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.

i wont struggle with the portrait mode, its pretty much doesnt make sense to have it. but i will look at correcting the ration, although that means loosing data...the tvout device has a bigger screen to fill in horizontal resolution, a shame its not fully displayed on the tvs...

I agree, Portrait mode is perhaps not needed, unless some gamers play some games with preference in portrait mode.

Ratio, frame rate & glitch is all that's desired I guess.

I'm unsure as to why the output to tv is cut off slightly, but I'm sure some tweaking on your end will make good

Edit:
To make usage of this feature a little easier for users, I've created the necessary gscript scripts to fire up your 'tv out app' from either within gscripts or even better - add a homescreen 'gscript widget' for your appropriate tv standard (ntsc or pal/n/m) using the appropriate script for your tv.

The download below is a zip containing a gscript folder itself containing 4 scripts. Unzip this to your root sdcard such you have the gscript folder on your sd then install gscript. (Alternatively extract the individual gscript(s) and place into your pre existing gscript folder if already installed.)

Enjoy

i hope someone with a CRT tv will check this, if there's any at all these days. I want results of that before tweaking the ratios. Till then im looking into mplayer-android and video playback to tvout separately... i can only hope i can compile it... its a rather deserted project since more than a half year

What resolution are you getting once you are connected to an hd tv? This capability always seemed pointless to me. I don't understand what the point is since I would expect bad quality on red/white/yellow cables going into a tv

720x576 in theory. pointless or not, its fun to play games on tv either way. I wish we had the MHL chip, but we have no way to have that confirmed yet... and by default jack tvout is the only option now.

Far from pointeless I think.
Having my slingplayer & plex servers through my phone to any tv under wifi worldwide is nothing but super rich feature.

Nonetheless

Fair play its not mhl but its better then watching lenghty streams on device only - options is what this feature provides.

Oh but havn't we all

I personally don't take my lappy with me everywhere I go... Hence i like that this device can feed any tv with your sdcard vids, youtube, youjizz, pron collection, slingplayer & plex servers allbeit in SD quality.

I have a spare AV lead in my car, for if whenever I'm out at a friends or wherever and we may want to watch some youtube or watch an entire series or movies from my plex servers or my slingplayer via my phone to pretty much any tv.

Point being we don't tend to go everywhere with our laptops. Your scenario illustrates home usage. Where as my angle/perception of this tvout feature is that the device is capable (ok not at 1080p HD but rather SD) of general playback & streaming in an utterly 'mobile manor.'

Which is the feautre rich aspect I refer to. Rather then the loss in signal quality you're stumbling on, I'm more for this feature as an extention to the swiss army type phone we have.

We use our phones in different ways
