 4″ AMOLED screen is too small. :)
  • Many more…

To enable TV-Out, go to Applications > Settings > Sound and display > TV out. By the way, the TV system in Malaysia is PAL.

When TV-Out is enabled, the sound will come out from the TV speaker making watching movie using Samsung Galaxy S a different experience.

Hope you like this video.

    Mine doesn’t work at all.
    Got sound but the only image I get is text saying “TV-out not supported while application running. Phone display only”

    I’ve search everywhere. I even called Samsung’s customer service. They had no clue what I was talking about.

    Steps I did:
    – Go to settings.
    – Enable the TV-out
    – Plug in the cable
    – Sound works, image no, got the text above. That’s it.

    I have Samsung Galaxy S Captivate, with Android 2.1

    You gotta get a TV-Out cable that is for mobile phone. Normal TV-Out cable will only give you sound and no display like how you describe.

    I was using the cable from my Nokia N900 box. I believe you can get this cable from any Nokia sale center. :)

    Good luck!

    This doesn’t make much sense to me… The text I’m seeing comes from my phone, so obviously, the cable work… no ?

    Another thing… what is different in your cable that makes the image show up ? (And please, don’t tell me it’s the color lol)

    And finally, the message I get on my TV specifies something about an application running… Wouldn’t it make more sense if it told me “You have the wrong cable”…?

    Your take please.

    A few of my friends who are using Galaxy S face the same TV-Out problem. I personally tested a few TV-Out cables at different electrical shops and can conclude that the normal TV-Out cable is not compatible with the TV-Out feature of Galaxy S. We need a TV-Out cable that is for mobile phone. My Nokia N900 has the TV-Out cable in the box but too bad Galaxy S doesn’t have it.

    It could be the difference in wiring. Of course I don’t mean the color is different. LoL
