I want to use an Android APP in a public Park where no WIFI is available. Then I want to display the output on a monitor, using it sort of like a scoreboard. I purchased a Lenovo TB-X606 to run the APP thinking I would connect it to the monitor via a HDMI cable. First, I was told I would need a USB-c to HDMI adapter. I bought one only to be told later by Lenovo that the tablet did not output a video signal to the USB-c port. The port is only used for charging. Now Lenovo say's they do not sell a tablet with a video output port. They say "maybe a chromebook would work. But I can't find any spec.s for a chromebook that say it has a video output port.
Help? What do I need?
Greetings. Sorry for the delay in response.
Not every Android tablet will support a video output without the use of an internet connection. It appears that specific model of tablet does not support this, it would need a device like a Chromecast to connect to and an internet connection for that model to work. A lot of Android tablets will be like that.
A tablet such as https://www.microcenter.com/product/630087/samsung-tab-s7-mystic-black should work with a https://www.microcenter.com/product/436679/cirago-mhl-to-hdmi-active-cable-3-ft-black to get that connected.
