    I want to hookup my EVO to an LCD projector. The only way I can think of is through a HDMI to VGA cable. I have seen a lot of cables on ebay but don't know if they will work with 720i. Anyone kown where I can get one and if I am on the right track to use the EVO with an LCD projector?

    Does the projector have any other inputs? DVI, maybe? Converting a digital signal (HDMI) to analog (VGA) is generally more trouble than it's worth. For example, check out the reviews on this cable:

    Next best option would be a VGA to DVI adapter on the projector, and a DVI to HDMI cable to the phone (you'd need another converter for HDMI to micro HDMI, of course).

    I thought a signal converter was necessary to do this (digital to analog)
