    Blockbuster app will enable you to download movies to your device which in turn transfers over to watching it on your TV if you so choose.

    You can store your collection of movies on a SD card. With HDMI out, I can take a fairly decent sized catalog of movies and shows with me in my pocket. Visiting family or staying at a hotel, I will always be able to watch movies (as long as the tv has an HDMI port). That's one of the features that I am looking forward to the most.

    it has a DLNA app which means it can stream videos over your home network. Would be nice to display those to the TV.

    i believe the user guide stats that you can only play USER GENERATED content (e.g. pictures, videos) from the hdmi out. Thus, i dont think the X will let you play downloaded movies etc..

    I really wish the hdmi out would display everything on the phone. I have hdmi out on my laptop and it displays everything that is done on it. Too bad its not the same for phones. Any way to get this implemented I wonder?

    I rip my DVD, transfer to my SD card, i can play it on Droid X and HDMI out to TV no problem. The movies look great on the TV.

    Anything that is in the Galery, playback no issue through HDMI. Now, I need to find the right setting for the conversion, well that is another topic.

    I haven't been able to do this? Did you put the movie in a particular folder? What format was the file? I had to download another player to watch an AVI file on the phone.

    I thought this process would work for movies one owns, but my understanding is that the Blockbuster downloads are not viewable through the HDMI out to TV. (I haven't bought X yet; I'm learning about all the bugs first from you all first - thanx!)

    Yes, it is for movies that I own.

    My format is mostly MP4, but I have a 720p file is M4v from my buddy.

    I was told that blockbuster cannot play due to copyright issue? But someone said in the forum somewhere that youtube and others should be able to play through HDMI with Froyo update.

    I too believe this hdmi out functionality will improve over time. Mot probably try to rush out this phone to compete against iPhone 4 and did not have time to cover all functionality. Give them more time and I am sure it will only get better. Apple did the same thing for some of their functionality. Didn't they take 3 year to get Multi-task to work?? LOL.

    It was made pretty clear for the get go that HDMI was for in, not out. We havent reached the point of watching a moving on our 42" screed via HDMI and the Droid.

    If some of you bought the Droid thinking this then I'm afraid you are in for a big let down.

    They were thinking about the frequent flyer corporate head honchos who would be staying at the Hilton and plug the HDMI into the 50" TV to watch Blockbuster movies:r_c:
