I wish I could answer all question here about MHL connectivity. This is a very cheap alternative from portable device to TV.

90% percent the answer would be no.

It's a hit or miss. When it comes to MHL connection is very bad because it is not standardize. You will have a better luck on Google's ChromeCast or Amazon Fire TV or Apple TV or Roku. I'll give you a hint - From a Samsung cable to Samsung device to a Samsung TV wouldn't even work properly. What more with a different manufacturer.

You may need to use the 11pin Samsung adapter. Contact Samsung for what setting changes are necessary for the Phone to output through the MHL connection.

Apple TV.
All you need from your TV is HDMI connection in. The wireless connection would between your router and Apple TV device then via HDMI cable to your TV.

Not all phones / tablets are MHL capable. Also try using the plugging your phone in with the extra small connecting thing and without it. Because that small thing is supposed to be the gateway to using older devices and newer ones.
Also make sure your TV or DVD play doesn't have a spcific HDMI port for MHL

You may need to contact your Phone Manufacturer for how to enable the Display Out settings. Also, make sure to connect your USB charging cable to the MHL adapter to supply power.

I bought this for the Note 8.0 GT-N5110 and I can't seem to get it to work. The tv is an LG and the HDMI port says HDMI/MHL. I've tried different chargers and multiple restarts. Does this adapter work with the note 8?

I leave this for last: Try the Samsung MHL 2.0 cable it is $50 or more. Try other internet stores for cheaper price.

You will need to check with your phone manufacturer to verify their phone supports MHL, and what steps are necessary to enable MHL output to send from the phone to the tv.
