How do I display what's on the screen to TV using HDMI?
Do I need an app?
Well I do not know since I never knew that the tablet had a mini hdmi on it (thought it was normal hdmi when I tried to test a couple of players) but a member in here that is very knowledgeable about FT3 told me that the stock video player and image viewer is able to connect with hdmi.
it will only connect with some video and photo apps. The stock player and I think the Gallery video player will. Start the video then press Menu to send it to the TV.
That's disappointing to know. I was hoping to play angry birds on the big screen...
Why on earth wouldn't they include an app to turn on hdmi? It can't be that hard. The smartq I bought last year could do that, and it was manufactured a whole year ago.
Has anyone attempted to turn it on?
While I was rummaging through the system binaries one day I came across one called, if I remember correctly, hdmiswitch [or something very similar].
Now call me stupid if you want but that sounds suspiciously like something for switching hdmi output on / off.
I could be wrong, it has been known to happen...
I can't try it myself as I don't have a hdmi mini -> hdmi cable but feel free totry it and let us all know if it works. Now you mention it I quite fancy seeing birds the size of lemons flying across my 32" screens...
I got mine on ebay for only a few $. There are also adapters for < $2. It's a good investment, I would say.
www. monoprice. com has them and there only 4.00 also if you menu twice while your using ccplayer or default video player it will switch to alternaitive screen
hope that helps
im actually looking to convert that signal to analog so i can put it inmy car and connect it to my other tv screens any ideas
