Has anyone tried getting TV out from Samsung Galaxy Ace??

i have come across many ways of doing this like :-

3.5 mm to RCA (nokia cable) or
micro Usb to Hdmi

Has any one tried these methods?

In the Display settings do you see an option for TV out? Because I'm not sure the Galaxy Ace has video out...

Welcome to the forum though! :)

No there is no option for it in the setting,

i think i would have to take help of a developer who could build a custom Rom which has the Tv out Feature,:android-pirate:
i am pretty much sure that 'Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset' support the TV out feature and for some reason Samsung has not added this feature to the phone

Micro HDMI High Speed Male To HDMI Male Cable - 3 Feet For Samsung - Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830 - Cables (http://www.fommy.co.uk/view-full-page.asp?divid=Samsung&model=Samsung+Galaxy+Ace+S5830&cat=Cables&skuno=99748)i think i would need this cable.

Adding TV out would require a customized kernel with hooks to customized video drivers, and a settings menu modification to enable TV out settings, such as the ability to turn the feature on or off or enable/disable PAL/NTSC. It would also require the physical hardware inside the phone to be correct... where you have a physical connection between the 3.5MM jack and the GPU (in this case the Adreno 200).

All in all, it's a giant task, and I don't think it's possible. I really doubt that the physical hardware is there inside the device. Sorry. :(

EDIT: But I'll look at some datasheets and see what really is possible. Not that I could do it, but what is feasibly possible.
