Has anyone tried to connect their Charge to a TV with an HDMI adapter. I purchased an adapter when I bought the charge but when I connect it from the Charge to my TV I receive no picture.

Haven't tried it on this phone yet. Ill use my video cards cable. Seen another displayed on HDMI, my friend chris can but it works on 2 of 3 hdtv sets, and the 36 inch in hsi bedroom won't display the control image. You need to tweak and add an app to see the phone screen and not just content.
By default it doesn't scale all images right.
When we connect to TV what should I see on the TV screen first? Can I see the same screen on the phone ? My see nothing . I when I reboot the phone I see TV change from snow screen to blue screen when I play the video nothing change on the TV When I disconnect the HDMI cable I lost the video sound from the phone. I have the reset the phone to got the sound back is it normal
The first time I connected there was a delay. But afterward it worked perfectly. My Sony Bravia TV screen mirrors everything on my phone. For example, if I am just sitting there looking at my Droid Charge Home screen and the phone is connected to my TV, my mobile phone home screen is dispalyed on my TV. Or if I use my calculator, that appears on my TV, etc.
Incidentally, make sure your TV has been told which input your phone is on, or you won't get anything. For example, in my case, my SONY Bravia has two HDMI inputs, and several other types of inputs. I need to make sure that the TV is looking at the right HDMI input to which my phone is connected, or I won't get anything.
Specifically, the way I have handled this issue is that I have connected one HDMI input (which the Bravia calls "HDMI 1" ) via a standard HDMI cable between my TV and my cable box, and I have connected the other input ("HDMI 2") via a cable with a micro-SD on the end so that I can use it to my phone. Then, when I want to see the input from my Droid Charge on my TV, I must use the OEM control device that came with my TV to open up the MENU and tell the TV which input to use (HDMI 2). Afterward, when I am finished using my phone on my TV monitor and want to and go back to watching cable TV, I need to restore the setting to HDMI 1.
I am able to see the phone screens on the TV display, but not able to resize the image to fit the TV screen. Anyone know how to do this? If possible, my intention is to watch espn live through the phone browser.
I just got a Charge last week and got the HDMI cable last night. Using the HBOGO app, I am able to get video to my TV just fine but I cant get an audio signal. Here's what I tried:
Any thoughts on what's going on with the sound would be greatly appreciated.
Related: Now I also tried to use an audio cable that connects the phone's headphone jack with the TV's audio in port. That did not work either. But I saw in the Android forums that the Charge OS does not support splitting the HDMI output between video and audio - so you can't channel video content to the TV and the audio to your stereo. Looks like someone logged a bug on the Android OS board.
