Yes. If there is a "video card" in between them (though there are some limitations).

Is there a relationship between the speed of a USB 2.0 device to your computer????...if hardware processes usb data at what speed??} ****and the quality of a signal from another source directly to an hdmi connector from an HDMi signal?...so if you have an hdmi signal compression alogrithm from a usb device 2.0 will it produce an output commensurate with a hdmi source??? connected to an hdmi output...ON YOUR COMPUTER....
[will i guess that bring up a bigger problem...how much of the hdmi signal are the orignators of the orignal source providing to the file]...in other words ... do you really believe that blue ray's full potential exist for the end user??

I have seen listed on the internet that you can use a USB 2.0 to HDMI Adapter and plug it into you tablet and display the tablet screen picture onto your tv and there is no video card between them only the adapter.
This is no correct then?

I going to say no for tablet use. The reason being that these devices uses a software to help convert the signal to HMDI and since most of these devices are MAC and PC compatible, and I've yet to see it on the tablet side, (with the exception of apple tv) ( thats another story) I will say no.

A USB->HDMI "converter" is a PC-only device. More correctly, it is not a converter so much as it is an "external graphics card" that communicates with your PC over USB. These devices essentially add a second (slowish) graphics adapter to your PC which you can connect to a display via HDMI.

You can't plug USB peripherals into a traditional android / apple tablet, so these don't work on a tablet. The USB port on a tablet is intended to charge it, or to connect the tablet to a computer. The tablet is a USB "device", not a USB "host". A USB->HDMI adapter would not be recognized by the tablet.

Some tablets DO have special cables that allow them to output HDMI, but that is a proprietary feature of the tablet that you need to look into. For example, certain iPads and iPhones support a special Apple AV cable which lets it output an HDMI signal (http://store.apple.com/ca/product/MD098ZM/A/apple-digital-av-adapter)
