Real HDMI App for DROID X Unlocks HDMI Magic

Time to take your Droid X and use it’s HDMI out feature the way it was meant to be used through Real HDMI.  From developer Gman comes the first app which allows you to hook up your DX, see the display simultaneously on your TV and take full advantage of its awesomeness.

There are a few limitations, but remember that this is brand new and will continue to get better through time.  If you have a Droid X, this is definitely worth your money.

Video Action:

In Market for $1.99.

    So if I get that app I can plug my hdmi cord from my phone to tv and it will actua??lly work

    • Anonymous

      Wow! Welcome to the party. Just Kidding. Actually this app works pretty well. Yes, it will hook your phone up to your TV. One thing, it does not mirror. Once you get a little practice though, you will be playing Angry Birds or Netflix ala bigscreen in no time. Get your cord at http://www.Monoprice.com or Amazon for the cheapest prices. If you spend more than 5$ you spent too much! 

  • KRH

    It’s 3.99, not 1.99

  • This should be FREE until the phone actually displays what is on the TV! Not gettin’ my $2!

  • Walter

    This app has poor video quality.  How can this be corrected.  The HDMI is disabled on the app.  WHY

  • Walter

    Why is the HDMI – marked disabled on the ReaL HDMI App. and how did i get it on.

  • Well That's great..but gets your attention and says Hey, look at me, im Droid-Life dammit. Is this from one of our own Droid-Lifers? thanks

  • Alexlramirez76

    still not good enough, does not do mirror images on what u=you see on the screen, you haave to play the guessing game with the phone.

  • Briandarby Totalcontrol

    Please bring the app back!! Looks awesome

  • Have a Droid X and want to port your screen over to your 50 inch HDTV with an HDMI cord? Well there is an app called Real HDMI that will allow you to do so

  • Dillydally_3223

    The app isn't available in the market where do i get it

  • DroidXman

    This website is celebrating something that it appears, is no longer available…

    Does anyone know how I can get a copy for my Droid X?

    Market no longer has anything like it. I've been searching for 2 days.

  • DroidXman

    I used the download from above and though it was “there” a week ago, now it comes up “there are no matches in Android Market for the search: real hdmi – then it gives suggestions.

    What happened to the offering for Real HDMI?

    On Droid X 2.2.

  • Firingrange_dc

    Download link is broken!

  • Buckgrad

    Looks like they pulled it from the market… Anyone know if there is somwhere else to pick it up?

  • Doug Verner

    So what if I use a bluetooth KB/Mouse and a terminal app into a virtual desktop? Could this be used to replace desktop/laptop computers with a droid x??

    When I am in YouTube watching a video on the TV with this app I get two black bars on the screen which came out to be the On and Off buttons on the app. Also when I go full screen I get a outline of the smaller screen in the middle of the video.

  • Rolo72

    USER TIP FOR SEMI-MIRRORING (don't know if mentioned already so bare with me). If you want to see a mirrored keyboard, for instance, just make sure the “shake” feature is enabled and shake your phone to disable the hdmi output temporarily, bring up the keyboard on your X, then shake it again to enable the hdmi output. You will now have a frozen keyboard on your X while typing. This also works well for emulators.

  • Warren Peace

    Anyone try it with Hulu or something similar?

  • Jdstell

    That's what I thought. That app is soft of cool, yet it's very counter intuitive.

  • javaCoder

    I would only want this to watch the NFL app. Have we confirmed that it doesn't work? I know one other said it didn't but did the NFL app work for anyone with this app?

  • wow, excelent app!

  • neilmettheworld

    Needs some work, but so far looks like a great app.

  • Touchnyasoul

    Just downloaded, it, I can't see any of the vidoes, NFL Mobile, Can't Play any Music (except midi's). All this program will do right now, which is kinda usless (cause you have to guess at where to touch your screen) is move around the menu. I saw the youtube video but im not one who watches youtube.

    I would wait, unless you wanna just play with it for the heck of it.

  • While this app is pretty cool in concept I think it will be downrated into oblivion in the app store on a count of the screen to screen discrepancy.

  • Chris Nimon

    That new intro is very nice. gets your attention and says Hey, look at me, im Droid-Life dammit. Is this from one of our own Droid-Lifers?

  • The app is a “beta” which means it's still a work in progress. The dev is very open stating it as so. It's pretty prmosing IMO and at minimum shows we have the right capabilities there.

    • Marcelonav69

      Then why charge for a “beta” app…most beta apps are free

  • Jdungan69

    I have to say I like this app quite a bit but I have 2 black bars on the screen. Anyone else have this issue and if so is there a fix? Its not a deal breaker or anything just curious.

  • Ryan

    would it be possible to record the videos with the phone in a dock or similar? The amount of motion and shaking the phone makes my eyes bleed (not to mention the lame intro). Not trying to troll, just offer some constructive criticism as I love this blog.

  • Dean2359

    why do i have thick black bars when i play a youtube video?

  • lvmydroid

    Well, I'll get to try it out on wednesday when my X comes. Just got an email this morning saying it had been shipped. My original ship date was sept. 7th so +1 for both VZ & motorola for getting shipments out early !!

  • Sucks that you can't actually see what you're typing on the phone. I know that's probably coming in a update but it seems like that's a pretty basic feature that shouldn't have been left out of the initial push.

  • WhereIsTony

    Warning do not attempt to flip your plasma TV into portrait mode.

    • what will happen, because i have a plasma and was gonna try this out

  • rals

    You think if you had auto rotation set on launcher pro, that the image would be adjusted as well on the tv?

  • tiptoptommy

    That's pretty sweet can't wait to see how much better it gets. Hope that PSP Droid phone has HDMI that would be even sweeter

  • This is nice 🙂

  • Pattont

    This would be pretty cool to video chat once you had the call initiated.

    • Legoturtle92

      lol who needs 2 facing cameras for video chat not the droid x lol

    • Timoh

      Or you could use your laptop with a webcam, since you're at home and all…

  • RumbaCembe

    The drum intro is very much similar to what we do on ceremonial days in my village

  • DeathofGrim

    That's one sweet intro

  • Steve H

    Why do you have to navi-guess on the phone? Shouldn't the app run in the background so the phone will mirror the display that is being displayed on the tv?

    • Timoh

      It's still new, I bet the dev is already working on that but just wanted to release it now because a lot of people are waiting for something like this.

    • Jdstell

      That's what I thought. That app is soft of cool, yet it's very counter intuitive.

    • Sly51386

      i think thats the only thing rong with it. but im having a prob play this tvshow app. any help?

  • Scea0512

    OK just checked it does not work with the Blockbuster app and this is disappointing !!!

    • DeathofGrim

      Lol that's fail. You bought a movie for nothing

      • Dean2359

        Can you play videos taken on the phone thru the tv?

        • Timoh

          That's the only thing you can do by default. This opens it up a little more.

          • Dean2359

            Hmmm I was only able to view my pictures,I couldnt watch my videos. Not sure what i'm doing wrong

          • Dean2359

            got it. I was trying to use the old D1 gallery for videos. Doesnt work

      • Scea0512

        No actually did not buy a movie but I was given a free download and thats what I tried to use ? it does not work so I refunded the app that would be my onlu use for that app , I can watch other movies with my HDMI cable just fine without the app

  • looks rather awesome.

  • Maizekid

    Sweet. I'm also hearing that emulators work well

  • gamboo

    Love the droid life intro! Awesome app. That's enough brown noising for the day.

  • JoE

    Nice!

    • jiggaman508
