    Alrighty so used this link, bought the adapter, plugged it in and it works great but uhh... it's not charging my battery. The phone says it's in charging mode but the battery percentage goes DOWN.

    Have you had any trouble with your adapter like this?

    I see a slow discharge as well with that adapter, I'm wondering if my phone will last long enough to play a full length movie.

    And another problem I'm having is the TV screen goes blank on occasion while attached to my GN, not sure if its the phone,adapter or TV?

    That is normal. The discharge is more than the charge. So the battery still drains, just much more slowly. Your battery should last through several movies.

    Makes sense. Just watched an hour & 45 min movie and my battery went from 77% to 59%. I'm not too worried. Thanks!

    I tried this on my Bionic but you have to use the Google Video app, and it won't work if your phone is rooted. Is that still the case? Has anyone tried getting a movie from the market that was rooted and had it work (or not)? Just curious.....

    I did notice it discharging but I believe it was on a rate of 5% per hour of video. More then enough for a few movies on a charged battery.

    Can you watch a movie without the phone being charged?

    Just got the Samsung adapter in the mail and connected it to my HDTV. At first I couldnt get it to work and I was kinda angry. I rebooted the phone and now it works. Wierd.

    Anyway, it's pretty nice. I was playing Modern Combat 3 on the TV and it is AMAZING how far these phones have come. The game almost looked as good as FPS games on the Xbox from a few years ago.. got this one here.. http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-MHL-H...UDKK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325746306&sr=8-1

    Try rebooting the phone. Mine wouldnt work when I first plugged it in. Somehow a reboot fixed it.

    I just got a new adapter and plugged everything. Nothing appears on my TV... I used the HDMI1 slot. When the phone is connected the screen goes landscape. When I select HDMI1 as the source for the TV, my phone goes 'portrait' for a second and flips back to landscape but nothing else happens.. still nothing on TV.

    If the screen is off on the phone and I select HDMI1 on my TV, the phone's screen goes on...

    I did reboot the phone a few times and tried doing things in different orders...

    Anyone had their screen going portrait for a sec with no further response?

    Mine never quite fits the screen, it's just a bit bigger than my TV screen and clips the edges off, anyone have a fix for that?
