    Ok so I know there are some video that doesn't play HDMI out. And some that do.

    So I need a checklist for what I need to play anything on my TV at home. Is there an app that puts my dx on my TV that I need to download? I know I need the cord, but if I want to watch a movie, play a YouTube clip or even check my Facebook on my TV....what do I need?

    Whatever your phone supports, it will be able to play on the tv. As for the apps, you can download a free app called "Xternal Display for Droid X", or a paid app "RealHDMI" if you're on Gingerbread.

    hdmi to HDTV works fine, not clear picture though

    just got the droid charge, plugged in hdmi to HDTV, works great. I can watch veetle and youtube videos. HOWEVER, the picture on the HDTV is lesser quality than if I just hdmi from my laptop to HDTV. It's almost as if the great HD picture quality on the Droid Charge is simply enlarged on my HDTV so that you actually see the pixels. It is a 58" HDTV, maybe that's why. But still, my laptop sends a great HD picture to the HDTV.
    I thought maybe by using youtube (browser mode), instead of (youtube mode) it would show 720p resolution on my HDTV. But it doesn't achieve 720p (or like it) on my HDTV.
    Anyone have anything?

    tried Dolphin Browser HD for HDMI pixellation problem

    didn't work. Same pixellation problem. Does the Dolphin browser have any setting for HDMI output? Or, is there a way to make the droid charge mimic a desktop computer in sending 720p or 1080p video to my HDTV. The problem seems to be that the Droid Charge does not have any settings that you can change for the resolution of the HDMI output. At least, if it does, I can't find the screen that gives me HDMI options. HD video looks awesome on the droid charge, but terrible on my HDTV when send via HDMI cable. The cable is a high quality Belkin cable.
    I've read other forums for other phones that the problem was solved simply by changing HDMI video output settings to 720p 60mhz(or hz?). I can't find where I can do this on the Droid Charge.

    I'm not sure about the charge but on my X if I go to Menu> Settings> HDMI there is an option to change the HDMI format.

    hdmi out settings don't exist on charge

    i know. I've read that about other phones. The charge does not have anything under settings referring to HDMI. It seems that I CANNOT CHANGE the HDMI OUT settings.
