    Default Galaxy Note as monitor for other devices?

    Is it possible to send video signals into the Galaxy Note and use the tablet as screen for external device? I have a Nokia N8 phone with HDMI out, and I'm trying to find a way to send the video signal from the N8 to the Note.

    You probably mean the DSLR Controller App, which lets you controll a Canon camera through the Galaxy. It's an awesome product and proves that using the Note as a monitor for other devices shoudn't be all that much of a hazzle.

    "As a monitor" would imply that there was some input that would accept a video signal in some standard video format (i.e., HDMI). I'm not sure there is any way to do this w/ the Note. The Canon app is displaying data, not a video stream per se. Another example of this would be a Remote Desktop app - you can 'see' your desktop, and even control it, but that's different than taking the video output of the PC and piping it into the tablet.
