    I wish there was. the HDMI output on the droid is really under-achieved.

    uploadcity

    I've been looking around and found a site that has the "real HDMI" download. "uploadcity" Have you ever heard of them? thay charge a fee (which I don't mind paying) but it's $$ for a year + $$ for them to take away adware + $$ so you can watch cd quality movies $$ so ypu can record cd music, it's fees like this that makes me wonder. anyway do you have a preference, Thank You in advance.

    Iam also looking for a solution to this. i saw somewhere that birdman placed the read hdmi app inside his ROM image. I'm not sure if that really correct though.

    Any alternatives to the real hdmi app? i would like to use my droid to connect to my TV to watch videos online.

    Yeah, I want this too... one of the nice things that distinguish the X and it is limited. :(

    Is AppBucket even legal ? Are the original devs getting reimbursed for applications sold there ?

    Appbucket is largely a collection of pirated apps. They make a good show like they are legit but they dont honor dmca take down notices and are basically stealing money from devs. Version of real hdmi that is up there is a hacked/pirated version.

    Thats what happens when something desirable from a consumer is somehow made artificially unavailable. No different GMAN giving DroidX users something verizon/Motorola artificially crippled.

    GMAN should re-release it and ignore non-droidx users who installed something that said "Droid X users only".

    Appbucket had been pirating my app long before I started doing limited distribution of real hdmi.

    Motorola appears to be getting ready to release the kernel fixes that should fix the "m" freezes on boot which is the same bug that has been causing display to freeze when hdmi is disabled. When they get the patches released will put app back on the market for good.

    Motorola never really crippled anything. The fact is that android 2.x inability to handle dual displays natively and the omap processor inability to drive dual displays at the same time made motorola make a choice in what functionality would work for the largest audience. As most people know the usability of " hdmi on" all the time can be challenging and not always user friendly. The limitations in the hardware and os meant that the platform would never really ever support hdmi like we would all like it to no matter what motorola would have decided to do once omap processor was chosen. Real hdmi is just my attempt to do the best we can with the hardware and os we have.

    Just so I understand more fully - is that why you when you output via HDMI you can't see what is happening on the phone screen at the same time ?

    Any suggestions as to how to make it easier to figure out where you are on the screen when using Real HDMI ? I always have to sort of "guess" where I am on the screen (sometimes I guess correctly and sometimes not LOL).

    The key to being able to handle the "screen freeze" is to understand how to set the app up so that the tilt function is operational. Once you get it working, using the app is a breeze.

    In a nutshell, you can set the app up so that once it's connected to your video display and enabled you can flip the phone over so the display is facing the floor and it will toggle the display back to the phone. Then, you flip the phone back over, hit the "Home" key, pull up whatever video app you want to use, start the video and flip the phone back over so the display is facing the floor. This toggles the display back to your video display.

    Initially, I was quite frustrated with the app....trying to figure out how to hit a "phantom" point on the screen to start an app or video. Now it's a no-brainer.

    BTW...I have the Slingplayer app on my X and it plays on my 55" screen nicely. It doesn't fill the screen but it's about 75%.

    Another nice feature....I don't have Direct TV but I have the NFL app. If a Thursday game ever comes on that I want to see, I can fire up the NFL app (pay the 1-day VZAcess charge...GRRRRR) and watch the game on my 55" flat-panel.....sweet!!!

    I know this is a common question, but on November 26th 2010, where can I get this app? I cannot find it anywhere. Lot of discussions and what-not but no where to download. I don't mind testing a beta app but how do I get ahold of it?
