Makes sense to me
Im sure once the X is rooted youll be able to see whatever you want on your tv via the HDMI out
Highly doubt that a rooted user won't eventually have a way around this restriction.
For most things...
I could definitely see things like BlockBuster downloads being DRM-protected in a way that we may not get around (at least not with an "acceptable" work-around that doesn't take far too much time/effort).
For most... I agree. Not all.
But HDMI out is in it's infancy in a mobile device. As the technology grows companies like BB and Netflix will work to find a way to take advantage of it.
Since the droid x has all the drivers and hardware there for HDMI out put. All someone will need to do is create an app that uses that out put to show what is on your screen. Simular to what the HTC incredible does now.
This is the same policy that the HTC Evo 4G abides by. not sure if it has been hacked yet.
Just incase some of you have no idea what I am talking about... someone will need to make a app that does this. Only utilizing the HDMI out, rather than using composit video cables
interesting....though from the last few posts, seems like no biggy
That assumes no HDCP is being used. If so, then this may be more difficult on the stock ROM. Perhaps on custom ROMs it would begin to become trivial, but that whole signed bootloader is a big hurdle for that!
What would HDCP have to do with it? Not being smart.. wanting to learn. In my thinking if the app is just replacating what is on your screen, to me it would seem that big of a deal to make. But I'm no programer either lol. Now I dont think a method like this is going to yeild the highest quility in video, but I think it can be done. I am not too worried. I think the phone will be rooted in 90 days anyways
