The Samsung Innov8 does not come with a TV out cable included – a fact which worried me a bit when I ordered the handset. Especially since none of the Innov8 user manuals or guides currently available mention the TV out function.
You never know with these things – maybe you need some special cable that is both expensive and hard to get. That was the case with the Samsung SGH-x820. The x820 is capable of both TV out and USB storage, but did not come with cables for neither. These have to be bought separately and are relatively expensive.
One of the first things I did after receiving the Innov8 was therefore to try to hook it up to a TV set using the Nokia CA-75U video connectivity cable that comes included with most Nokia N series handsets.
I am very happy to report that the Innov8 works perfectly with the Nokia cable.
The next thing I did was to test the Innov8’s DivX playback (the Innov8 has built in support for DivX and Xvid) by playing some of the DivX videos, I have created for the DivX Mobile Player using SUPER.
The ones I tried worked very well as can be seen in the images in this post. When starting a video in RealPlayer the TV out signal is automatically switched to full screen landscape mode.
