    You still need it for anything outside the gallery. Unfortunately from another site:

    Its now back on the marketplace for Froyo/2.2 users. Just took me a while to figure out all the stupid stuff that was being done differently with the new HDMI driver in 2.2.

    Are you ever going to be able to get it where it can run in the background?

    Depends what you mean about run in the background.

    Right now the app can start up and you can configure it for tilt on/off Real HDMI - Control HDMI Port on your Droid X
    and then hit the home button. Navigate where you want to go, then do the tilt on/off thing. App will sit in the background running and allow you to turn on/off at will why you navigate around. The App is getting closer to being a service/widget type of thing but that is an ongoing project as I rewrite things to better seperate interface from control.
    If you are running an agressive application killer that kill apps that are in the background then real hdmi tends to get killed unless you exclude it.

    If what you mean by background is having screen frozen on the LCD display while stuff is going on with the TV. The phone can only control one display at a time, what ends up on the LCD is what is last displayed in the LCD buffer when HDMI gets turned on. Using the tilt on/off method in the link above you can selectivly "freeze" what you want on the LCD screen by turning HDMI ON/OFF via one of the sensor methods. (such as tilt)

    FYI: Link above is my main support thread/forum. I try to check in on other forums but am always monitoring the one on droidxforums.

    Agreed. I just got my micro-hdmi cable and need this desperately.

    Edit: Looks like Froyo in-fact created a bug with the drivers. Gman has sent information to Motorola, who seem to be aware of the issue. Let's hope they clear this up ASAP, as I know I would love to have this app!
