Is the HDMI output useless? What if I wanted to play a youtube video or some other live stream video on my tv? Can it be done?
i was looking forward to hdmi input rather than output, so i can use my DSLR to take some photos and view them on the X but it cant be done
output...ummmm. useless? no. but i think you have to have the files in your gallery? so youtube wouldnt work unless you download the files onto your card. dont quote me
A Rep at my local store said he thought the HDMI Output was for Gallery Only, Vids and Pics and that sort. You wouldn't be able to use ur tv like a Monitor for surfing.
Any owners have input?
So how about the blockbuster application or one of the movie sites? Wow, that is a huge blow if you can't download and hook the Droid to a tv and watch it. the I-phone can. Yikes!
I have not done much testing but from what I have seen in the 5 min I played with it psychre is correct.
TV said I didn't have signal until I went into the gallery. Everything in the gallery ran on the TV just fine. I have not tried the blockbuster but have wondered about it myself.
It makes only logical sense that the droid X is in reality more "Plug and Play" than the iPhone.
