    I don't know, I hate that you have to have an adapter to use HDMI out its so lame. Why couldn't they just have a seperate port like on the og evo.

    That way you can dock charge it and then still use HDMI out, so you're phone won't power off when you're watching a movie or something.

    Yeah, at least the official dock should have had the pins to do HDMI out, sort of killing two birds with one stone idea. Anyone else know if it mirrors the display onto the TV?

    surely a 16:9 tv will always be ok?
    Nope.

    I have a 16:9 Panasonic in my bedroom that fills the screen (but does have some overscan all around the edge.) However, at one hotel I stayed at a couple weeks back, the 16:9 flat screen they had did not properly format. The picture is a little squished/stretched as a result. Playing with the various aspect ratio stretch modes on the TV did not solve the problem.

    Personally, the Motorola implementation of mHDMI is much better imo. Not only can a person just plug a mHDMI cable straight in and be good to go (without even needing to dink with a power connection) but they have an overscan adjustment on the phones that allows the viewer to adjust for overscan and get a proper picture on screen. MHL is the one true weakness of the GSIII imo.

    id say its less a weakness and more of a kick in the stones for people loyal to samsung (not me) who have all the accessories from their s2 or whatever. im yet to hear a tecnical reason for changing the wiring for mhl???
    yeah dedicated micro hdmi is much better.
    we'r moving to my pad tonight which has a smaller but better definition 16:9 screen so il report how it goes with that.

    *tangent* are there any apps to adjust size output and tweak things to work on any tv?

    Looks beautiful on Technica 32" (technica is a rebranded tv made from samsung parts for a huge UK supermarket chain i think)
    Quality is much better than on fiances bigger but lower density tv. No over/underhang.

    Id recommend to everyone to get samsung branded mhl adaptor for few quid extra. Although i got a working relacement for my aftermarket one... the build quaility isnt great :thumbup:

    One of my TV's is a Samsung Smart TV, so this isn't an issue I have to deal with on that TV. Have to say, very glad I got that TV now.

    Not sure what all, other than being 3D. It will also connect to the internet and be somewhat of a computer. It was cheaper than the "plain" TV's which is why I got it

    Got it long before I got the S3, haven't tried that out much other than playing a video from my S3.
