Default How do I stream from my tablet to my TV?

Absolute beginner when it comes to having a TV while camping. What do I need to connect my Fire HD8 Android tablet to my TV?

AFIK, you need a smart TV with a wireless connection or a direct network connection, which you likely do not have depending on the age of your RV. If you have an HDMI connection as a spare input to your TV, you may get by with a direct input from that Fire module that looks like a thumb drive or similar...

Others on this forum may have more direct and helpful experience in this...

Good morning,
If your tablet has a usb-c port, you can hook it directly to your tv using a usb-c to hdmi cable. I use that setup with my chromebook and Ipad, works great also works with some cell phones that have usb-c as well. You can find them on amazon or even at everyones favorite store walmart lol. Have a blessed day..

I just recently went to Best Buy and talked to their tech savvy clerks. He made sure I had everything I needed an NOT what I "thought" I needed. I took my tablet in with me. I had to buy Apple Brand cable with lightening connector. Nice part is they have these cables in stock. Works well too.
