I know that there are conflicting reports as to what plays and what doesn't through the HDMI port. I finally bought a cable. I plugged it in to my phone and the TV. The tv automatically switched to "480p" and goes black (like it is about to do something). But it stays black. For anything. Also, someone told me that there should be a little "HDMI" icon in the stop left of the phone when it is plugged in. I don't have this on my phone. Nothing happens on my phone at all. I have 3 HDMI inputs on my tv. It's a viewsonic, if that matters. Can somebody please help me diagnose this problem?? This is one of the reasons that I bought the phone. Thanks for any help.
