    i heard android supports this feature so i was just wondering if anyone thinks it would be possible with a mini usb to hdmi wire and maybe a application together, to be able to output display from the nexus 7 to a tv. after doing some research i seen that others have sucessfully did this on other devices. any ideas??

    I don't think the N7 supports this. It requires a protocol called MHL and posts in this forum suggest that this isn't available on the N7.

    It's not just a protocol, it requires hardware in the device... which the N7 doesn't have.

    It's almost certainly a cost issue; the hardware costs money, the HDMI licensing fees cost money, and the tablet is already being sold for no profit.

    ^ Correct. MHL isn't supported on the Nexus 7.
