    Ok, I'm fine with the 720P, but what of the 480P only issue? Has anyone with an EVO on these forums tested the video output via HDMI yet?

    I would hate to only get 480P output to my HDTV.

    weren't they the ones that recorded video in sup HD and put the content on a high def TV and complained it wouldn't show as 720p? There's the reason.

    Maybe somebody can clarify this, but I was reading somewhere that the problem may lie with the HDMI 1.4 connectivity and televisions that have chipsets with older gen (1.3 and lower) HDMI support. I don't know where the article is that I was reading so I may just be talking out of my rear.

    There is another thread suggesting PC Mag did not use the correct output, but this article was suggesting that some televisions HDMI ports will not properly support the connectivity.

    Anybody have some links, clarifications, understanding on how this works?

    I'm at the point where I'm going to ignore commentary on the subject unless it comes from a reputable site.

    The EVO doesn't even support 1080p.

    PCMag was using a 480p file on different TVs and we have no idea what the bitrate was.

    Wake me up when Engadget or Anand comment on this. Until then, I'll just wait to check it out for myself.

    HDMI 1.4 is backward compatible so your TV with 1.3 should have no problem you just won't be able to use the new features that 1.4 has ....Ethernet, Audio Return and either 2x or 4x resolution, depending on bit rate.

    PC Mag has lost it's credibility if it had any to start with...

    Sorry if this was already posted. I did a quick search but couldn't find anything. Maybe it was because I mistakingly searched under 1080p as per the articles I read.

    If the monitors highest resolution is 480p then whatever is sent in will be converted to 480p.

    Thumbed wirelessly from my HTC EVO 4G thru Sprint PCS. Please excuse any typos.

    I get 720p output with my EVO, even with 480p content.

    How does it work specifically? Does the video just start automatically outputting through HDMI when you plug it in, or is there a option you have to set?

    Also, what is the highest quality Evo playable format I can put on there? I don't know what format/setting is the best.

    basically you plug it in (i had to reboot once the first time) and a little HDMI logo will pop up on the top left of the upper status bar... then everything will happen through your phone.. until video outputs all your youtube (for example) controls will still be on the evo.. but the video will display on the TV ...

    keep in mind more stuff will be coming out for this since developers are pretty much given full control of the HDMI port for their applications (maybe even for gaming?)
