Nope, it is not possible.

The 5800's output was designed to send screen image too, while the standard Android jack output is for sound only.

BUT, with the USB host kernels, and a proper USB hub, you can easily push the signal to your TV.

Does it not also need the correct hardware or chip in the phone? I seem to recall a similar post in XDA-Developers on the G1 many moons ago - don't think anything came from it.

Well, something like that. The phone's jack output must be connected to an image processing unit, and the chip must direct image through the jack connection when called to have image output.

The best you can get from such a cable (I have one too, already tried) is sound output for a stereo device or something like that).

Ah, no - I was meaning that some devices now do video-out via the usb connector. Unfortunately it's not something that can be emulated in software (well, not without a large grant and a team of researchers!) and has to have the chip performing the functions.

Sven has done usb host mode on his Blade.

So the Blade could route video to usb data.

On his website he gives a bunch of details, and for more details and a video, see his N1 page.

This is something waiting to be picked up by a rom Dev ...
