No one ever said DP got pushed out of the market. Maybe you're confused because I said HD-DVD did.My tv does DP, my computer screens. Cellphone does otg MHL.
My nintendo wii and pandora dont do hdmi.
I feel this is the full dvi vs vga all over again, just carry the adapter and let the world move on.
DP didnt get pushed out, it arrived late, meanwhile everyone and thier dog was cursing hdcp.
DP is still winning where it matters. They did this with a more open standard, better backing, better technology, doesn't need new cables every year, and of course, is royalty free.
Edit: it isnt that DP is a must, its that hdmi is a big _must not_ over usb solutions.
How could HDMI be a solution over USB? There will be USB either way, adding an HDMI (or DP) port doesn't take away from that. If you want to buy a relatively expensive USB video adapter and rely on the software to support it that's up to you regardless. Or do you think a lack of TV-out port would mean one more full size USB?
