MicroUSB to Composite TV Out for EVO?
Found this link Incredible TV out video demo | DroidDog Android Blog which showcase HTC Incredible connected to tv, via MicroUSB to composite video cable. This is so cool! You are not limited with just display movies (like HDMI), but also able to display the whole desktop!
This is something most of us are wishing for, to be able to browse on tv, and use bluetooth keyboard/mouse.
Will this work for EVO? Is it even possible since EVO already have HDMI out, and HTC probably didn't need another tv out?

Very interesting, This can be a great feature, since the HDMI output on the EVO, only does output for videos, and maybe photos too? Does anyone know if you would be able to display flash video, (when it is available on the EVO) through HDMI?

I have posted about this many times too. I have an HTC Touch Pro 2 that does the same thing (composite video out via USB displays the whole device, not just videos) and had a Touch Pro 1 that did it with the same cable before that.
I actually expect the Evo to wotk the same as the Incredible with the Incredible's video cable.

I have the HTC TP2 and enjoy going from Micro USB to the inputs on my nav system so i can watch and hear YouTube any anything else mirrored from my phone.
I love the new EVO4G but it's a dealbreaker if somehow i can't go from Mini HDMI to RCA AV
And from what i gather here, even micro USB to AV out wont work either.
So, give up on it as of now?

For me personally, I was planning to use it with the Microvision ShowWX projector but they only accept composite input with their current model. They are planning an HDMI version in the future. This is a brand new device and they chose composite for some reason.
At least my Kodak PlaySport video camera has both HDMI and composite output.

I tried talking my wife into getting a new TV because Apple only has digital out on my new Macbook pro, no luck.. Everything is going digital. I may have to 'accidentally' spill a glass of water into the TV to force a purchase.

Common confusion arises from DVI to VGA (And DVI's typical compatibility with HDMI), which IS possible. The reason DVI can be turned into VGA via a simple adapter is due to the way DVI was designed. DVI-I/DVI-A ports are the ones capable of outputting a VGA signal due to their pinouts. There are versions of DVI that cannot do VGA, such as DVI-D.

HTC TP1/2 allow video out put with proper cabling from the micro usb connector. This video output allows connections to A/V devices which have RCA inputs
Whether the ECO 4g will allow this remains undetermined from all info I have gone through.
If it does count me in on buying it, if not, NO.
