But in that thread they recommended a device like this which will convert the HDMI signal to an analog vga signal. It seems that no matter what, you will need to get a powered converter to accomplish what you want.

    There also seems to be a small rumor that Moto may have a cable come out to deal with this situation as well but not much info on it. Rumor came from a rep I guess.

    Hope this helps.
    I'm going to buy one of the HDMI-VGA converters since I can do it on my work's dime and we have both Xooms and iPad 2's here that could utilize it. I'll let everyone know how well it works.

    You could possibly run into HDCP issues. I'm pretty sure anything with any kind of HDMI port on it has to support HDCP, which has a way of causing all sorts of problems. In theory the HDCP bit should only be on for copyrighted material such as movies. In practice it is often left on all the time no matter the content. It is one of those brilliant innovations that hasn't stopped a single person from pirating a movie but causes all kind of problems for legitimate consumers. It would be interesting to know if it works on the Xoom and iPad.

    I looked into something similar a while ago, I was trying to go from the Xoom to a monitor with a DVI input though.I bought a HDMI to DVI adapter and was a bit perplexed when it didn't work. I did a bit of research and found out it requires 5 volts to power it and this isn't being transferred by the output of the Xoom's HDMI cable. I did find this device that outputs the required 5 volts but the price wasa little steep and I wasn't willing to test it out:
