    Is there a way to turn your computer into a display for you phone. For example, playing a game on your phone but seeing it on your computer.

    That doesn't have an HDMI output...so I don't see a way to do it honestly.

    You want to use your TV as your computer monitor?

    Most hdtv's under 40 inches have the standard VGA hook up meaning you can use your same cord that is most likely plugged into your computer monitor now. 42 inches and up will not have a vga hook up so you're looking at dvi or hdmi cords being about the only way. Of course you must have the correct graphics capabilities on your computer, be it integrated graphics or dedicated with those hook ups

    The Vibrant does have the capability to output to a monitor/TV (although I haven't tried it). But in my searches around the internet, I came across these:

    MicroUSB to HDMI out for Galaxy S phones

    and on the Samsung website:

    3.5mm to RCA TV out cable , compatible with the Vibrant

    Additionally, when I updated my Vibrant to 2.2, in the phone settings, under Display, there is an option to configure TV-out settings.
