Default Difference between Micro USB AND Micro/mini hdmi

Okay this is a turning out to be a big problem.

Is the cable to connect to the G2X the Micro USB TO HDMI??

or is it micro hdmi to HDMI???

or are micro hdmi and Micro usb same??? so meaning if i get micro usb to hdmi, it will be same thing as getting micro hdmi to Hdmi

It's very confusing this one..

There is a micro HDMI port for micro HDMI to HDMI cable for outputting to the TV.
There is also a micro USB port for micro USB to USB for charging and data transfer to computer.
Two different ports for two different purposes.

I know about the ports.. But which cable do i need to buy really. I want to buy the rite cable.

OKay, all I want to do is connect my phone to tv. Now to do that, my phone needs to be connected to HDMI on tv. Now after knowning all that, I am just simply asking which cable do i need to buy.

Because when i checked, some places they are selling - Micro usb to hdmi for g2x. so i got confused. Why is it being called Micro USB when it's supposed to have be micro hdmi

Look at this following link

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-6ft-Micro-USB-HDMI-Cable-LG-T-Mobile-G2X-2X-/350458877682?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item5198fa16f 2#ht_1453wt_1139

I get what you are saying cricketics. I was wondering same thing. I have seen that to see a cellphone screen on a tv I need a micro usb to female hdmi adapter and then a male hdmi to male hdmi lead. However if I can fit a micro hdmi directly into the phone's micro usb port then all I would need is a micro hdmi male to standard hdmi cable (and no need for an adapter). In other words the micro hdmi would have to be same shape and do same job as a micro usb. Which of the 2 options is correct?...1..use a micro usb to standard hdmi female adapter plus normal hdmi male to male high speed extension lead or 2.. just use a micro hdmi to normal hdmi high speed lead.
