Real HDMI app brings full HDMI output to Motorola DROID X

Real HDMI app brings full HDMI output to Motorola DROID X
The Motorola DROID X for Verizon has a very desired feature in the presence of an HDMI-out port. However, if you have thought you would be streaming the movies stored on your memory card with something like SlingPlayer on your 50" HDTV, or output the video from your Netflix and YouTube clients, you've been sadly disappointed. The driver is limited to gallery-only mode, and another ROM would have to be flashed to remedy this, thus potentially voiding the warranty.

Now there is an app called Real HDMI, which costs $1.99 on Android Market, that claims to resolve the issue. It is allowing you to stream the said videos through, as well as show whatever your phone is displaying, on a larger screen.

User reviews are quite positive, and there is a Q&A what works and what doesn't in the app description, so if you need full HDMI on your DROID X, you can head over there, and give it a try. Bear in mind that it fully supports only the official ROM for now.

I tried messing with this today and had a somewhat tough time with it, when you use it, do you get stuck IN the HDMI app on the phones screen? It did display whatever I was doing on the TV but even when I hit home on the phone, the phone's screen was still in the HDMI app whereas the TV would display my home screen. Kinda made it difficult to navigate because I had to guess where I was pressing on the phones screen. This may not even make any sense I don't really know how to describe it.

Its made like that. IDK why. All they have to do is add transparency to the app. Problem solved.

Great feature, however does not mirror activity from devise, would like more options in settings such as picture resolution and zoom feature.
