Re: HDMI over USB-C

Seriously? Is this hardware or just software? I was considering an upgrade from my Z2 Force but sounds like I'm off to Samsung? Say it isn't hardware and there's a fix for Z2 and Z3.......... Please.

Re: HDMI over USB-C

I'd also like to hear an answer to this question.  Is this limitation due to hardware or software?

 

I have a Z3 and bought a cable trusting Moto Z would be at least an capable as others.  This is a disappointment.

Re: HDMI over USB-C

I registered for this forum just to add that I think this is utter garbage. I just got this phone and was extremely dissapointed to find that it could not output video over USB-C, and am now considering returning it.

 

It's 2019, there's no good reason why this phone can't do what a smartphone I bought in 2011 could do over an MHL cable.

The video out is routed over the mod connector. Which is how the instashare projector can function.

Re: HDMI over USB-C

interested to hear how you go with the project!

FYI I've found casting the screen via a chromecast to an HDMI enabled monitor or tv to be a great option...

Chromecast is just a fancy trademark name for communication over internet. It's fine for transferring files and outputing audio/video content.

 

There is a lot of input latency though, compared to a wired connection with DisplayPort or HDMI, so it's not suitable for navigating through the phone from the big screen. You could do it, but it would be unbearably out of sync with your actions.
