if you have a G1G1 XO you can use ssh to access the XO's commandline and SFTP for file management. There is a VncLauncher Activity the will brodcast the XO screen to another Computer. You can find it here:


Hope this helps,

Which none of these apply to the XO.

Freemor's suggestion of VNC Launcher is the only viable way of getting what you see on your XO to be displayed on a TV.

There are some software usb video devices, but just like the WinModems, they are software driver driven, and of course there are only windows drivers.
