    1. CRT + HDMI - You can do this with some receivers as long as it's not HDCP-protected content!
    2. OMAP - Yes, totally agree.
    3. The 30fps issue is a bug that is about ready to be fixed by a hack. Depending on what revision of the Evo you have, it may already be fixed. I believe rev 003 has it fixed but 002 is still in the works. So what you hear is wrong about the 30fps issue - they get it up to around 60fps once the hack is applied.

    Why are so many people on these forums bashing the Snapdragon? The 30 FPS limit on the Evo was never due to that processor. The GPU that HTC & co. have been bundling with it is kind of weak, but that's not the fault of the processor...?

    I agree. I think the Snapdragon does get a bit too much crap from people who don't know what the Snapdragon's value is. However, it is true that it performs slower than the other newer 1GHz processors.

    What the Snapdragon's true value lies with is a) being able to be multi-core (the other A8-based processors cannot) and b) the additional features that are built-in (this is a good article to learn some about this) therefore saving money in the build of the phone. So this means that the manufacturer can squeak in a couple other features for the same cost as the other manufacturers who are not using the Snapdragon. This is why you see the Evo with the most impressive featureset and why the other competitors appear worse on paper (until you consider the non-obvious things, at least).

    Yeah, HDMI to anything is possible, but without a digital display it would be counter productive. Though, good point, it can be done...
    I am glad you agree about the OMAP processors (that tells me you are informed.) The snap dragon will eventually be able to duo core, but that chip isn't out yet, just as the omap 4 will. (the omap 4 duo core will run circles around quallcomms dragon duo core IMO) I am pretty sure the low fps of the snapdragon is more than a hack (though it may be just a simple script?) Dunno, but this article says HTC has no comment HTC EVO 4G crippled to 30 FPS despite 1GHz Snapdragon (Phone Arena News)
    I am going to get back on topic here...Nothing about the HDMI on the X is sub-par IMO, and those that think phones are popcorn media centers need to wait a little, lol. We are not there, but will be soon;)

    Agreed, this generation phones will not be the awesome media centers we all want. However, it sure would be nice if they could be half-assed media centers, though! And I think THAT is what most are expecting. We'll just have to wait and see if that's possible, though...

    Cheers....:beer2:Let me know when a phone can stream the web (all of it) via hdmi would you? I am still a little envious of the new phones with hdmi outs, and I could find a good use for them, but I am sticking with me droid for now:)

    No they are not. A 720p movie is around 8gb if it is encoded in DTS. I dl A LOT. lol.

    15gb is more like a 1080p.

    Just go on a torrent site to lok at sizes. Your dvr just likes to waste your space.

    Of course it is all about bit rate, but I was trying to keep things simple. More efficient encoding algorithms (such as h.264) allow you to get the same quality video with a lower bit rate.

    On a further note, when ripping from a DVD, a lot of people remove excess audio tracks to reduce the file size.
