    Hi there,

    I hope some one may be able to answer my question.

    I'm hoping to use my Desire as an external monitor.

    Basically when I install CCTV system we normally use a test monitor to focus and test the cameras. It's my hope that I can use my Desire for this job as it's got a better resolution than my current test monitor and much lighter.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.:)

    There are a few CCTV viewer apps on the market, would any of these be of any use: CCTV Apps?

    Not quite, myself and others us these apps for viewing established system over the net.

    I could use one to fine tune an existing system but what I really need is to view what the camera sees at the source.

    The reason is that by the time the signal goes from camera to dvr (gets compressed to H.264) and sent over the net to my phone the signal is much poorer. So not much good for focusing.

    Thanks for trying thou.

    Yea, no way to directly connect anything to the phone, as a phone has no video inputs. Streaming the video to the phone over 3g/wifi is going to be your only option.
