    I just ordered an HDMI cable for the Iconia. It has the micro HDMI on one end and the regular HDMI on the other end. I ordered this from Wal-Mart, oh by the way, it's 10 feet long! It was only $8.82 delivered to my local Wal-Mart store. What a steal, I can sit on my couch and use the Iconia on my 42" Vizio!

    What deals have you got lately?

    I got a 6ft hdmi cable (regular size but i already had the adapter) for 99¢ shipped i ordered 3 of them. You can never have to many hdmi cables. Also picked up a few 32gb cards from a member of this forum for $35 each.

    Anyone know they there is an hdmi dock or something? I know there is that charging dock thingy but you still have to plug in all the cables to their ports I would like something i leave plugged to my tv then just put the acer on the dock and bam done.

    32GB, I'm envious! I recently bought a 16GB MicroSD card along with a 32GB thumb drive. Trying to prep it to be able to play movies.

    Best Buy had a sale so I picked up a 10' one for $8. BB is typically a ripoff when it comes to cables, don't buy from them normally!!

    I know what you mean. BB recently charged me $30 for a 2 meter HDMI to Mini-HDMI cable. Found it at Wal-Mart for $25, so I took the BB one back. Then I found a 10 Foot HDMI to Mini-HDMI cable on Wal-Mart's web site for $8.72 with tax and Site to Site, so I got the shipping free by picking it up at my local Wal-Mart. I am happy now; now all I need is some movies for the A500 and I am set!

    According to the Acer site, the docking station for the A500 has HDMI (full size) and audio out. With the remote as well it does look like a pretty good option

    Sorry if this is a bit off topic but since my question is about hdmi and all of you seem to have one thought I might ask here.

    Which cable do I need to looking for? When i look at amazon, ebay, and others there are like a million different types. Mini, micro, type c, type d, and a ton more. Which one works for the a500?


    Ok there aren't really a million types but there are a lot and they all pretty much look the same from what I can tell from pictures online.

    This is the lead you need:
    Amazon.com: Fosmon HDMI to Micro HDMI Cable (6 Feet): Electronics

    or if you have any spare, standard HDMI's kicking about. You could use an adapter:
    http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-Female-Micro-Male-Adapter/dp/B004I4YPB4/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1329730663&sr=8-4

    allthough you may want to find a US based seller
