Rezound hdmi out performance
When I play games such as Shadowgun, Reckless Getaway, N64oid, Gensoid and Snesoid with a bluetooth gamepad (phonejoy), they work flawlessly smooth and fast. When I hook up the hdmi out cable to my tv (playing games with a bluetooth gamepad from my phone on my tv was my entire goal from the outset) the performance of all these drops severly.
I get the rezound is pushing two displays but it makes even Snesoid and Gensoid run unplayable bad. Shadowgun and reckless getaway or 'playable' but still jerky and you can tell the controls have a loose, delayed feel when using hdmi out.
It pains me to think that if they just would've let us turn the phone screen off while using hdmi out it would only be pushing one display and run much better...
So my question is multi-part:
Can I force the phone to only display the hdmi and not use up resources displaying on the phone as well?
Can I force it to output maybe 720p instead of 1080p to gain performance?
I am not rooted, but last resort if I rooted and overclocked or something could I achieve playable hdmi out results?
Playing on my phone with the gamepad is great but the whole point was to use hdmi out and it doesn't seem like this phone is doing it very well. Surprising considering it's power.
Any help? Thanks
