Default Possible to connect Razr to TV mirrored wirelessly??

I'm wondering if it's possible to connect my Razr wirelessly to my TV to mirror content from the phone to the TV?? It has HDMI out and that's the route I've been considering but it's a long range deal, needing a 25' cord for the routing which could be a problem with signal degradation. Is it possible to mirror content wirelessly to the TV??? Or should I just order the 25' cord???

I don't know the answer to your question (leaning towards 'no', but I expect it depends more on your TV than anything - the answer is probably in the TV manual).
However, 25' is a long way to send the HDMI signal. I'd actually be sort of surprised if that worked.

Why does it have to be 25 feet away. Buy the docking station and a normal HD cable and a cheap wireless keyboard and mouse at Walmart. That is all you need. I went a bit fancier and got the Motor smart control instead of a cheap mouse, but I am using the cheap wireless keyboard. It is an awesome system. Works fantastic. I can take calls, send texts and emails, control my entire phone from across the room. Of course to take the calls etc, you would need the smart controller or another type of Bluetooth headset. Well worth the money for all of the functions to work right.

I believe the feature you want is DLNA (samsung phones allow video over dlna).

This thread suggest that the razr has dlna; though I'm unsure if it will transfer video:

This review indicates that dlna on the razr can be used for video:

No clue if dlna on the razr will mirror or only display a chosen video (I do not have a video device with dlna to test).
