The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 records videos and takes pictures, but it's tough to share your content with others on a small screen. You can entertain your family, friends and guests by connecting your Tab to a high-definition TV. To make the connection, you'll need to hook your device to the Galaxy Tab HDTV adapter. The device works with any TV that has an HDMI port. Only the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 2 supports the adapter, however. The adapter doesn't work with the 7-inch version of the tablet, because it does not support HDMI output.

Step 1

Connect one end of an HDMI cable to the Samsung Galaxy Tab HDTV adapter.

Step 2

Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to a free HDMI port on your television.

Step 3

Connect your Galaxy Tab's travel charger to the other end of the HDTV adapter. Plug the travel charger into a power source, such as an electrical outlet or a computer's USB port.

Step 4

Plug the HDTV adapter connector into the Galaxy Tab's "Power/Accessory Interface" port. The port is on the bottom of the device.

Step 5

Turn on the TV. If your TV has multiple HDMI ports, use the remote control to switch to the correct one. Press the "Source" or "Input" button on the remote to switch ports. When you're using the correct port, the TV will instantly display whatever is on the Tab's screen.
