  2. My MHL Adapter starts (S3 to HD TV) to cause static and intermittent annoying shutdowns after about a half hr of streaming from Netflix or Redbox. Movies become unwatchable.
    Static appears to be caused by background services on the S3 such as sync processes, upgrades, etc. I used the supplied MHL-HDMI adapter on my older Samsung Infusion Cellphone for months, - never had problems. The S3 uses a newer compatible adapter but IT DOES NOT WORK.
    Based on Samsung tech support I used a newer 1.0 amp or better P/S but it makes no difference. If U have to buy one - don't waste your money. (Any suggestions on correcting this frustrating problem?)
