    Will HDMI to Lower Resolution TV

    I've connected my Xoom to a 1920x1200 HDMI TV, and it works fine.

    But when I connnect it via HDMI to a 1365x768 TV, I get no picture. Does the Xoom not down-convert in this case?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    It actually has nothing to do with the picture format the Xoom sends to the TV. The TV will adjust the 1080 resolution to fit the screen. Like when you hook a blu-ray player up to a 720 TV and click info on your TV remote your TV will tell you the picture format is in 1920x1080.

    One minor issue I had with the HDMI out is it would not sync everytime. Have you tried unplugging the HDMI, going to the Xoom home screen and then plugging the HDMI in again?

    I'm assuming your TV can support a 1080 input source because most anything with HDMI can. But does a blu-ray player work on the TV?

    Just got a Xoom (lovely!!!) Got a lead tried into my TV, which accepts everything I have, but is a bout 3-4 years old and is "HD ready", so probably only 720X?? resolution and get no signal (or stable). When I connect a PC/ laptop, I have to change the PC resolution, so like the original person asked.... "Does the Xoom not down-convert in this case?", or I would re-word as can I change the output resolution, as I can with a laptop!??

    Maybe I need to sort of down-scaler?

    Thanks, Mick, UK

    the xoom output is 720p hd.so if you had a 720p tv it should fit nicely.

    yes, it works

    Just thought I would update.... it now works.... on my Hitachi 42" 9700 Plasma TV

    I tried it on TV upstairs (a real cheap one!) and it worked, but noticed that the input to the Xoom needed a little extra push! I blame it on my cheap Ebay cable! Anyway, I looked at my Hitachi TV manual and saw that it should handle the HDMI signal from the Xoom and re-tried and making sure it was pushed in and it WORKS brilliantly!!

    REALLY good!!

    Thanks, I will go and have a lurk around the forums!!
