1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Took pics and video and thought it would be simple PnP to TV. Not quite. First - only your user-generated media can be displayed on your TV. Port a digital copy of a movie to your device - and you can watch the movie from Droid X to TV. Pictures and video you take on the device are also fair game for TV Presentation. Streaming from Blockbuster online or NBC-TV websites...not so much.
    Now.. the TV I have is a Panasonic 50" plasma with 3 HDMI outputs (Model # TC-P50G10). On the Droid X > Home > Settings > HDMI > HDMI Format. Change the output from 720P @50HZ to 720P@60. Make sure the cable is firmly plugged in... the correct HDMI input is selected on the TV. Access your media from the Gallery. After you select a video or photo, you will see the special UI for media playback.
    Good luck!

    Oh, I thought this was a solution to get it to work with something other than the default player.

    I hooked mine up to my Onkyo receiver and left it on auto and it worked fine (with my various properly encoded videos). I tried some other settings and they seemed to work too, like 480p and also 720p @60, which seemed to be the same as Auto for me, as it should be. It overscans, so I was trying to get it to not do that - I figured 480p might, but it didn't.

    It works better than I expected, though I really don't have a use for it. I think its best use might be for the ability to take videos with the phone and watch them easily, anywhere.
