Unfortunately it uses 5Ghz and will interfere with 5Ghz WIFI signal. Anyone has real experience on this? Just wonder should I cancel the order.

I have the same question.

i had the same worries also.

This amazon review made me buy it. Ill take my chances, and sell it or give it to a relative it it doesn't work. Now all I need is wireless power, lol

"I am using mine directly beneath my TV....so just a few feet of wireless transmission. I have an entertainment center for DVD, Reciever, transmitter., etc, but I plan to mount TV on the wall. So, using the wireless verifies that all I will need to do when I mount it to the wall is handle hiding the power cord.

Technically, they recommend keeping this away from 5 GHz devices...however, I have wireless speakers and a wireless router running right next to it and have had 0 problems....with all the devices.

It is also recommended to wirelessly transmit with the device as close as possible and as little obstruction as possible. However, I took the Transmitter to the basement with an extension cord and transmitted video to the main floor with no visible problems. I started off directly below my TV, but one floor down in the basement...then walked to the far side of the basement and it had 0 issues. I would estimate this at being about 30 -35 feet before I ran out of extension cords for power.

So, I had really good luck with the device and would highly recommend. When I was reading about it I wasn't sure if all the concerns were going to be a problem. I cannot tell the difference between the wireless transmission and the direct HDMi connection. So, if you are like me and not sure if it will work for your room...get it...and test it...as I think it will work perfectly."

wow. take it easy bud. I missed it when I skimmed it the first time.

I actually caught it when I reread it and was coming to edit the post. jeez
Sorry, didn't mean to jump at you.It's just that it is in the OP's description and mentioned in many reviews very clearly. Its much easier to read a little slower than wasting yours and others time with obvious questions.

A better question would be "Does any SDer actually have this unit, and what range do you get from it in what environment?"

Do you think 19.5V is too much or does the .5 matter? I've got a Dell laptop adapter that I literally put in the trashcan about 15 minutes ago...
It should be fine. At least I used Dell 19.5 adapter on my HP laptop which uses 18v adapter and it has been working 2 years now without burning.

My understanding of the one of the greater advantages of using a 5ghz router is taking advantage of over 130 channels to broadcast over. A standard 2.4ghz router will automatically cycle through 11 channels to find the signal with the lowest packet loss. The higher frequency actually leads to greater signal loss through obstructions, but also makes it ideal for smaller spaces in crowded areas like apartments.

OK here goes......


Quote from anjam View Post :
Thank you for clarifying. Now the tricky question: How would I be able to connect a non-HDMI laptop to the transmitter unit?
Quote from Rhythmic View Post :
Looking at the photos on Amazon, and assuming your laptop has a VGA output, the transmitter looks to have a VGA (RGB IN) port w/ a complimenting audio input. It's the receiver that looks like it is only HDMI, so you'll want to make sure that your monitor or television has HDMI input.
Quote from kumo View Post :
Looks interesting to play with... could be useful as an hdmi converter if anything. Got one, thanks.
Correct! The base unit will accept VGA input and you can use it to convert a VGA signal to HDMI on the other end. And not just VGA but all inputs are converted to HDMI, it appears to do a pretty good job, too!

Quote from xxxHolic View Post :
It was $400?
Sold along side high end LG TVs in its day. I guess there are some people who would pay $400 for taking the input board from the TV and making it wireless.... I can see the rationale, but i like $20 much more Smilie This also explains why they are now $20... retailers and liquidators dumping them since they are proprietary.... or so they think!

Quote from SDRebel View Post :
How is this.for gaming? I have an Xbox that want to connect to a TV that is mounted, with no visible wires
Quote from STi View Post :
Can somebody clarify what is the purpose of this box? I know it is kind of wireless hdmi but how does it work?
*nod* Will work for this purpose. As for the technology it looks like it is a WiDi, but i do not yet know if it can be hacked to link to another WiDi transmitting device (ie laptop with built in WiDi).

One thing to note. Each transmitter and receiver is MARRIED. Do not buy either piece separately unless for parts!!!

range 5ft for 1080 20hz is optimal with no wifi 5ghz or portable 5ghz phones
Quote from travfar View Post :
20Hz. That's crap. Rather run a cable.
Quote from o0oo View Post :
It is from Amazon review
20Hz claim is nonsense. Ive used this device with an xbox 360, bluray and a PC. it is fluid enough to play games without noticing framerate or ghosting issues. I have no reason to believe it is anything other than the 60Hz supported by WiDi.

Quote from Hellyea View Post :
can you hook the transmitter up to a DirecTV box and send the signal to a TV via the receiver in a different room? Does it thus have HDMI input on the transmitter and HDMI out on the receiver?

So heres the bottom line. Room to room is likely going to fail. I would not plan to use this device room to room or even in a well sealed closet without some mods! The high wavelength radio signal AND bandwidth required are too much for going through most walls, you will have poor performance if not in the same room.

When i used this device and really wanted to test the range, i took it outside. But before i did i opened it. Along the way you must remove a large metal shielding... i threw that out, can only hurt range.

Upon further inspection (very interesting board! its basically the entire input side of the TV!) BOTH sides have leads on the main transmitter/receiver boards for 5ghz antennae! I have yet to experiment but i think with antennae you could really really stretch the range of this thing.

So now outside... set the transmitter up at the back of the yard. walked atrix lapdock + receiver across the yard back to the house. 50FT, easy. normal framerate, clear, 1080p video. couldnt go much further without going inside... was ok at first in the kitchen... and then dropped off as i moved around a bit. all or nothing kind of deal, if i kind of aimed the receiver toward the back corner of the yard i would see the hdmi handshake and picture come back...

oh and make the cable documented on avsforum (http://www.avsforum.com/t/1314796...t_22539561) without it youll need to reboot the box and mash the front panel every time you want to change inputs. with the cable you can make a micro controller or PC host issue a command to change the input discretely. i think for most people this is the big hurdle and will dictate if people will really find this useful. ideally you would have a small atmel wth an IR diode listening for codes that would then translate to a serial command issued to the box.

very handy as a analog -> hdmi upscaler. so there is even a place for it in your AV rack even if you dont want your main HDMI run being wireless. Hook the output of the receiver up to one input on your AVR, and analog devices to the base station in the same stack!

all in all buy this to tinker.... its cool technology, and it works pretty well! definately impressed.

if you are an 'end-user' and are scared of voiding warranties, and expect this to be usable out of the box like it does with an LG TV.. dont bother.

Wow, glad this thread showed up... I got one of these free with an LG LED tv I'd bought a couple of years ago, it didn't work. They sent a replacement box, and nothing. Packed it away and forgot about it until a few months ago when I bought another box on Amazon to test for $20 or so. Nothing. Figured out it is a bad mini-HDMI connection on the TV main board. But if I can hack it to run to a standard HDMI plug, I'll be back in business...

no mini hdmi on these units. you may be thinking of the proprietary LG control cable that connects to the TV. this is the cable you must cut to inject power (without modifying the transmitter).

Right, both boxes work fine, but the TV's jack wasn't supplying power to the dongle properly - unless I held it juuuuust right...

Looks like a miniature HDMI plug from what I remember, but yeah, it is the LG control cable plug.

i have 3 of these. works great. if you need switching capabilities there is a thread on AVS forum with how to build a serial cable.
Does it has the Harmony remote code, so we can use the switching function?

there is no IR input on either box.

read the mega post. if the wireless isnt a big deal to you, know the box will convert all analog inputs to hdmi (still over wireless, but nice feature)
