    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:

    Right you are; that is how they phrased it in feature lists, "HDMI OUT".

    I just hope someone comes up with an app or so that allows you to forgo only using gallery for the hdmi out so you can use your phone for more than just a video player or photo viewer on screen....be nice to output like powerpoint or other documents if needed

    So many potential uses . . I wonder why they would cripple such a groundbreaking phone feature.
