I was wondering if it would be possible to get the HTC incredible rom and extract the TV out APP from it. Just wondering if this has been discussed or thought of since it is the first Android device to support it, that I know of.

If the HTC Touch Pro I had could do it and the Hero with the same hardware as HTC TP, It should be possible.

Just a thought.:D

Attached is the TVOUT.apk and TVOUT.odex from the Incredible in a zip file. I just did an adb pull from /system/app, and I have no idea if these will be of any use for you on the Hero, but here you go anyways -- you can give it a shot.

no the incredible does tv out through micro usb. its different from the touch pro 2, this is the cable i think would work with the hero.

Nice find on the cable! I'm terribly interested in doing this as well. I used to be able to stream live hockey games from my Slingbox through my Touch Pro phone to the input on my cars AV deck so my kids can watch the games while I drive, live. It was slick and I really miss that feature. Would be awesome to get it back on the Hero. I heard Sling is putting out an app this summer.

I will try the app and see what happens. The video cables are available to buy for like 15 bucks or so, it only composite but better than nothing. I would like to have this feature to connect to out tv in the break room where I work.

the app wont install through the sync installed on the pc. How do you add apps through ADB?


put app in c:/android-sdk/tools

adb push app.apk /system/app <--Try first

or

adb install /system/app app.apk


You can always type the directorys to an app also like so

adb push c:/users/justin/desktop/Myapp.apk /system/app

Hmmm....I dont have that many apps installed. I wonder if I had APPS2SD running if it might work then? I will try it tommorow. Have to get some sleep. If anyone has a2sd running please try to install this app and get back to me. Thanks.
