Help Video out??


Jan 19, 2011
Just got the Motorola One 5G Ace, trying to figure it out.

I live remotely, no wifi in the house. I used my old phone to watch Netflix but then found I could hook the phone up to my (dumb) TV with a HDMI-to-phone adapter cord. It worked great.

Well, I've tried the same with the Moto One Ace and it doesn't work at all. I've search online and think I have all the phone settings correct.

Is there an app I need to install to (re)direct the video output? Does anyone have any insights or advice? Is anyone else able to hook this phone diectly to a TV and mirror their screen? I have no wifi so cannot cast. I don't have sufficient data to set up a hotspot on my phone and then use my laptop (connected to my TV) to watch movies.
