    Atrix Multimedia Dock Connectivity questions

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if it is possible to either:

    a) Connect the multimedia dock to a TV which does not have HDMI (I don't own a "new" TV, mine is a 32" CRT with Scart/composite in)
    b) Use the phone's screen instead of a HDMI TV when plugged into the dock.

    If the answer is no to both then my unopened phone is going back to t-mobile tomorrow because apparently the deal I took didn't include the lapdock, just the multimedia dock...

    Thanks in advance,

    PF

    Hi,

    I'm not quite sure if a HDMI to Composite/S-video adapter/converter (like this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0047P...193275-3817466) would work with the dock or not; I can't say I've seen confirmation on that.

    You can use your phone as normal when plugged into the dock. When you plug it in it will give you choices of what you want it to launch, like Webtop (HDMI), Entertainment Center (HDMI) Clock Widget (I think; stand alone) or Do Nothing which lets you use the phone and its apps as normal.

    Dear folks,
    I would like to revive this thread because I am particularly interested to know if I could use a VGA to HDMI adapter to connect my Atrix to a LCD monitor w/o a HDMI port. i.e. Atrix <-> HD Dock <-> HDMI cable <-> adaptor <-> VGA cable (16-pin) <-> LCD monitor.

    This is because I would love to use my Atrix in my office, where I only have a LCD monitor w/o a HDMI port.

    Can anyone with experience help? TQ!

    You will probably be the first one I heard that want to try said method. Maybe you can find a converter at Amazon.com. You can always return it if it doesn't work.

    Sorry, I hate to bust your bubble, but HDMI is a digital signal, while RCA is not. A cable alone wouldn't do the trick, you'd have to get a converter box to get it to swap.

    The reason why I know this is, is because of my project that I'm currently working on. I was trying to find a HDMI to RCA since I'm trying to install my HD dock into my car with a RCA screen. I had to scrap that idea and purchase a small 7" HDMI compatible screen.
