    Concern regarding HDMI output

    Last night i hooked up my xoom to my tv for the first time. All was going well and looked amazing until i tried using the native you tube app. While i was trying to load a video the screen on both the xoom and the tv started flashing black intermittently and then the xoom rebooted itself. Once the xoom rebooted i tried it again and it did the same thing. It also flashed and rebooted while using the web. After about 3 reboots it started working but still occasionally flashed the black screen while trying to load the video. Now here is the kicker, it would only do it while using the native you tube app or while typing in the browser. Accessing you tube through the browser worked just fine. Also after unplugging my xoom and trying the native you tube app again, it worked just fine, no flashing or rebooting. Has anyone else experienced problems or do i have a defective xoom?

    I don't think it's your Xoom per say. It has something to do with the Youtube app not optimized to work with the HDMI out capabilites. I'm sure it will be fixed soon enough.

    The HDMI is designed to work with videos YOU recorded on your device

    Works and "designed to work" with are two different things. But if it is designed to do so, and not locked down like on the Droid X, that would be awesome. Being it is on VZ I have my doubts it will continue to work.

    Wow I am impressed it seems everything does work with an HDMI cable. There is no lag either!

    the micro hdmi I use (originally for my DX and fits it fine) seems loose on the Xoom and I have to hold it just right for it to work.
