    Hey, sorry I am being such a noob with a bunch of these probably simple questions, but I am very new to high tech phones and I just kind of want to get the most use out of my phone. What is DLNA and how do I use it. I see people connecting phones to there TV wirelessly, and although it seems a bit unneeded, I would just like to see how to do it to show off my phone :). Any simple guidelines on how to do this?

    Sorry for being such an idiot, thanks for your time :)

    Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) devices act as a digital media player that can play media from a source over wifi. In order to do this your TV has to be DLNA certified and your phone as well. I'm not sure if the captivate is or not. You can find more info here:

    Hahahahaha, there still maybe a way to do it because the captivate does have TV out options under Settings>Sound and display (at the very bottom)

    You need to connect to the headphone jack. Don't get the iPhone one though, apparently it's wired in a different way. I have heard that the Nokia and the Belkin ones do work.

    One for an old iPod will work. The iPhone does not output video from the headphone jack.
