    I am wondering if it is possible to get Video in to the EVO. I know you can get it out.

    Yes, download video to it.

    If you mean plug a cable from another source and watch it on the evo, why? The screen isnt even HD.

    Hdmi in does have its uses. But to answer the question you will have to root and wait for someone to throw that in a Rom, that's if its even possible...

    Yeah... I'm thinking of using that new Google Widget Android App creator to get into programming apps. I drive an electric car and I have an output that shows my amperage, battery level, and rpms. It's just a video feed from a computer in the car. So in the vein of using my phone for absolutely everything, I wanted to take that video signal and use the EVO for Display.

    Maybe the EVO 2 will have it.

    My car is a converted Chevy Aveo (done in my garage). So unfortunately there is no app for that.:(
