Hi all, my intent is to play internet tv from my HP Slate7. The Hp website says the Slate has "1 charger/micro USB connector". In order to connect the tablet To the TV what kind of cable will I need? The TV has one HDMI input and also has the red and blue composite type inputs. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Rick

Hi Rick, assuming the TV is within WiFi range, I'd suggest you look into Chromecast. Plug the Chromecast unit into the TV HDMI port, install the free Chromecast app on your tablet and you won't need any cable at all. I'm using it myself in place of the 25' HDMI cable I used to run across the family room from my laptop to the TV.

Spider thanks for the heads up. Bought a Chromecast and t works great for enabled sites. On a site that was not enabled the video was slow and kind of jerky. Thanks again
