    Streaming Netflix to my TV?

    OK, wonderful news about getting the Netflix app! It's working on my Gingerbreaded X no problem.

    BUT, I'm trying to stream it through my hdmi port onto my big 'ol TV. Usually with pics or vids it has the little hdmi icon to tap to activate it, but I can't seem to figure out how to activate the hdmi output while Netflix is streaming.


    any help??

    That isn't going to happen.

    DX- modded as far as it can be.
    Xoom- waiting on official SD update.

    Have you tried the RealHDMI app?

    Real Hdmi doesn't work on GB. The dev is working on it though.

    Can you provide some info about your setup? What version of GB and are you running a custom ROM?

    It's not working for me running Liberty v5 on GB .591 ATM...

    sure, running the rooted deodexed version of GB, .595

    I can stream Netflix just fine, but can't seem to initiate the HDMI output to the TV.

    Yes, I ended up switching to stock/deodexed .595 as well, running fine..HDMI output will likely take a bit to get working..

    moving to GB subforum...

    So this is only working on GB correct. Did you have to do any of the tweaks to the files to make the app think the phone is an G2?

    Yes GB only.

    No, for me all I did was load up deodexed .595, an upgraded to flash 10.3...

    (Swypin' .595 while watching Netflix on the go)
