TV-Out on Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant (GT-i9000M)

This past weekend I was looking for something in my cable drawer and found something I wasn't looking for: a cable like this. I remembered that my phone supposedly supports TV-Out and thought I'd try it out.

I was VERY impressed with the results!
On the top row is Cubed (a music player) and the middle three are Widgetsoid menus.

I don't have exactly the right cable, so on my TV in Montreal the output is black & white. I tested it in Saskatoon on my roommate's TV and it worked in colour. Apparently it is missing on a few similar models they made in the states.

It's a neat feature - basically any time you want to show more than one person something on your phone (pictures, a YouTube video, etc), you can just plug your phone into the TV with a $1 cable.
Landscape mode fills the screen.

  1. I do agree with all of the ideas you've presented in your post. They are really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.Google Analytics
