Default Samsun Epic TV Out Cable

Anyone know of a HDMI or Compenent to micro usb cable to connect the Epic to a HDTV? I know that the Galaxy S series is capable of tv out as that is one of its Selling points.

I thought this was only capable to connect via DLNA compatible devices? I have older HDTV's so I'm not sure if the newer HDTV's are all DLNA compatible, or only certain brands.

ANNOYED WITH SPRINT

Indeed, annoyed with sprint. Though, I'm not familiar with other carriers, I know that sprint has been disabling devices for a long time. I just upgraded to an Epic from an original RAZR. I had to hack my RAZR to restore functionality with MPT, and now I find myself hacking my Epic as well.

The wifi tether would be another good example- sprint wants you to pay them $30/month to use this feature, when you can actually download a free app from the market for unlimited use. The app wont work though unless you flash a new ROM & Kernal.

Ive seen video out cords that plug into your 3.5 headphone jack and then on the other end split into the standard yellow red and white plug in cords. I have no idea if this would work but just so you know that there are things out there that you can try. Although i have had one sprint rep tell me it could be done and the other told me it couldnt...

i talked to the rep at Samsung at CES and the micro USB to HDMI is not a real cable for the Galaxy S phones. this cable works for a different phone.

Also the 3.5MM to RCA will not work for Samsung Epic 4G Sprint turned it off.

**WARNING**

Do *NOT* buy the EPIC 4G TV Out cable from 1800mobiles.com they claim to be compatible with the EPIC 4G and it's *NOT* compatible and they will not refund all your money afterwards. I paid for both shippings (to me and return shipping) and they partially refunded my money, lost $15 in a 3 cable order.
