    I am curious, are the HDMI ports on most tablets standard size? I have heard about a mini version but not sure.

    I bought an apad 710 and am wondering if the standard cord will work?

    I think most of them come with the Type C HDMI Mini jack (takes a plug 10.42 mm × 2.42 mm). There is also an even smaller Type D jack, but I haven't personally seen it on anything. My M701-R came with a cable with a Type C mini plug on on one end and a regular Type A HDMI plug on the other.

    Looks like the cable that came with my Haipad. Based on photos I've seen of the Apad 710 the small plug looks correct. If you know what TV you'll be connecting it to just verify that it is using that Type A connector (it probably is, Type B is uncommon, so that cable should work with most HDTVs that have HDMI ports).

    Did you make sure to switch inputs to the HDMI you are plugged into?

    Just plugging the cable in doesn't automatically switch it to HDMI output. You need to go into the "Settings" for "Display" and change the output to HDMI. There should be another setting as well for the HDMI resolution. It is typical for the tablet's screen to go blank while playing videos through HDMI output.

    When it comes time to switch back you'd be looking to set the output to "None" (not "Composite" if it is in your list of options).
