    What kind of quality can the Incredible output to a TV through its mini USB port?

    I'm thinking that it would be pretty cool with nesoid, snesoid, genesisoid (whatever it's called). Like 3 classic consoles in one.


    Does anyone know what kind of quality the Incredible can output? Also, does anyone where I can actually get a cable?

    I believe it is just standard definition. Any micro usb to composite cable should work.

    Fortunately, all the game consoles you are referencing are SD anyway, so you won't loose any definition.

    I'm quite curious about trying this as well. It'd be real interesting if you could get a splitter so that you could charge as well. Then, enable the use of a Bluetooth keyboard and possibly some sort of touch pad. Then it could function as a lower level portable media center, especially post Android 2.2 and full flash 10.1.

    I know, I'm a bit of a dreamer...

    Except that there is no micro-usb to composite cable.
    And as far as I can tell, its not a standard cable, its an HTC extension to the USB spec.

    I heard a rumor on the internet and just wanted to ask you guys, who I really trust, does anyone know what kind of quality the Incredible can output? Also, does anyone where I can actually get a cable?

    When using the tv out feature through the micro usb port, would it be possible to charge the phone at the same time?

    A lot of the mini usb to a/v cables have these in them. Ordered one of them the other day along with a mini to micro adapter. I'll report back as soon as they get here from timbucktoo.

    My new phillips 47" has a usb port on the side, although when i plugged my phone in it it charged my phone and allowed me to play music and look at pictures. Where is the tv out setting?!
