    I dont really know much at all about the hdmi output...but is there a way to record something with an hdmi output onto my droid x? Example: Xbox 360 gameplay/TV recorded onto my droid via micro hdmi cable

    Oh god no. The HDMI functionality is output only. Not like it matters anyway. The CPU in your phone is nowhere near powerful enough to do realtime video encoding, let alone HD at full HDMI spec. Possibly with a dedicated encoder processor, but no manufacturer has one of those in their phones that I know of. HDMI video recorders for PCs are already pretty CPU intensive as it is.
