    Playing videos from Atrix on HD tv through the HDMI cable

    I shot a short video on my Atrix 4G and then connected it to my HD tv with the provided HDMI cable. When I switch over to the HDMI source that the cable's connected to, it shows the Motorola logo on the tv screen (which tells me it recognizes the phone), but when I start playing the video on the phone, it doesn't play on the tv screen instead.

    Is there something else I need to do first?

    Ok im a little late but here goes. As soon as I connected it a screen came up and asked if I wanted to use the media center or nothing. When you choose media center you can view pictures, videos, and music. The output video quality was in 720p. One little glitch I found was it disconnecting randomly. I might do a total restore on my phone because of alot of themes. What are you running on your phone? (are you rooted? Roms/themes)

    I usually just unplug it from the hdmi, has your phone force-reset after unplugging it ever?
