How can I connect my Samsung Galaxy Tab A using a HDMI cable to my Tv

Most of the Galaxy Tab A models do not support an MHL signal with an adapter between the micro-USB port to HDMI port. To connect it to a TV, you'd need a Chromecast or similar device connected to the HDMI port of the TV. Then connect your tablet to the Chromecast for screen-sharing. For some TVs with wi-fi, you can use the All-Share app instead.

This is the case for the Galaxy Tab A (2016) 10.1" model. I don't see any Galaxy Tab A devices with MHL support here: http://www.mhltech.org/devices.aspx . Samsung stopped providing the MHL connections on most of the devices by 2015, depending on the country where the device was sold. See http://blog.clove.co.uk/2014/02/05/mhl-adapter-samsung-galaxy-need/ . To check your device, look at the micro-USB port, if it has 11 pins then it might support MHL.

I wish that I had better news for you. Please add a comment with the generation/year of production for your Galaxy Tab A for further information about the specifications.

need to transfer music files and pictures from my apple computer to samsung galaxy tab, how to do it?

Try connecting the Galaxy to your computer with the included USB cable. Then, select the notification (open the notification drawer by pulling down on the status bar) that says USB cable connected and follow the steps to mount your SD Card. At this point, the Tab should appear as a device/driver in Finder. If not, try connecting them to the same network and try something like On Air from the Market to connect over-the-air.
Since you are using an Android, you don't have to use anything like iTunes to transfer music and pictures. Simply copy them onto a folder on the SD card and then browse to them on the Tab using My Files and open them in whatever app you use. If you would prefer a proper syncing arrangement, try the free DoubleTwist app and corresponding Mac application to connect your device.
