    I purchased an HDMI cable for my Droid X from Amazon.com and when I tried it out it didn't do anything. I don't have wi-fi, I just want to watch my videos on my tv. It' s a Vizio, about 3 years old. Don't know if its my tv or my DroidX. Again, nothing happens when plugged in.

    Once you plug it in and your TV is on start a video on your phone and it should enable the HDMI out.

    You need to hit the hdmi icon in the upper left of the screen. Hope that helps.

    Glad I could help. In 2.1 it was automatic, also be sure to put your phone in airplane mode as a call or text will interrupt your viewing.
