    I have the Acer Iconia tab a500.

    I want to send video from my tab to the tv. I have teh hdmi cable. Bought a new one from comp usa this weekend.

    I connect the cable and play the movie but nothing comes out. When I try to select the hdmi port on the tv it says nothing is connected.

    So could I have a bad cable?
    Bad hdmi port?
    Something has to be turned on on the tablet?

    I have googled the heck out of this and looked in the setting etc. nothing that says hdmi.

    Also I called acer and they said this was out of scope of support that I and refered me to some other number and they wanted 150$ to support me. Not going to happen.

    This is a function of the tablet so I wouldl expect them to support it.
    I even truned ont eh media server sw to see if that was the issue.

    anyone know how to get this to work?

    Thank you.

    So i finally got someone from Acer to talk to me and I figured this out. It looks like the push they did over the weekend caused many problem on the tablets. I had to reset back to factory to get this to work.

    So I guess we have to wait fro someone to fix the fix for this os.
