HDMI to mini HDMI???

Mon Dec 21, 2015 8:13 pm

Are you able to connect a HDMI from the raspberry pi to a tablet through a HDMI to a mini HDMI cable?? I have an old tablet that I don't use if it is even possible...

The tablet has HDMI out, the RPi has HDMI out. Your TV has HDMI in. You can only connect ins to outs. Connecting outs to outs is useless.

It's not possible in that way, but maybe you can use USB tethering and vnc to view your pi on your tablet. ;)
