Connect Wirelessly CCTV DVR to TV

Mungo 1,534 1,893 August 13, 2015 at 09:08 PM
I'm looking for a way to wirelessly connect a CCTV DVR which only has a VGA output to a TV via HDMI. Is there such a device that would allow me to do so? I would think all I would need would be a VGA wireless transmitter & a HDMI wireless receiver, however I can't seem to locate such a device. Thanks.

If the dvr as an ethernet connection. Get an amazon fire tv stick and run ipcamviewer or tinycam on it and pull a stream from the dvr.

Search google "vga to hdmi"

you might want to save some money, with a long hdmi cable OR a hdmi over cat5 adapters.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately DVR has no I.P. capabilities.

Thanks for the info. That will work, although I'll need a VGA to HDMI converter. Damn these wireless transmitters are hella expensive...

It would probably be cheaper to replace the dvr so you can stream from it...new units will also have hdmi so you can use hdmi over ethernet or hdmi over tcp/ip...

This - Sounds like the current DVR is mostly analog in its output.

OP How long of distance are you looking to stream wirelessly?

go buy those wireless display devices. That is the only option I see. If this dvr doesn't have an ethernet port than its an older model so you'll need to use a vga wireless display.

Something similar to this project I just googled.

Yeah...good quality analog units are about 100 dollars for 8ch systems.
This might also be a good opportunity for OP to replace the system with hd over coax (TVI, CVI) or IP if running new cable is not an issue.

Yes it's mostly analog in it's output thus this issue. I'm looking to stream the output to an upstairs TV so distance wise is not that far but is going from downstairs to upstairs.
