TV Out Function?

Jan 8, 2011, 10:19 PM
Hey all. I currently use HTC's Touch Pro 2 which uses the charging/data port as the TV Out port as well. All info I've seen on HTC's new 4G phone for Verizon, the ThunderBolt here, points to the lack of an HDMI port. Instead, it uses DLNA for TV Out. My question for anyone who knows is: Does the ThunderBolt use the charging/data port for direct TV Out as the Touch Pro 2 does or is the TV Out function only through the DLNA feature? Thanks...

Replying to my own question. I emailed HTC directly in regards to my TV Out question so I thought I'd put the answer on here for those of you who may be wondering the same thing. HTC told me the only means of TV Out on the ThunderBolt is by the DLNA feature. The charging/data port is just that, for charging & data transfer to/from your computer. BUMMER!

I realy don't see this being a problem in fact it is an advantage you now won't have to have a tv with hdmi ports so it will not only work with tv's that have the dnla feature but will even work with older tv's that don't, by adding a dlna adapter.
