    Wondering if there is a cable that is sold to hook up the droid to a tv. In essence be able to use it as a movie player and send the signal to the tv for video and audio. We could install movies on our droid and simply view them tru our tv. Is there such an animal.

    Unfortunately, that is something that the Droid does not do.

    VZW has a few Windows Mobile devices that do this (HTC Diamond, Touch Pro, Touch pro 2, and I think the Omnia II might as well, need to check the manual on that. Cable is extra of course).

    could it be something than an app could accomplish. I was thinking micro usb to rca cables. But wasn't sure if the usb port on the phone could even send out sound or video. Maybe something the developers could tackle.

    That's an excellent question that pops up in many threads here.

    USB to Win 7 computer, via Media Center to your Xbox 360 to your TV

    :icon_eek:


    OK, I don't really know if that works, but it sounds good.

    I could try the droid connected to my laptop with an HDMI connection to the TV and see if that works, I know the rumors of future android phones have mentioned hdmi's, but it's not something I'd jump and scream for lol.

    Some company has shown a projector small enough to fit inside current mobile phones. We should see them by the end of the year.

    I need to find my cables, but my Ipod Video - 3 years old now had a cable that plugged into the audio jack at the top and then split a video and audio cable out the other end to hook to the tv. I used it to replay football videos on various tv sets at school for my football team.

    Not sure of the details of how Apple and the Ipod did this, but would think an app could handle the coversion and kick out the data in a similar way.

    Will let you know when I find those cables.

    No need for an app for the PS3. Just connect your Droid to the PS3 via usb cable and mount it. Then on the PS3 open the files and select the movies. They play just fine. Except it isn't as good qualilty as Blu-ray lol.

    Before you get too proud about proving someone wrong, you need to understand the solution you described. You didn't find a way to send a video signal out of any cable attached to your Droid. You simply found a way to share your files with another device that CAN send a video signal to your TV. That's like saying you can make your car go 400 mph, but to do it, you load it on a cargo jet. It's not the same. Referring back to the OP's original question. As of right now, no one has described any way to stream a video feed from your Droid to a TV.

    It is a way to view videos from your Droid on a TV, but only if you have an XBox or PS3 involved to do the actual video streaming.

    Alright first of all this is between me and johny depth and second of all there's not much of a difference between the cable or the xbox/ps3, the cable will transmit the video to the tv. And what is the xbox/ps3 goin to do uuuuummmmmmmm let me think I think its goin to do the same thing. And yes u can only do it if u have an xbox or ps3 but the same thing if there was a cable you would need the cable! So please keep demonstrations to ur self

    You are a moron. I'm not going to waste time explaining why because you've already shown you are too incompetent to understand.
