    RealHDMI has been updated to support the new GB leaks!
    Tested and working on GB 595.

    Source: Welcome to the GmanApps

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gmanapps.realhdmi

    RealHDMI + modified flash + Hulu = win
    RealHDMI + Netflix = WIN!
    RealHDMI + Wiimote + ANY Emulator = EPIC WIN!

    Note: I am not affiliated with Gman, i am just a fan of his app.

    I updated mine last night and it is not working for me on the GB .595 leak, it detects the HDMI cord but that is it.

    Glad this topic came up. I decided that I would try to hook my Netflix enabled phone up to HDMI and watch on my TV. Nothing happened, so I looked up what to do and it looks like this app is necessary to use HDMI on the X. Is this correct?

    I uninstall RealHDMI and reinstall it, now it's working fine. I can stream Netflix to any TV running GB .595.

    so how is the pic quality on the TV. the quality on my phone over wifi is actually worse than when it is connected via 3g, which isn't that great either.

    I'm in the same boat as ^, with 3g giving me better picture on my phone than wifi... but oddly enough the 3g over hdmi was really pixilated, but on wifi it's fantastic.



    however...

    every twenty minutes or so realhdmi stops detecting the hdmi cable. not a big problem, since i just have to unplug and plug back in, but kind of annoying. anyone else having this issue/know how to fix it?

    So, after killing myself trying to figure out what the problem is, I did end up e-mailing the dev, and for anyone else having this problem (netflix causes hdmi to cut out)--

    Apparently netflix buffering uses so much ram that android kills realhdmi. No fix for it yet, but the dev is aware of it and they're actively working on a fix.

    I guess what that means for now is, turn your autokiller settings as low as you can to keep android from killing realhdmi. Still annoying, but not terrible, and a fix is on its way!

    I noticed this as well and here's what I do to "fix" the issue. Since you're already using AutoKiller just open up the RealHDMI app then open AutoKiller and long press on the RealHDMI app in AutoKiller, then select "Lower oom value".

    So yeah, just to check back in-- I tried giving that a shot, lowered realhdmi, still had problems. Figured maybe autokiller was itself being killed, lowered realhdmi AND autokiller... same problem.

    Blah. Ended up using autokiller as a task killer to kill pretty much everything but netflix, realhdmi and autokiller, which mostly fixed the problem (regularly go 30+ minutes without anything getting killed). I HATE killing processes, but until we get a workaround I guess I'll have to, unless anyone can think of something else.
