There is a micro USB to HDMI cable from Samsung, but... When I was told at the Samsung booth at CES that the US versions of the Galaxy S family lack the chip necessary for HDMI output.

From what I've read they have the hardware in the 3.5mm jack to produce TV out but don't have a kernel capable of doing it. I heard that a guy at XDA got it working and was sent cease and desist letters from Sprint and Samsung.

Unfortunately, you'll have to use media streaming. I use Twonky which is pretty baller-status.
