Default [REQ] avatar tv out fix?

Hey, I have searched and searched and found nothing referring much to the avatar tv out. I have tv out and I know it is posted that we cannot run avatar through the tv out. my question is can anyone make it possible to run avatar with tv out? I know nothing about programming and I don't know if the app that connects to the movie file can simply be edited to allow for tv out access. If it can be done can someone please tell me how? I apologize in advance if this topic has already been discussed but I have not seen it anywhere. Thanks for your help.

Nope its DRM protected. The only way to do it is buy the DVD and rip a non DRM copy to your computer the put it on your phone.

that's what I was afraid of but thought it was worth a try to see if anyone could "crack" it. Thanks for the quick reply.

I wonder if the micro-to-hdmi plug would allow it?

I do not have the cable for that yet. You'll have to let me know if it works for you if you try it.

That's gonna be really interesting to find out - technically, it SHOULD, since the video never has to enter the analog domain and can remain copy protected throughout. But then again, you never know...

I believe it uses HDCP so no you won't get much flexibility out of it. It's amazing how much effort they will go through to prevent you from watching your movie on your devices - especially when you consider that it takes 5 minutes to find a 20GB Avatar torrent, throw it to handbrake, and get a higher quality rip that you CAN stream wherever you want.

Just go around their BS until they get the message and just cut it out.
