I came across an interesting video on YouTube.  I like the gadget, but not the price.

 

 

Some TI'ers here are already running VGA to HDMI converters.  Over the past couple of years, the prices have been coming down, even on one of the originals like the << Sewell Hammerhead >>.

 

Some of us here run these << Vic Tsing >> units which are still less expensive than the Hammerhead.  

 

So, has anyone come across a cheap Chinese copy of the Wireless HDMI transceiver unit that also has zero latency?  

 

People with F18A's & converters could use it now, but if/when the F18A MkII comes out, it would be a nice addition.  Wires suck, but I doubt many of us are willing to spend $250.00 to eliminate a single cable.

I made a wireless HDMI recommendation in another thread.  The for this unit is not so bad if it delivers on promises.  The system I use is about $189 or so and allows you to link up to five transmitters and a local HDMI source.

When are you going to get the HDMI TI-99/4A project completed?

About that.. bad taste in my mouth.  Everything *WAS* working, but decided to get the audio hooked up internally as well, but decided to get a little help (shouldn't have) the guy hooked something up wrong (probably the 12V lead) and now the F18A does not work.  It's still sitting in a box in the den and I lost interest.

Matt will repair F18As for minimal cost, just reach out to him. He has fixed boards that people have outright blown chips on before. ;)

Anyone know the timeline for the newly developed HDMI F18A?

Ever since I installed my one F18A I’ve been unwilling to tolerate even the best RF output.

Well technically *I* did not screw it up, someone else did.  Everything was working fine until the other person laid hands on it.  So no, after flushing around $140.00 bucks I did not want to throw any more money at it.
