    I have read that the HDMI port is proprietary with a special adapter, a la Apple. But, saw close up in video and it appeared to be a microHDMI. It wasn't the best angle, but it had the right shape. Any ideas? I haven't found a good picture and specs are not listing microHDMI. They list it as "proprietary HD digital AV adapter". Or something to that effect.

    It supposedly supports standard microUSB-to-HDMI. Im hoping for confirmation.

    It is standard micro-HDMI. I bought a micro-hdmi to hdmi 6ft cable from amazon and it works wonderfully. I plug my surface into my HDTV and stream Netflix and Hulu onto my bigscreen...its honestly like a dream come true.

    As the other users have mentioned, it's just a standard micro HDMI port, any $3 microHDMI to HDMI cable will work just fine with it.

    I could confirm that regular micro HDMI cable to HDMI works fine

    For clarification, the Surface RT has a microHDMI port, not microUSB.

    Yes, it is microHDMI. Not all apps are compatible with all devices. Many apps require a minimum of 1366 x 768 leaving many 720P devices useless.
