Maybe a future option would be to force-bring audio back. Will need a kernel hack for it though, but not a big deal.
The back button was implemented to do what you are asking guys, to quit the app. At first I made it so it would quit the app and the stop the service as well, but while testing it I would start the service and hit the back button to start a game or so instead of the home, and the service would stop. It was a bit annoying so I chose to have you explicitly hit the stop buttong to stop the service. Back button will exit the UI but if the service is running your notification icon will remain there and you get a toast stating that as well.
I you hit stop and the UI reports it stopped, then the service is not running anymore.

The reason I ask that is because I have been using this on my computer monitor with an HDMI to DVI converter cable. The audio isn't carried over to the monitor in this scenario, but if I had another audio source....
Probably just wishful thinking, but I figured if you were tinkering around with the audio, I would throw my two cents.

I have been bored today and uploaded a few you tube vids.
This one is running Myn's Warm Z and attempting to play a vid on the YouTube app. Any idea why Warm Z semi works with this?
and this one is just showing the games Stupid Zombies and GUN BROS, both fun games and nice to play on the big screen where you can watch the TV and use the phone as a controller.

Any testers that were just given the new Netarchy Kernel with the HDMI drivers, I had a word of caution and a tip if you get stuck.
The new kernel is much better than the stock kernel with the HDMI drivers baked in. While I appreciated Sam using the stock kernel, and Artlan packaging it into a .zip, I am an overclocker.
I am loving the new kernel. It works flawlessly with Myns 2.2.
But I used SetCPU from the market, and tried to throttle it all the way up, and my phone immediately rebooted. It looks like SetCPU has some issues with the Netarchy kernel. 1.19ghz seems to be the perfect setting.
If you put it over that, and checked the box that says "set on boot", then your phone is probably stuck in a bootloop. You can get out by booting to recovery, and using the following ADB commands.
I learned this the hard way. The way out of it, without nandroid, is below.
1) boot into recovery
2) adb shell
rm -r com.mhuang.overclock
3) reboot phone
Basically what this does is removes the setCPU settings, so the phone isn't trying to overclock every time it finishes booting.
I hope this helps some of you that just downloaded the new kernel, and hopes all of the future users that will be using overclocking kernels.

A more basic way to fix the boot loop from overclocking (been there myself) is to pull the battery, boot into recovery and just wipe Data.
The new kernel is really smooth and my phone loves it so far. It can't be posted in public without source code. Sam has said he will do this when he finds time to open a github account.

Hi Sam- total noob here but I've got to say that this has been a project I've been watching since I got an EVO back in July, that, at many times appeared completely dead in the water. I previously had the same TVout2 setup mentioned above and found it super finicky, whether it was due to iPhone Jailbreak instability or the program itself. As such, I've been really hesitant to root my EVO, but I might make an exception if this beta/program gets all the kinks worked out. I haven't seen anywhere that you're currently working on non-rooted phones in all of the 68 pages in another thread or 11 pages here (I know at one point you were), but if something like this made it to non-rooted phones it would be huge. I know you're probably too busy/burnt out from the significant progress you've already made to be taking suggestions, but I wanted to say thanks and keep up the good work. I'll be keeping a close eye on this- that's for certain.

reflashing the kernel didnt fix it looks like im gonna have to wipe and start fresh.
plus side is damn this kernel is awesome.
why doesnt netarchy post the new kernel on his site? wouldnt that be easiest? that way its where eveyone already goes for his kernels.
sorry dont mean to be a nag just asking.

ok so i figured it out, turns out that something to do with slayers cyan dragon theme was messing things up. did it three times just to verify everything works great until i install slayers theme and then the stock hdmi goes.
got everything straitened out now.
the new kernel seems to be running very smooth on my evo too, not quite as fast as the kernel i was running but i dont think this one is as aggressive since its a less and i was on a more.
does this kernel have sbc?
testing more now with the new kernel.

The Kernel is not public and distributing it publicly needs to be accompanied with the sources. It already changed a few times and some bugs fixed since the testers got to sample it anyways. It is not ready for public use for many reasons, but once it is I will post it here.

Thanks for the info... All I was lolling for just want to be up to date with everything... So far app is working flawlessly.. Only thing I kinda notice with the kernel I'm running now (original) is batt decreases a little faster than normal while in use... Otherwise everything is perfect

this app is definitely phenomenal and works well i'm trying this with continuously changing sense roms that are of high usage so i will continue updating here results.
so far ive ran this setup with original kernel and 22610 beta and only real problem i noticed was when using standard video its a bit of a glitch here and there but that is already known. and this was running it on 2.0 based myn's warm z port

flashing and glitching seem to be greatly reduced with the new kernel.
before raging thunder was unplayable now it runs with only the occasional glitch usually when i tap for boost in fact most of the glitching ive noticed seems to be attached to me taping the screen when left alone the glitches almost disappear entirely.
picture seems to be a tad bit sharper as well, at least in 480 i havent gotten to 720p testing yet.
this was all in hardware mode with supercharge enabled.
bitbop is still not working gitches badly during playback and you still get a layering effect as it goes through its start up dialog for playback instead of diplaying the dialog then it disapearing then new dialog it never disappears just layers on top of one another. when video starts to play the "layers" disappear but video still glitches badly.
Also i have a suggestion it would be great to have an option in the app like slacker does to keep the display always on when plugged in. every time the screen times out the service has to be restarted.
