Posted in Roku by Darrin Olson on March 5th, 2014

Roku Streaming StickRoku announced on Tuesday the launch of a new Streaming Stick which appears to be taking Google’s Chromecast head on. The new device is not much larger than a USB flash drive and connects directly to a television through an HDMI port, bringing streaming media to your TV through a small, hidden package.

The Roku Streaming Stick also comes with a remote control similar to the existing Roku boxes (minus a headphone jack), and a Micro-USB connector for power. It also gives you access too all of the 1,200 streaming media channels that Roku has to offer including YouTube through 1080p and supported by dual-band WiFi.

Compared to Google’s Chromecast this adds a remote, more channels and an extra $15 is cost for the device. The only thing it really can’t access that Chromecast can is your Google Play media …

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on October 18th, 2010

NOOSY China is an unauthorized third-party Apple accessory manufacturer who has come up with a HDMI adapter for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch (4G). It will allow you to output the display of your device to your larger HD display.

However it isn’t clear if the adapter will support audio over HDMI or not. We also aren’t sure if it supports DRM protected content over HDMI, but the site shows images of Star Trek on the iPad and on a connected TV so there ya go.

Samsung Galaxy S will do MicroUSB to HDMI for Video Out

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2010

Samsung’s Galaxy S was originally only able to do video out using a 3.5mm audio jack, which is fine, but not if you want to output high-resolution videos. But now Samsung has introduced a Micro USB to HDMI cable that should make viewing videos from your Galaxy S on your HDTV much easier. We didn’t know that was possible, but we’re game.

The cable will cost $50 and will be compatible with Galaxy S phones like the Samsung Vibrant and Samsung Captivate from T-Mobile and AT&T.

Onkyo HDMI-connected 10.1-inch picture frame

Posted in Digital Photo Frames by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2010

Onkyo’s LPF10M01 is basically a netbook screen without the netbook. 10.1 inches of LED-backlit LCD with a resolution of 1,024 x 600 and 250 nits of brightness and a 500 to 1 contrast ratio. The interesting part is the HDMI input, which is something you don’t normally see in picture frames.

There’s also a USB port, SDHC and Memory Stick card reader, and 512MB of integrated memory. It could be nice as a secondary display with it’s 140 degree horizontal viewing angle and 110 on the vertical axis.

Motorola Droid X HDMI Output only supports pics and videos taken on the device

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2010

Word on the street is that Motorola’s Android-powered Droid X is crippled. While it isn’t shuffling around on a pair or crutches or sitting on shelves in tiny wheelchairs, it does have certain limitations when it comes to HDMI output.

A developer is quoted as saying that the only time the HDMI driver on the device is enabled is when it’s in the gallery mode, which is the native photo and recorded video viewing application. This might mean that users will not be able to copy their high-definition videos into the Droid X and have it played back via the HDMI output.

HDMI to be replaced with HDBaseT?

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on July 4th, 2010

The HDMI standard has been targeted for assassination. The killers? LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Valens Semiconductor. They have introduced a brand new audiovisual standard, called HDBaseT.

Don’t worry, this will not likely introduce a new kind of cable to your home. Instead of a new connector, it is based on the Cat 5e/6 network cables, commonly referred to as ethernet cables. The cable can pass HD and 3-D video signals, as well as data through an integrated 100MBit Ethernet connection. That feed should allow for new internet-connected TV services, like Google TV.


Dell Streak docking station with HDMI output

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2010

What’s this? Some pictures of the docking station and an interesting case for the upcoming Dell Streak have now surfaced. A docking station for a 5-inch device was a given, but it’s awesome that the docking station offers an HDMI connector, allowing you to hook the device up to a larger display.

Other connectors in the dock include a line-out port and USB. There’s also the protective case for the Streak, with a built-in kickstand so you can enjoy your videos.

Wii2HDMI converts your Wii’s output to HDMI

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

It stinks that the Wii is only 480p. What can you do? Well, it turns out that now you can buy this converter, which promises to solve the problem. Wii2HDMI converts your Wii’s output to HDMI. The Wii2HDMI is compact and won’t clutter up your gaming area.

It’s only $39.95. There’s a slight problem though. The Wii itself is only capable of a max output of 480p. You could just as easily use a component cable. This does work with a DVI monitor though.

Posted in Receivers by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

Apple prepping first Mac Mini with HDMI?

Posted in Mac by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2010

A Mac mini with HDMI seems like common sense, even if Apple hasn’t delivered so far. But that may change soon, according to AppleInsider, who were told by “two people familiar with the matter” that prototypes of a Mac mini with an HDMI port have been showing up in the inner circles.

One of these prototypes is apparently based on NVIDIA’s MCP89 chipset, but Intel’s ongoing licensing dispute with Nvidia will prevent Apple from using the MCP89 chipset alongside its latest generation of Nehalem-based Core i3, i5 and i7 processors if it is the chipset used in the final product.

Posted in Camcorders by Conner Flynn on February 20th, 2010

HP has announced the new V1020h, which records at 720p and is a SDHC card-reading pocketcam. It also sports a built-in USB plug and an HDMI port to preview media at native resolution. But the best feature is that it costs just $109.

We don’t have much info on the V1020h’s specs yet though, but at that price it’s already looking like a great deal. Hopefully you like that purple color. If so, it will hit shelves this summer.

Sony’s first 3D receiver for $500

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on February 18th, 2010

3D is a real pain in the ass. First, all of this new fancy 3D equipment is costing you a lot. But it’s not just the price. Your receivers can’t pass 3D signals because they aren’t equipped with HDMI 1.4. Here’s some more bad news. Only one of Sony’s 4 new receivers supports 3D.

The 7.1 channel, 110W STR-DN1010 will be Sony’s “affordable” 3D receiver. It will cost you $500 when it becomes available this June. It’s the first to support HDMI 1.4 3D pass-through technology over 4 HDMI ports.
