This would good watching videos, youtube, picture gallery and surfing the web. Is this possible? Is there a cord that attaches the two together?

Not a great solution, but it might work
$50 PSP on TV | PSP2TV | PSP TV Adapter
Basically a camera that records the screen and sends it directly to the TV
Not sure that the 3.5mm jack supports video play. So that would mean using your computer as a bridge, so you'd be better of just using your computer alone. Numerous routes (I use a combination of HDMI cable and streaming to my 360).
This is one of those things I just don't get.... I have a laptop and a computer that have a) much more memory b) faster connections to the network/tv c) higher playback capability (the droid is not like the ZuneHD, it really isn't meant for HD playback and d) unlimited power (they stay plugged in). Could probably think of a few more but, why would I want to play video from my Droid through my TV?? And even if I did my droid is ftp on my wi-fi network so I can just pull the video directly to one of my computers oh, e) support far more video/file extensions and sizes.
Just my $.02, hope you find something that meets your needs (the ZuneHD is great, but I rarely even use it for the same reasons above).
Using TV-out on a device such as the Droid, or a Zune/iPod/iPhone etc provides you with the benefit of watching a movie with friends when you are visiting or something like that. You always have your phone with you, and by having a cable of some sorts in your pocket, it's just like dragging your laptop over to watch a movie, but more convenient. Of course it doesnt last for a full movie night, but it still works.
Or its a quick way to show off the pics you took during x-mas for your grandparants or something.
The PSP thing I brought up defeats that purpose. Unless you use the thing as a jockstrap, I doubt it's too convenient to carry around with you all the time just in case you need to show something off of your phone.
As for the playing of video, that's what I thought when I bought the ZuneHD but in practice... it just doesn't work (for me). I don't particularly care to spend hours on end riping my DVDs or converting my d/l content into a small enough file to put on the Droid (even with a larger 32G SD card it would fill up way to quick with decent video, my 30G ZHD did, very quickly, now it is audio only...). I keep my laptop ready to go if I know I'm going somewhere where we may want to watch videos or something, but that's me.
Properly converted videos are great for on the go viewing with the Droid. But a home media server it is not.
I can't think of any reason to use it over a laptop if given the choice between the two for the purposes described in this thread.
