Is there such thing as micro USB to HDMI cable? I am talking about cable that would connect to micro USB port on HTC Desire S and to HDTV so i can see what i see on smartphone's screen on HDTV.

I know about USB to HDMI adapter but it costs ~$70. However i thought maybe there is a cable that would allow me to do same thing?

Thanks.

The desire s doesn't have a tv out feature so as far as I'm aware even if there was such a cable then it still wouldn't be possible,

You can however stream media from your desire s using DNLA to comaptible devices such as PS3, xbox360, certain tvs etc.

So if smartphone does not have HDMI out then that means it does not have TV OUT?

MHL means micro usb to hdmi. It works with "extmicrousb" port. Desire S has just "microusb" port. DLNA is a good idea

Only newest televisions support DLNA and DLNA adapters cost a lot.

Dlna adaptors are the only way to do it with a stock rom. But I am unsure of whether an application exists that will let us connect the phone using a cable.
