The cable you need is micro-HDMI to HDMI.  As a general rule, HDMI
connectors can roughly be broken down like this.

full size HDMI - Displays, Set-top boxes (cable, blue-ray, etc), full-size
desktops and laptops.
mini HDMI - Digital camcorders (there are some other oddball hardware but
very rare)
micro HDMI - smart phones, tablets, laptops

Then if your monitor or TV supports 720p, 1080p, or another CEA standard
resolution then things should just work.

Note: If you have a B1 XO4 then you will need to cut back the jacket on the
micro-hdmi end of the cable so it can plug further into the chassis.

Hope that helps.
