    Fantastic. Being that it's amazon prime, I get free 2 day ... so is $20 worth it or have people been finding better/cheaper deals out there?

    Thanks

    I found $15 for a 5ft one on amazon. Just received it today!!

    It works! Ripped DVDs look great just like a DVD, but a digital copy tranfers that come with BD look a little choppy! Both were used for play back on a 52" plasma.

    No it's not lame! You can rip DVD's download them to the X and then you can travel and hook it up and play back the movie on a TV. I have tried several differnt movies and they seem to work. I will say that movies ripped in an MP4 format looked great, just like the DVD but the digital down load that are coming with BD are a llittle choppy on a 50" plasma.

    Overall I am satisfied with the HDMI feature.

    What else did you want it to do?

    What else? DROID DOES!

    How about showing the entire Android OS to HDMI? I know it's possible! Jesus saves!

    Off topic, but being that you have mentioned the ability to root the X ... Is there any easy way for me to back up everything on my phone (apps, not sync data)? I haven't dug into this yet, this is my first Droid. When/If I have to redo my phone from a root, I'd like to be ready. I've already invested many long nights into setting up this phone exactly how I want it. I'd hate to have to manually redo it all!

    Probably, yeah. The update might unroot your phone and, to be honest, I am not sure.

    You can buy high quality micro HDMI (D type) to HDMI (A type) at Monoprice.com for really cheap.

    $5.54/3 foot cable
    $7.12/6 foot cable
    $9.35/10 foot cable

    The only issue is that they're currently not showing any of these in stock.

    Someone removed the link in this thread to an amazon hdmi cable for like $4 ... just got it today and it's not the right one. The one side is definitely smaller than a regular hdmi, but entirely to big for the Droid ... crap!

    Anyways, I already have a 15ft HDMI cable coming out of my receiver to pug in other devices (like laptop). I'd actually prefer to simply piggy back off that cable. Take a look at this ... was thinking something along these lines perhaps? Obviously this won't work, but anyone know of something similar for HDMI to Micro HDMI? I'm still looking ...

    Amazon.com: Micro Connectors Mini Display Port to HDMI Adapter (9 Inch): Electronics

    Thanks!

    What software did you use to rip the DVD's? I am having a hard time finding something with the right resolution.
