12 posts in this topic

On these new cell phones u can watch tv on them. Is there a way to hook a razr phone to a tv. Thinking that would be a good way to watch tv while ice fishing

Not much help but I doubt a Razor would have a TV Tuner Card in it!

If you have a good data connection a Slingbox could be an option if you have the right phone. If you don't have an EVDO data rate it's not worth trying since you need a fast data rate to keep the picture smooth. The screen isn't super large of course, but it would be an alternative. There isn't a way to connect a cellphone to a TV yet...but I hear there is something coming.....

I doubt there is a TV tuner card in your phone so no video out.

No you can't do that on your Razor.

Verizon has two Samsung phones that are capable of receiving their TV programming. They currently have 11 channels. More phones coming in the future. Only problem is that you need to be in EVDO reception area which is the immediate Minneapolis area, nothing outstate.

You can however take any video, DVD etc and convert to 3gp or 3g2 format and then save it to a microSD card and watch on your razor.

I currently have a bunch of fishing, tv, comedy videos on my phone, including entire movies like Napoleon Dynamite, and episodes of King of Queens etc.

Google "Howard Forums" and learn everything you would ever need to know about cell phones.

Although if you went that route and Ipod, mobile DVD player or simuliar device would be a better option in my opinion.

Oh great.... one more means by which drivers can be distracted - watching TV on their cell phones....

"But Officer, I was trying to watch the traffic report so I could avoid the jam. I didn't mean to cause this one."

Mind you, I'm not saying YOU will do that, it's just a general comment.

I have Sprint TV on my Palm Treo. It is not all that great. It was cool at first and the NFL network is nice during the fall out on hunting trips for keeping up with fantasy players, but that is about the only time I use it.

Bush-

Do you pay extra for the Sprint TV or is that included in the data plan?

I appoligize, I totally misread your question.

I doubt highly that you could get a signal from your phone to a TV.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect
