    Best way to output games to tv?

    Hey guys,

    I'm an atrix n00b. I just picked up my phone earlier in the week. One thing I would REALLY like to do with it is use it (in conjunction with the wiimote app) to play emulated games on my tv. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like I can't accomplish this with just an hdmi cable. I would be willing to pay for the multimedia dock, but I'm not sure it would do any good. What is the best way to accomplish this? I don't know much about the galaxy sii, but if I can't figure this issue out I am probably going to return my atrix and wait for that to be released in the US.

    I am not completely opposed to installing a custom rom, but would rather avoid it as I really don't have any problem with the motorola's 2.3 update (other than the lack of hdmi mirroring).

    Thanks in advance for any responses!

    I'm not 100% sure but I would not matter which phone you have. This is not possible.

    Really? No phone out there does mirroring over hdmi? So even if I buy the dock it won't help? Man, that's bad news. It would be such a cool use of the phone!

    Ah well, this phone is still way better than my previous phone that came from that dreaded fruit company.

    Thanks again for your response.

    Not to correct you Rob, but it is possible. Right now there is a mod for HDMI mirroring, but it's in portrait mode only. The source being released might help further development on the landscape side of things.

    You could also accomplish it via the HD Dock as you could use the emulated phone screen in the Webtop to see the game on your phone. The resolution might not be the greatest, but it would work.

    You can also accomplish getting the Webtop with a mod from XDA to use the Webtop over HDMI only.

    I don't know if you're willing to root and mod your phone like that, but if so just let us know and I can provide the links.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way.

    Thanks guys! I'm on the verge of rooting my phone. I was trying to avoid it since the phone is new and I would hate to ruin it, but there's too much I want to do that requires rooting and I dont think its that risky.I have some experiencing rooting and installing a custom rom on a viewsonic g tablet, but that was given to me for free so I wasn't too scared of screwing up

    Good luck with it!

    Try to back up any and all system files that you change or replace if possible. Missing or altered system files will cause future updates to fail on install.
