Yes that is what it says

Today, MHL is primarily thought of as an "accessory" because it often requires an adaptor that converts the cable to HDMI. The reason is that most flat panel TVs does not support MHL and therefore the cable has to be converted to HDMI in order to connect it to the TV.Aug 1, 2012

Does my metropcs samsung galaxy avant have mhl

Samsung Galaxy Avant: MHL:

Hello. Yes, MHL is available for all Galaxy family devices. You just need to obtain one that is compatible with your phone.

here's the Official one:
MHL 2 0 HDTV Smart Adapter

Note: You will need your charging cable and wall charging adapter. Plug power into the MHL and plug MHL into micro USB port on Galaxy Avant.

This MHL adapter can be used by the listed newer phones directly without a power adapter to show pictures on to your TV screen. It is not recommended to use without plugging in the power cable (that is plugged into the wall charger) if you are going to use the MHL for streaming video or for gaming, because those are power hungry and will deplete your battery within 2 hours or less. Connecting power charges the MHL as well as your device. Make sure your charging cable and wall charger are OEM, else they could just trickle charge your device instead of actually charging it. (some aftermarket chargers are 3V. Samsung's are 5V for the more power hungry Smartphones.)

You may need to turn airplane mode on

on some Galaxy Smartphones it is:
(my Note 4 on Android 5.1.1 is like this)
Settings>Connections>Airplane Mode

On your phone I believe it is:
(depends on the Android firmware version)
Settings>Under section: Wireless & Networks: Select More Settings>then check box for Flight Mode

*** Important ***
if you are trying to connect to the internet to stream to your TV, and Airplane/Flight mode turns off your WiFi, just turn it back on (airplane/flight mode will remain on) ~ some phones do this, some do not, this is carrier specific.. meaning the cellular provider requested the phone to auto do this for some reason

Is LN40C630K1F samsung tv compatible with MHL? If not how do i get my phone mirrored on my TV, is there a way?

The Samsung LN40C630K1F is not MHL compatible. The HDMI port on the TV doesn't understand the signal from the tablet directly. You need an MHL to HDMI adapter: , instead of an MHL to HDMI cable. Be sure to make sure that the adapter is compatible with your phone. (Not all adapters work with all makes/models.)

I hope this helps.

I am trying to connect my Samsung galaxy S4 phone to my Phillips smart TV 55pfl4909 with mhl to HDMI wires, but it's not working. I've watched videos on you tube & its suppose to be simple but mine is not...

The problem with MHL to HDMI is that there are two versions.

a 9 pin and a 11 pin.
Samsung S3 and below use 9 pin and S4/Note3/etc and up use the 11 pin.

Not all samsung use MHL but the S4 does.

Make sure you have the right MHL cable for your device.

I have encountered this problem personally and have bought a universal cable which covers both versions.

My brother has a Sony and also had wrong cable.
Now it works fine with correct cable.
