    I was just screwing around trying to see if I get it to work..... and just for a brief moment I got a flash on the TV of my phone's screen (at the time I was looking through through the files on the SD card.

    It was just there for a moment but obviously it means the phone is capable of doing this. Maybe someone will figure out a way to get through this.

    I was told you could not watch your movies through the hdmi out.. I saw in the book it says "user generated content" which would be movies you recorded with the camcorder app right? But a couple people say they put there own ripped dvd through the tv out??? Can a few more people verify this please????????

    I'm almost certain I had read that you could not do an output of 720P. That would be what the HDMI out would do.

    Was it that you can't record in 720P?

    you can record high def (720p) and you can use the hdmi out for what the book calls "user generated content" but people are saying they are streaming movies from the sd card through the hdmi out to the tv and this is what I want to do. I just want to make sure its true so hopefully someone will test this more and verify.

    You can output movies via HDMI that you rip or download and put on the sdcard, just not movies through apps like Blockbuster.

    I have transferred a movie (avi file) from my computer to the phone. I can watch it on the phone but I get no video output from the HDMI cable (the cable is fine as I get output when I play video taken on the phone).

    So I ask again since you are saying it works for you.....are you putting the file in a particular folder? or do you think it may matter what type of file you use?

    you can 100% place mp4 video on the droid X and play it via HDMI out provided it is not DRM-protected content

    I am currently streaming an AVI file I downloaded through HDMI to my tv. All I did was sync the video to the X via WMP. It looks beautiful.

    it wont let you play copyright material through the hdmi out but ive had the dx about a week before the launch and ive been able to play movies that ive put on the sd card (ones ive downloaded ) but i havnt tried the movies from the blockbuster app because i think copyrights have nothing to do with what size screen i use to watch the movie and besides if im restricted to only watching them on the dx then they should lower the price
