    Hard to say.

    Marctronixx and I show that with a proper MHL adapter and a native 1080p TV, 1080p works via MHL.

    Clearly your TV is not in question.

    But you also mentioned a problem with the international One X (Harry's phone for those that don't know) having a 1080p MHL issue.

    Maybe you could try another adapter and the shop would let you return it if it's a One X software issue?

    With my HTC Sensation connected to the HTC MHL, the TV shows 1080p !

    So the question is, does my One X let serve the MHL only 720p or do this all One X generally ?

    Could be a difference to the EVO 4G LTE ?
    We may assume that the EVO 4G LTE with a MHL serves 1080p.

    Edit: But dr g's EVO 4G LTE serves only 720p too :confused: ... or his MHL ?

    @harry,

    i know Dr. G is off relaxing and is not as geeky as we are :D so EM and I are waiting for Dr. g to try this download and report his findings.

    i think it could be his ebay adapter being an off brand mhl adapter that does not provide optimum performance--but that is just a guess at best.

    what say ye dr. g (fun fact: thats What I call Dr. Sanjay Gupta when i get to work with him..:D)

    Harry - you proved your TV negotiates 1080p, and that your adapter can negotiate and pass 1080p. That leaves the question of the phone difference.

    I noticed in the clove.co.uk vid in post 4 that they got 720p @ 60 fps also.

    Maybe this is something that will be addressed in a future update, of course, no telling on that.

    I've tried every combination of settings that I can think of, including changing the default video recording resolution, and can't get 720p at 60 Hz via MHL.

    Thanks for the info :)

    Just to eliminate an other unknown in the equation, I borrowed a Samsung MHL (for the SGS2) ... and get the same deliverable as with the HTC MHL ;)

    Tried several 1080p movies. No luck on 1080 output, I think it wold need to be 1080 all the time regardless of the movie resolution, no?

    I will say that Diceplayer is awesome though, really seems to leverage hardware acceleration well. I had some high bitrate mkvs I was trying on the stock player and rockplayer, and they all crapped out. Diceplayer ate it up.

    Are there other alternative players to try or is Diceplayer IT?

    I'll leave that to marc, but I think Dice is it.

    And yes - I'd expect 1080p connectivity at the desktop, before the player even started.

    The monoprice.com unit specs for 720p / 1080i / 1080p, 7.1 audio and hdcp, with a callout to the MHL Consortium.

    dr g - if you don't mind my asking, what make and model TV are you using?

    I don't have the model offhand but it's a Samsung 24"

    Looks like identical form factor for the adaptor, makes me want to open mine up and see what chips are in it.

    I presume 1920x1080 but I need to doublecheck.

    Doublechecked and verified. It's full HD.

    This cables are called MHL adapter.

    But you could connect wireless via WiFi to your HDMI TV, with the HTC MediaLink HD :)

    Wow! :)

    I will try it, although I like that it charges, my 3D didn't really.

    Do you get 1080p?
