I can't see how they do that - the android model works by building a hardware xml list for the hardware a device supports.

I guess they do a check if hdmi hardware exists here, but the following XML doesn't list hdmi as a core hardware element :


Likely because its part of the overall cpu / gpu chipset. So I guess they are trying to use some other method, which isn't guaranteed to be successful on all hardware and android configurations. Thats likely why it works fine on the hudl 2.

I will check tonight on my MiniX .

Some devices just mirror the tablet on the HDMI out, so maybe that side of things is what works.
