I am using a Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9. I would like to mirror the screen on my TV but I could not find TV-out in the Settings.

How can I do this?

You'll need to get one of Samsung's HDMI adapters. The Tab 7 Plus, 8.9 and 10.1 don't support the old RCA adapter, to my knowledge. The page for the adapter also has a search bar where you can enter your specific device's model number to ensure that it will be compatible.

At that point, I believe it works like other Honeycomb tablets in that it will simply mirror to the TV automatically after being plugged in.

My parents' TV does not have HDMI. So screaming to their TV. So it is impossible to have the image from Tablet with Composite cable with 8.9. –  Masi Jan 28 '12 at 11:37
@Masi: Unfortunately, no, I don't think the 8.9 supports composite output natively. The best you could probably do is to get an HDMI to RCA/S-Video converter, but the video image may very well get distorted (I know Amazon sells some but have never tried them). –  user981 Jan 28 '12 at 18:26
