    HDMI out

    So I bought an HDMI cable from Amazon, connected it, but I don't get display or sound. Am I supposed to do something to the phone? I rebooted and it was still the same. I'm using SteelDroid ROM and the cable I bought was this: Amazon.com: Fosmon HDMI to Micro HDMI Cable (6 Feet): Electronics I don't know if I needed a certain type of cable or what. Someone help me with this please

    I have a strong hunch your cable is fine. I was disgusted to see that HBOGo doesn't work. I also see that a bunch of apps will display on my Panasonic TV, but most with no sound (several games work). At the moment, the best I can get is plugging the HDMI into a 25" LCD monitor, and I consistently get video+sound on that. So it appears that HDMI is quite picky.

    There is already a bit of discussion around on this question, most of it focusing on going into your TV settings, and playing with the HDMI-in options.

    Some ROMs don't have the hdmi feature. It is a function of the Motorola hardware, and is built into motoblur, but may not be in your rom. Especially if it is a port. Not familiar with yours though.

    Steel DROID doesn't have functioning HDMI. Only MOTOBLUR ROMs.

    I'll bet there's some kind of DRM bulls**t involved here, especially with the premium content.
    Galaxy Nexus: CyanogenMod 9-rc0 with Franco's Milestone 4 kernel @ 1.344 GHz
    OG Droid: CyanogenMod 7.1.0 (2.3.7) with Chevy's 1.1GHz uLV kernel, BP7X battery
    Nook Color: CyanogenMod 7.1.0, 1.2GHz kernel

    Try a different ROM. And your sister must be on a Blur based ROM for it to work with her X also. Its a Moto thing

    I've been using a standard HDMI cable with my D3 and it works fine. Immediately shows the D3 "desktop" and plays movies with crystal clarity and audio. The only thing is that I have not rooted my D3. My cable is the GTMax 15FT Micro-HDMI to HDMI Cable (Black/Red) So, I'd imagine it is not your cable.

    I found out the problem. Steel Droid has the DLNA app debloated, and apparently that handles the HDMI out. I flashed the app into the ROM and now the HDMI out works perfectly.

    Is there a way to get this working on cyanogen 9?

    Just loaded my droid 3 with the latest build, no HDMI output. Anyone figured this out?

    Thanks.
