    I have been searching everywhere to see if a Droid X can be run as a video monitor, (reversed from how most would use the HDMI port). I just want to display from an HDMI source i.e. HD camera HDMI output - to the Droid X that's it.... no apps that I see can do this. Is the phone capable of doing this?

    Thanks to all those smarter than I!

    I wouldn't think so since the port is for HDMI output.

    I can appreciate that it is an output, but there has to be some method of sending video to the device to use it as a monitor.... USB is two way communication. Anyone seen a pin-out from HDMI to USB? This could be a remarkable application of use of the X for those of us in the video world.
