Default [MOD][Feb 14 2012] tbalden's mt4gs bruteforce TV-out app 1.2 beta

tbalden's mt4gs bruteforce tvout


Standalone tvout app runnable from Terminal Emulator.


If you're on stock Doubleshot roms and its derivatives you most probably DON'T need this app, it will work out of the box!
This app won't work on any other device, if it doesnt have an identical PAL/NTSC tvout graphics device of /dev/graphics/fb1



INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Download the flashable, install from your Recovery.
2. Install Terminal Emulator
3. If you don't have busybox with your ROM install busybox (https://market.android.com/details?id=stericson.busybox) (pyroice roms all have it)
4. Plug in your Jack-AVC composite cable to your TV properly, turn on TV to the right mode. only AFTER that, plug in your cable to the phone's jack.
5. Start Terminal Emulator,
6. and according to your tv standards type in one of the appropiate command:


PAL
Code:
~ stvpal
NTSC
Code:
~ stvntsc
PAL-N
Code:
~ stvpaln
PAL-M
Code:
~ stvpalm
It will ask for Root permissions. Grant it!
Will start soon. Enjoy!


On my HDTV i could only test stvpal, probably it will work on any HDTV. If using with older TVs, please report back if one of these scripts works for the tv. Not that I can fix it, but im curious. :P

The app will stop if you plug off the cable. Restart the app if you replug.

DEVS, PLEASE DON'T INCLUDE THIS IN YOUR ROMS. Rather link to this post.



For best results use it with Pyr'o'Ice ICS 1.0.2 or Pyr'o'Ice Sense 1.0.1, as audio-to-tv most probably won't work with other ROMs.


KNOWN ISSUES:


- Glitches some apps, especially those that use Alpha/Transparency in 2D.
- Glitchy with Live wallpapars and launcher transitions
- Frame rate is sometimes lagging, but since 1.1 much better
- Audio out might not work to tv (it works with Pyr'o'Ice ICS 1.0.2 and Pyr'o'Ice Sense 1.0.1)
- check the youtube video above to see how it works

BE AWARE THE APP IS USING YOUR CPU EXTENSIVELY, SO IT'S ADVISED TO USE YOUR CHARGER IF USING FOR EXTENDED TIMES!


DONATION:


Please consider donation if you like how the app works with your phone, it took a big heap of time to work on this! Also hit the Thanks button if you like this.

DEVS, PLEASE DON'T INCLUDE THIS IN YOUR ROMS. Rather link to this post.


Advice:

- For gallery camcorded video playback the Gingerbread movie playback seemed to work better (no black glitches), while ICS had some troubles.
- for video playback you can try different apps. Some might result with more glitches while others with less or none. Let's try to find the best player for this app, if we can.

- some glitches appear momentarily when popups happen like Media volume setting popup.

Btw, look for a cable something like this:



ADDON:

Check this for easier use like a shortcut on your Home screen (needs GScript Lite from market): http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1&postcount=12 Thanks dillalade!

Outstanding!

For a first edition beta - this is awesome.

I'm a PAL tv owner in UK (LG 720p 32" LCD) - stvpal, stvpaln, stvpalm all appear very clear on the TV screen, nice job

As well as the known issues detailed in OP first usage for me illustrates the same 'incorrect' aspect ratio on my TV as your Youtube demo.

By incorrect I mean the horizontal/width is to wide (slight cut off on both left/right side), however the height seems fine.

Very nice Tballer

thanks for testing. Were the original roms tvout picture fitting perfectly?

i hope someone with ntsc or older tv (crt) can test this, but the real fun is to have it on hdtv.

The original stock rom would output the correct apect ratio to the tv (no cut off) perfectly - adjusting portrait/landscape appropriately.

On stock, the output to tv would reflect the correct persepective from the phone. Hence portrait mode on phone comes up portrait on tv (hence central on the tv screen). Again if phone is in landscape mode this is then reflected on tv screen by filling the tv screen in landscape mode without cutoffs.

I am using a HD TV, if that's what you mean.
