    I was looking for the Real Hdmi app, but its not on the market. Is there any other way to actually use the HDMI input, or does anybody know where I can get the app?

    It is actually an output... and you can use it from the gallery. When attached to a television, and with the gallery active there is an icon. You click that icon and your photo's or videos that were recorded on your phone now are on your TV.

    I want to be able to use the output on my phone as a monitor for movies and stuff. Not just photos I have saved.

    You can, but only video's you recorded with the phone camcorder APP (anyway with the native HDMI function).

    Wow, the stuff people came up with.
    I pulled it from the market because there is a critical display bug in the droidx since the 2.2 ota update which I have documented on the motorola forums:
    https://supportforums.motorola.com/thread/38053
    Any use of the hdmi port on the droidx after the update runs the risk of freezing up the phone and requiring the user to pull the battery. Doesn't matter if you are just using the gallery app our my real hdmi program.
    Am working with motorola to help them duplicate the bug so they can fix it. Its a bug in the phones linux kernel that can't new worked around. Which is discussed in the thread someone had linked in a message farther up the thread.

    I was so excited about this Froyo update thinking that HDMI meant true HDMI, and that I would be able to plug my phone into my HDTV and watch youtube videos or any video using the web browser. how disappointed I was to discover that you could only watch home-made videos through the gallery.

    I'm still pleased with some other updates with the new OS, especially the overall better battery performance, but was totally disillusioned with the HDMI.
