I picked up an mhl cable for the samsung galaxy series of phones from ebay last week, charges the one x and plays everything from the screen straight to the TV via HDML, works great. Tried posting a link but less than 8 posts but worth looking on ebay for though.

i don't think its possible. the port on any hdmi output (ie bluray etc) would need to have some sort of power source, the mhl doesnt output enough (if any) power to run the hdmi, hence the requirement for a separate power source.

i use my portable charger to run it, works a treat.

Iphones are able to output hdmi with just an adapter, so i dont see why an one x wouldnt be able to.

In order to do this you need an mhl capable TV. Any TV with HDMI will display video but only TVs certified as mhl capable will charge the device via HDMI.

and if you have a tv with a usb port for flashdrives or external drives next to the hdmi port, would that give power? maybe the output is too low, but it might at least keep the battery from draining right? cause then i could use a short usb cable and avoid having a cable coming from another source. I hate cables but don't trust the media link thing to work well, i've read that it uses some kind of compression for video, and that is a big no no.

Will probably get it tomorrow. Tried a similar one yesterday at my mate's house and it worked fine on his 19' monitor.

Ordered one as well - should have next week so i'll report back how it works out. Was looking for something with a longer cable but at this price cant complain

Did yours work? I bought the same one and it doesn't work, TV recognises the MHL device but the phone doesn't.
