    Whats in store for the HDMI port?

    Im pretty sure the HDMI port is limited to only native photos and videos already on your port to be played on a TV - not downloading movies to be played over the HDMI

    nowwww that we have root, any ideas what is gonna be done with the port? I dont even have the mini-hdmi cord yet but if some cool apps in the near future show up i might just have to go out and get one...

    Any ideas where this is going to go so the root users can take more advantage of the HDMI?

    I would imagine that it is simply a matter of video file licensing that is limiting programs like BlockBuster's app from using the HDMI, that or they didn't think it through that far. I think its just a matter of time before you can stream HD videos over the HDMI output.

    Edit: On second thought, when you purchase a copy off of the Blockbuster app you are purchasing digital rights to it, so that couldn't be it.

    Yes, but I want STREAMING video. I could have told you it would do that.

    I like the external monitor idea, but it should also output anything on your screen, not just files on your phone. Which would include streaming video. Can't for the life of me figure out why they do something so cool as to put an HDMI port on a phone, then don't let you use it.
