Anyone tried this with good results?

My results:
I use the free "device check disabled" version of the Netflix app, and it operates great on my stock unrooted DroidX. Watched entire movies over 3G with no problems. Works over WiFi too.
Got myself a HDMI cable for the phone to TV (less than $4 incl. shipping, from Amazon)
I've tried using the free "Xternal Display for Droid X" app to send output to an external HDMI monitor.
Works for a couple of minutes, then quits.
I suspect the "Xternal Display" app is getting swapped out by the Android OS, and that kills the TV output.

Sent from my unrooted DroidX using DroidForums app
