I know how to view pics/vids with the cable accessory, but can't figure out how to due it over my wireless network. I just got an internet tv with wifi and everything is connected, but how do I view pics/vids on the big screen? I went to gallery and selected 'output', but tv doesn't show up as a device to select. Am I missing something simple?
I have searched, but was not able to find anything useful.

With having internet and WiFi your TV also might support DLNA.
And if your phone has the stock HTC app 'Connected Media' you should be able to see your phone's videos and pictures on your PC over wireless
If your TV can't DLNA, you could buy a DLNA converter.
HTC sells such a (expensive) converter as 'DG H100'.
Connect it to the TV with HDMI cable the converter acts like a wireless access point on WiFi.
On you phone you'll use this 'Connected Media' app.
Google Translate is to blame for my grammar

What type of video are you trying to play? I am able to play video files on my phone or I can access files on my laptop. I can not stream video from sites such as YouTube or Netflix. For the files on your phone, you may need to have an app installed on your phone which can play them since it will serve as your "decoder". I have MoboPlayer installed to play DivX video.
I tried this with a PS3 yesterday. The organic dlna capability of the phone didn't work with the PS3 but Skifta did work. I had to initiate everything from the PS3 though. (search for media server, go through file directories, etc.) However, when I played the music video that came with the phone (Ellie Golding) the video paused (needed a bigger buffer?) quite a bit. I wasn't impressed at all. My sons TVersity media server on his laptop played just fine. I can see I'm going to have to invest in the mhl (?) converter.
The HTC Rezound is the first Beats by Dre smartphone from HTC and will be available on Verizon. It truly is a high-end beast as it boasts a 4.3 inch 720p HD display, a 1.5Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video rec... Read More
