i've streamed movies from the x via hdmi to my big screen. you have to use the stock video player. once it's connected to your tv (and you've selected the correct input on the tv, navigate to what you want to watch. when you select the stock video player, a small icon in the upper left corner of the screen will appear, touch that icon, the screen will change to big buttons, touch play (the big button in the middle), and there you go.
the app, real hdmi, can be used to play any video via hdmi to your tv. (there's a thread that explains its use in detail; i found the ui a handful, but it helped that by the time i bought the app i was pretty familiar with my x's layout.)

According to me, you need to change your HDMI cable. I think your HDMI doesnt support your TV. Its better that you change your cable. Better if you purchase it with showroom or from a genuine shop.
