New Android user here, I was thinking about getting NBA League Pass Mobile on my Nexus One, but I was wondering if there is any way to connect it to a TV or computer monitor via the micro USB connection. 3.7 inches is nice, but watching the game on a bigger display would be nicer.

Would this work with some kind of remote server software?

I think it depends on the device - I know the DInc, EVO and X can do it, but it requires a special cable or HDMI Out. Not sure about the N1, but I don't think it has the TV Out capability.

Doesn't HTC have a box that connects to your TV and then your phone and it streams video to your TV set? At least that's what I heard...

The only problem i forsee if you are able to get it connected is it seems like it will behave like the DirecTV Sunday ticket would.

Some "live" streaming applications will acutally incode their broadcast to mobile devices that it cannot stream to the tv or monitor. I know with my evo when i connected to a HDTV with the HDMI out cable, it only played sound and after doing more research (contacting a buddy within DirecTV) that is what i found out.

Dont know if that will be the case, but be prepared if it is.

While we're resurrecting ancient threads of the past....

I found that my Amaze 4G has HDMI via the proprietary (but back-compat) ExtMicro USB port using a 5-pin MHL-HDMI adapter. But it was hit or miss, and I couldn't figure out why (thought it was a defective handset). I swallowed hard and bought HTC's $30 M500 adapter after reading that it was a "12-pin MHL-HDMI" adapter. Wellllll, HDMI worked fine, and I figured it was the extra pins hidden in the back of HTC's port.

Turned out someone on XDA-developers determined that the extra leads (on his HTC Incredible) include COMPOSITE video (e.g. the yellow RCA plug in stereo+video cabling), left & right audio, what appeared to be a "MIC-in" connection, etc. HTC sold an ExtMicro USB adapter with the 3 RCA cables for the old Incredible. Not sure if that would work with my late-2011 phone. Since the Micro-USB out supports HDMI and HDCP on the conventional 5 pins, I wonder if (and why) they are still including the other lines.... :-\

I had a similar experience with content, HTC Watch shows up on an HDMI monitor just fine, but T-Mobile TV (touted as HD, and super value packed you betcha) which costs an additional $13/month, doesn't show up on the external monitor at all. :mad: Why would they think they could charge more than Netflix does for all-you-can-eat streaming, but not let you use an external monitor, even with HDCP support? Silly.... (imho)

Huh? Why are new users joining, quoting an ancient post without comment, then disappearing...? I must not be seeing something in Tapatalk.

Funny.
I'm trying to figure out how to use one of my old androids (EVO) as an FPV screen, the feed is a 75mhz NTSC signal, analog. Prob just find a small converter. And yes micro USB has a few mysteries inside, there are several with unused/hidden pins.(trying to keep up with Lightning and 2 amp chargers) It's funny you can send/receive broadcasts in wifi and bt (if you re-install the old stack serve) but it's almost impossible to run a pipe to it. I have 8 cores and it won't accept a hardwire to take advantage of it. wtf:mad:
