    I read about this, but I took it as a rumor, now it's confirmed.
    I'll copy paste it from the user guide pdf:

    HDMI
    Note: You can view only user-generated content—your
    own photos and recorded videos . You cannot view
    commercial content—photos or videos that you
    purchased and downloaded


    This almost killed it for me (got my reasons). I might now wait for a device which I can connect to my HDTV and view my movies, my NES emulator, youtube, etc...

    And while dlna I believe is the answer for movies (at home), it won't make a difference for the rest of my concerns...

    That's exactly, word by word, what I wanted to do and thought I was going to be able to do. And the same with the youtube app, emulators, saved movies from my SD card, etc...

    But will it be possible to view HD content that you have DL from other sources that you copy from your main PC to the Droid X? If so thats not such a problem.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see someone come out with a solution to that limitation, especially for rooted users.

    If I am home and around my TV then I have a laptop around as is so no worries about that really. Though it was a selling feature to me too I am not going to skip out on it for that.

    I imagine someone will create an app to make the system think it is user generated content for your movies and such or some other sort of workaround. Really not worried about it.
