    Has anyone tried to use the 3.5mm headphone jack out to TV (RCA cables) to play videos or display photos on television? I've seen conflicting things on this as to whether it works on all Galaxy phones or not. I don't have the cable to try it.

    Thanks in advance.

    There was a way that they hacked it to work on the touch pro 2 back in the day so im sure it can be done.

    I had found the quote below on on Android message board a month or two ago....but it appears the TV out function is NOT available in the U.S. for all i can see.
    ---------------------
    quote:
    "Did you know some Android phones can do video out via the 3.5 mm headset jack? We have seen examples of video out using USB and HDMI, but the Galaxy S is the first Android phone (that I know of) to offer this feature using a 3.5 mm headset jack. I find this kind of surprising since we just attended the Galaxy S launch party and no one from Samsung mentioned this interesting feature.
    Apparently the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S has a TV out option built into the display settings that allows you to pick your TV type (PAL or NTSC). All you need is the appropriate cable, which goes from the 3.5 mm jack to the standard AV ports on your television.
    Best of all, this implementation of TV out mirrors the phone

    this would be nice, I just switched from my touch pro and I had an A/V out for it to hook up to the screen in my truck,,,kinda cool if I wanted to play videos, or show people something on a bigger screen, but my stereo also has an input for the 3.5 jack, I've been using it to play music from my phone in my truck today but found that the charger would put off too much interference.

    Same here. I am using a 3.5 cable for audio in the car, but when the charger is plugged in too, I can hear engine whine through the speakers.

    If your vehicle has a USB port, you can use that to charge the Epic, which should avoid any engine interference thru the charger.

    As for video, I can transmit files to my car's memory from my Epic thru the USB, but can't seem to find a way to feed the live video to my screen. Does anyone think this would need to be hacked to accomplish the live feed or is there a current feature of the Epic that I haven't yet discovered? has anyone hacked this thing (Epic 4G) yet???

    I also switched from a touch pro and am really missing my video out to the 9" screen in my Subaru. As for audio interference from charger, I have none from the Outback, neither when using the bluetooth connection nor the USB.
