FullHDMI app brings comprehensive HDMI support to the HTC EVO 4G

FullHDMI does exactly what the name suggests. There have been workarounds before, which required custom kernel installations and the like, but FullHDMI keeps it simple, working with all AOSP and Sense-based kernels, although you need to root, of course...

Does this mean Sprint TV can be viewed on a regular TV with this option?

yes, but i don't know why you want to. its already blurry on the 4.3" screen, imagine it on a 55" tv

Yeah, I don't know anybody that actually uses Sprint TV enough to try and mirror it onto a big screen.
Also, only some channels on Sprint TV supports 720p, most of which are "premium".

Have to say though, it doesn't look a patch on Nokia's HDMI out solutions with The N8/E7, and even my N900 with it's component TV-Out looks to handle gaming and video better - seemingly optimizing Games, videos and images for TV when using the cable, and all out of the box.

Not trying to just be a fanboy here, but I do struggle to be impressed by the results in this video, especially given everything you need to set that up.

IT is good that it enables some form of proper tv out though - images and YouTube only is pretty poor considering they put a dedicated port on the device, but on any device with a HDMI port, a reasonable TV out experience out of the box is a must.

Want to edit the above as I posted too early - before i had seen all of it. The image quality, especially in the last segment is fairly decent. Not sure it's as good as Nokias out of the box stuff still (even without their Big SCreen app) , but it is pretty decent.

I still think if you are going to have a HDMI/TV out solution built into the phone, none of this effort by the community should be necessary though. Props to these guys for getting it working.
