    UPDATE: It was a bad ebay cable, i bought the $30 from sprint, and got a 25% discount :) and i was good to go! you will know immediately if it worked or not because when you plug it in, it says hdmi on the top right corner and tell you to play a slideshow or video

    after being like three weeks late, when i got my micro hdmi cord, i plugged in the hdmi to my phone then to multiple tv's, and nothing, no pics, videos from the phone or youtube, ugh. anyone else in this boat?

    Mine does not work as well. bought mine from him on ebay and when i plug it into my Sony XBR LCD it locks my evo up and i have to pull the battery. no idea if its the cable, tv or the phone as i only have one LCD tv and one cable and one evo.

    I bought my direct from the distributor: Arrow Electronics. It is a Molex cable. Works just fine. It was something like $9.

    I bought a cable from Amzer and hooked it up to my Samsung and it will not play any videos. Are you saying the cable is junk?
