I don't understand... are people saying you have to use the Microsoft hdmi cable? I already had a micro hdmi to hdmi in adapter.. plugged it into surface, then the hdmi cable into it. There were no problems at all. Everything works and looks great

I purchased the Microsoft HDMI to VGA cable and have exactly the same problem. When plugged into the Surface the connector is really sensitive. When I try to touch the screen the VGA display goes away and then comes back. I also notice that the analog signal strength is less then the laptop. I was hoping to use it in my classroom to replace my laptop but it has a vary intermittent connection with the projector, partly because of the connecor and partly becasue of the low output signa. Using my VGA monitor it connects just fine but flickers as I use the touchscreen. I am frustrated because I purchased the Surface so I could use it in the classroom.

I bought a $4 cable on eBay and it works fine. I haven't had any problems with the integrity of the connector either.
I also have the official Microsoft mini-HDMI-to-VGA connector/converter, and it works great too, and no issues with connection there either.

I had my rt connected to my tv with a £5 hdmi cable for the 1st time last weekend. had to wiggle it about to get a proper connection and had to cut a bit of the casing to make sure the connector was pushed all the way in to the rt to allow audio. it played fine but its not perfect having to wiggle the cable. I also noticed some fuzziness and pixilation on the rt screen. when I disconnected rt from tv. some parts of the screen still had this problem. I restarted the rt and everything seemed to be ok. not happy
