    Hello!!

    Welp I got this adapter for my Rezound, it works great! Im very sure it will work with the Nexus(since it works with the GS2 aswell).

    For only $11.90 each when QTY 50+ purchased - Micro USB to HDMI MHL Adapter - Black | MHL Adapters


    Cant beat $14 for it! better then paying 50 for an HDMI thingy.

    *NOTE*
    Testing this as soon as i get my nexus just to make sure.

    You just have to find something that puts out true HD.....netflix doesnt yet. BUT...i will put a 1080p movie on the nexus today and see is it streams it.....i will update with my findings. Ive been to lazy to do it on my rezound....well i guess i can do that when i get home in 30 mins to find out real quick on my rezound! :) my verizon store doesnt open till 10am.....but this gets great reviews on xda.

    I'll let you know!

    Thanks for the link. Please let us know how your video files play and what you play them with.
    I came across a video earlier where a guy was playing mkv files and they looked wonderful.

    You can get real HD off youtube if you play it in 1080p with the flash player through the browser instead of with the youtube app.

    Just received my cable today from the link in the OP. Playback is amazing. Tested with some 720p rips that the Bionic couldn't handle and I'm very happy with the Nexus.

    So does this thing work well for the Nexus? I wouldn't be streaming HD but I've got some good quality DVD rips that I would love to stream using Bubble UPnP over wifi.

    No no no, I am anal retentive and must make sure something is going to work the way I expect it to before I make a purchase, no matter how cheap. A simple "yes this works great with streaming" would suffice.

    Not sure, but the issue is not a software one. The RAZR was advertised as the first phone to be able to stream HD Netflix and mirror that onto a TV because it has special DRM that allowed HD transfer of content to the device. That was another reason why Moto is locked up tight.

    Since the GNex is wide open Netflix will not allow it.

    I'm not saying it cannot be cracked, but the issue is NOT one of Netflix support AFAIK. They deliberately don't want it happening on the GNex. The RAZR and Gnex both run the same app, yet the RAZR has the functionality

    I would think if it plays something as intense as a 720p rip it would handle a standard DVD rip without an issue. If you want me to test anything streaming app wise (netflix or the like) let me know and I'll give it a shot.

    I use the mhl adapter to output my emulators to the tv and then use a six axis controller to play them. The nexus doesnt seem to have the lag issues that the motorola phones did. All the classics on the big screen with no lag = fun

    I got mine this past week and it works pretty good. The only issue I have with it is that if you have an app that can't only do portrait mode it won't adjust on the tv so the screen on the TV shows it sideways.
