    So I just got my Razr the other day and it is an awesome phone. I use Subsonic a lot to stream video from my computer to my Razr, and I was wondering if there is a cable to have the little HDMI convert to standard RCA for my TV. I do not have a hi-def TV and all I really want to do is hook up to RCA... Any help would be great.



    Any info on this one?

    After some reading I found that HDMI is digital and RCA is analog, so in all actuality it is impossible to have one wire to do this. Apparently the only way to do it is with a powered converter box which is a bunch more money. Sheesh... On the back of my TV Projector I have RCA, S-Video, and even a Computer Monitor input... Any ideas to get this to work with one of these at least??

    I have never tried but I would assume that cable you posted would work. You probably could return it if it didn't work correctly.

    I would stay away from the cables, they have been known not to work.
    This is what I bought. It cost 60 when I bought it, only 41 now.
    Works great on my Droid X. It comes with a lot of stuff too so the price isn't as pricey as you think.
    It comes with a RCA cable
    s-video cable
    a normal, long hdmi cable with cable protection: kinda looks like this

    And a cable that powers the box.

    Hey, thanks for the info man. I guess ~40 bucks is not THAT bad. All I would need it a micro HDMI cable to plug in then. Thanks!
