    I am using the VGA version on a monitor that doesn't have HDMI and it works really well. As does the HDMI version on my TV. And the cheaper one on Amazon, labeled as Slimport/MyDP (it did not say DisplayPort) So far doesn't work, although it did briefly so there is a certain degree of quality required, imo. What I do notice in many regards is that my Z30 with 10.2.1 works better and is of better quality, when it comes to output of video and works better with my bluetooth mouse as well. My feeling is that there will be upcoming OS upgrades that improve this just like there was with previous versions of 10.1 and 10.2.x. The video in the link above also supports paying a little extra for quality and I would have to agree.

    Rockin with my Passport and Z30!

    But when I can't do miracast and do use the Slimport adapters, I can run my Passport remotely with my new bluetooth keyboard and mouse; connected via VGA even (and a bluetooth Bose Soundlink mini speaker), and easily do presentations or demos, or work on documents, email, chat... using an HD monitor (or older 4:3 monitor even).

    The more stuff that supports "play on" in the passport, the better it will be for video and it seems some web based video does and some doesn't.

    The pp is better showing stuff that doesn't work well in landscape (portrait is how anything at the OS level is displayed in BB10), but anything in landscape that doesn't support "play on" is better using my Z30 (using miracast or HDMI (and with bluetooth keyboard and mouse too if I want)).

    As a quick note, I have connected my high speed charger though my Slmport adapter while playing video and it charges very quickly, no issues.

    Sounds like current iteration 10.3.0 on the Passport doesn't support any output ratios other than 1:1. Hopefully they update that soon.

    One of the youtube videos mentioned the rate of charging port on the Slimport is more like USB rate. I guess that's not true...thanks for clearing that up.

    I bought the Push2TV 3000 from Amazon for $50 about 2 weeks ago. It shows $70 at the moment. I guess keep your eyes open for a Black Friday deal.

    What? That's outrageous! it's was around $50 last week and I thought it's was expensive. Amazon pricing is dynamic based on number of buyers I guess which could be good or bad.

    I bought my PushToTV 3000 for $40 in BC Canada from ncix.com. Cheaper here is not common on stuff like this.
