    ...why 'cringe'?...use a good Bluetooth controller, and you have one of the world's smallest HD gaming consoles...

    I'm not sure I quite get the issue you're having. I watch movies on the Q10 using the hdmi and the image is in it's native resolution on the TV. No stretching. Make sure you're using the "PlayOn" option.

    Frosty White Q10/10.3.0.1052
    I have downloaded movies with BBWorld. I tried to play a movie using "playon", and to the untrained eye, there would be no issue. But there is a slight amount of distortion in the frame that is not a result of the TV or getting any settings wrong. I've brought this up before and I've gotten confirmation of similar issues from other forum members. The distortion didn't bother my family, but it bothered me so much that I had to stop the movie and order it again through my cable provider (fixing the problem).

    Though it could have been an isolated issue with BBworld movies and not the actual bb10 hdmi output.

    Interesting. Good to know.
    I just tested up my movies, but don't have BBworld Movies to test.
    Couldn't find any distortion. I imagine that it's just my "untrained" eye. Or maybe, I'm guessing it might be an issue with BBWorld movies, or maybe the OS version.
    Whatever the issue, I hope it's fixed soon for those of you experiencing it.

    Use mine for work all the time!

    I'm a fitness instructor, Instruct Spinning classes twice a week. For the class I make my own music playlists and plug my phone into the TV behind me, with the music playing and artwork on the screen.
    Z10/ and now my Z30 have never let me down yet!

    Works really well! Also just one more reason that I won't be leaving BB10 anytime soon.

    Although I'll be unhappy if there's no Z30 replacement in early 2015, even a Z10 replacement would do me. Just do not want a Qwerty ever again!

    Yes, a fair bit but I use DLNA too when available.

    Both work great.

    I used mine for viewing movies from BB World, watching videos taken on the phone, and a slideshow of photos all through the big screen TV. I should try it with games. I think other phones are remiss in not having hdmi.

    I use it for presentations at school, and to show pics to my entire family (if I'm over at an aunt or uncle's house etc). On occasion I'll use it for games (connected to my Moga Pro). Super useful, imo.

    Cut the chord, but I'm a sports fan, so I use it quite frequently to put ESPN3 on my TVs with the Playbook. I'll also add that the Playbook does it better than when I use it on the Fire HD. On the Fire the screen truncates (somewhat of a letterbox) and the permanent little tab never goes away on the screen.

    So, yes and always on the Playbook. Heck watching the Spain vs France FIBA replay as I type this with this method.

    Me for showbox / Netflix before I got a chrome cast

    Worked alright, very hit and miss I'd say with the hdmi cables, films would start crackling for no reason and sound quality was up and down..... all resolved just by taking the cable out and putting it back in but still an annoyance.

    Personally i would recommend using Miracast or another device like chrome instead of hdmi cables.

    I have, a few times. The HDMI out is simply not good enough for watching movies, however. My Q10 slightly distorts the image by stretching it wider than what is natural, and this is enough for me to not want to have anything to do with it (being a filmmaker, these things bother me a lot).

    It's nice for music, though, especially in hotel rooms.

    The Q10 is not stretching it, your tv is. Turn off the option that makes any input into it widescreen, leave it on the setting that keeps the source aspect ratio...

    Hm, I pretty much almost always notice distortion. It's why I can't stand watching movies shot on cameras made by GoPro... I've never noticed any distortion in the videos I've played using my Q10 onto a tv...

    I used it a couple times, not out of utility or anything but just for the sake of using it.

    Videos on a big tv screen don't show up in better resolution or anything they just show up as a stretched version of the tiny 4.2" screen so it's pretty much worthless for watching anything longer than a short youtube video

    Very frequently. I'm at a loss as to why they aren't including HDMI with the Passport and Classic ?.

    I use it to play movies in hotel rooms (those that don't block use of Hotel hdmi input on true tv's), play movies & videos at home, and to run PowerPoint presentations during meetings. Easier than carrying around a laptop.
