    Anyone know of a HDMI or Compenent to micro usb cable to connect the Epic to a HDTV? I know that the Galaxy S series is capable of tv out as that is one of its Selling points.

    I thought this was only capable to connect via DLNA compatible devices? I have older HDTV's so I'm not sure if the newer HDTV's are all DLNA compatible, or only certain brands.

    Indeed, annoyed with sprint. :mad: Though, I'm not familiar with other carriers, I know that sprint has been disabling devices for a long time. I just upgraded to an Epic from an original RAZR. I had to hack my RAZR to restore functionality with MPT, and now I find myself hacking my Epic as well.

    The wifi tether would be another good example- sprint wants you to pay them $30/month to use this feature, when you can actually download a free app from the market for unlimited use. The app wont work though unless you flash a new ROM & Kernal.

    Ive seen video out cords that plug into your 3.5 headphone jack and then on the other end split into the standard yellow red and white plug in cords. I have no idea if this would work but just so you know that there are things out there that you can try. Although i have had one sprint rep tell me it could be done and the other told me it couldnt...

    i talked to the rep at Samsung at CES and the micro USB to HDMI is not a real cable for the Galaxy S phones. this cable works for a different phone.

    Also the 3.5MM to RCA will not work for Samsung Epic 4G Sprint turned it off.

    **WARNING**

    Do *NOT* buy the EPIC 4G TV Out cable from 1800mobiles.com they claim to be compatible with the EPIC 4G and it's *NOT* compatible and they will not refund all your money afterwards. I paid for both shippings (to me and return shipping) and they partially refunded my money, lost $15 in a 3 cable order.
