Default EVO as second monitor???

any software to make my evo work as a second/third monitor?

to clarify, I'd like to be able to connect my evo to the computer using the
usb cable and have it show my computer's desktop as a second or third monitor. (I already have 2, but would like a 3rd for playing movies or something)

just a thought. Thanks!

That would be awesome, but i dont see it happening any time soon.

I can see a lot of uses for it: keep media player playlist open on the phone, photoshop pallete's, bookmarks while in a browser.

this wouldnt really help you as it would require configuration and setup on the laptop also. but you could always get a used cheap LCD off of craigslist or u can get a new 19" monitor for under $100 bucks anywhere.

I would also like to know if hdmi in is a possibility. I work for a cable company. Sometimes I install at homes with no tv. Instead of rescheduling I could use my phone to show there set top box works....

You'd like to see your EVO levitate what? If you just want it to levitate a feather, yes, there's an app for that, but with the battery life as it is, I don't think it can levitate a car for very long...but think of how nice that would be in a traffic jam!

Real funny guys, but lets not take this thread off course.

How about using a USB KVM switch.

The basic question is whether the HDMI jack on the Evo is only an output, or is it capable of input also?

I would think that it is only for output and thus you can't use it for receiving signals.

well it works over wifi for the ipad, and shows up as a secondary monitor, basically would be like VNCing to a second screen.
I have not seen anything to support input over hdmi

Thumbs up

It should be pretty simple in fact:

1. Create a virtual second monitor on your system. Pretty simple in windows: ZoneOS ZoneScreen
2. start a vnc-server on that virtual monitor
3. use a vnc-client for android to connect to that second screen

So in the end you'll have a virtual second screen that is visible in you android device...

You can try this App. It may not let you use your PC as a second monitor but you can fully use your Mobile Device to minipulate your PC over an Internet connection to your PC and a WIFI/3G+ on your Device. I use it quite frequentely.
You may even be able to use it as a second monitor.
Try setting it up and see if you can grab it with your phone. If not, email the developer, I am sure they can get something going.
