    I do not have a Charge, but was wondering how the HDMI to TV Mirroring works. Does it show your phones desktop on a TV for the most part. Can you watch videos through the web browser, outputted to the TV in high def? How much is the HDMI cable for this?

    Sweet. I wish my thunderbolt did that. Ah well that's what you get for drinking at 10am on st pats and wanting a 4g phone ;) I'm happy with it and I can just stream video with it but having an hdmi out sure would be nice in a remote location.

    Really? I asked this questions to the verizon rep and he said the hdmi port only plays video from the media player, not whatever your phone displays.

    have you tried it yet with your phone? Is it rooted? Does root make a difference?

    Reps dont know what they are talking about most of the time and this is one of them. I think they are steering you in the wrong direction, it does mirror whatever is on your device.

    hmmm

    I know some of the other phones will only play media on your sd card and now live streaming stuff. The only phone that I have seen that can do what you are talking about is, the x with the real hdmi app, and that even that app was kinda flakey

    To put this to rest here is evidence directly from Droid Life:

    HDMI mirroring
    : The Charge has full HDMI mirroring and it definitely works well. Plug in your device, switch your TV over and BAM! In seconds you are up and running your device on your big ol’ screen TV.

    Here is the original review of the phone with this section in it:

    I thought I would add to this.

    I have a Droid Charge (unrooted) and a HDMI cable. When I plug the HDMI in to the Charge, it produces a dual display that is identical to the phones. Whatever I see on the phone, I see on the TV. I watched an episode of Family Guy through TV Shows Stream and I played a few games of Angy Birds.

    Also, when the phone is in portrait mode, it displays as portrait mode centered on the TV; so there are big black edges on either side. When in landscape, the phone fills my TV completely in a 16:9 aspect ratio.

    For this reason alone, I love my D-Charge. :D

    I just read that it won't stream movies from the Samsung Media Hub (or whatever it's called) b/c of DRM issues. Is this true or is it really, truly, 110% mirroring?
