What is blazer buttons set Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter - USB/HDMI Display Adapter Choice of different styles?


      I purchased this adapter blazer buttons set to connect my blazer buttons set desktop PC to the TV in the living room. I blazer buttons set had been running a 25 ft. HDMI cable blazer buttons set across the room blazer buttons set (hidden blazer buttons set under the couch), and have been looking at blazer buttons set viable streaming options for blazer buttons set a while. blazer buttons set I wanted blazer buttons set something blazer buttons set easier and more straightforward than using a blazer buttons set Roku or Fire blazer buttons set TV side loaded with apps for blazer buttons set media, and less troublesome than dragging a wire across the blazer buttons set floor. This adapter seems blazer buttons set to blazer buttons set fit the bill perfectly.The adapter plugs directly blazer buttons set into an empty HDMI port blazer buttons set on one blazer buttons set end, and a USB for power blazer buttons set on the other, which is perfect for the extra unused ports that LG was blazer buttons set kind enough to load my TV up with. Once the blazer buttons set two blazer buttons set connections are made blazer buttons set (there is blazer buttons set a USB blazer buttons set adapter you can use if blazer buttons set you have the wrong end on blazer buttons set your TV), blazer buttons set the TV recognizes it immediately as another blazer buttons set input. After selecting blazer buttons set the correct one, the device takes a few blazer buttons set seconds blazer buttons set to boot up blazer buttons set and put an image on the screen; the first image I blazer buttons set was greeted with blazer buttons set was instructions on how to update the firmware from blazer buttons set the Windows Store and blazer buttons set how to swipe and find the blazer buttons set option to add the device. Im running Windows 8.1 still, but once I figured it out the connection took two attempts blazer buttons set to sync with the TV.I had some initial issues with blazer buttons set finding an option to add blazer buttons set a wireless device to project to; blazer buttons set my desktop runs Windows blazer buttons set 8.1 (i7 4790, 24gb 1600mhz ram, Samsung EVO SSD primary, blazer buttons set 980 ti) and uses an upgraded AC 1200 USB wifi blazer buttons set adapter. blazer buttons set The wireless adapter I had switched to blazer buttons set does not support Miracast or WiDi, so I had to re-enable the older stock onboard blazer buttons set wireless adapter. Once Id enabled the older adapter, blazer buttons set Windows immediately allowed me to sync with the adapter connected to the TV and blazer buttons set I was presented with my desktop. Now I blazer buttons set have one wireless blazer buttons set adapter connected to the Miracast blazer buttons set adapter on the TV, and one connected to the blazer buttons set router for wifi. Pro tip: make sure your blazer buttons set wifi adapter is Miracast and/or WiDi certified or blazer buttons set compatible, blazer buttons set otherwise this blazer buttons set wont work and youll blazer buttons set need an additional adapter at blazer buttons set your blazer buttons set PC.I blazer buttons set chose to extend my desktop and blazer buttons set to drag the VLC movie player over, testing the connection by blazer buttons set loading and watching the blazer buttons set movie Creed. Once you leave blazer buttons set your primary blazer buttons set desktop there is an immediately discernable latency blazer buttons set between blazer buttons set mouse actions and the display blazer buttons set that is being blazer buttons set projected. This is normal, and does blazer buttons set not affect anything once blazer buttons set you have whatever you blazer buttons set want blazer buttons set running loaded, but is also the primary reason why this blazer buttons set type blazer buttons set of blazer buttons set connection blazer buttons set is not blazer buttons set and cannot be used for any kind blazer buttons set of gaming or blazer buttons set precision work. The screen tearing and input latency would render it immensely unenjoyable, if blazer buttons set not impossible. The movie itself played fine, after a few blazer buttons set initial stuttering blazer buttons set hiccups, blazer buttons set and blazer buttons set the blazer buttons set image quality blazer buttons set was as good as the copy of the movie itself. 1080p is blazer buttons set a reality, but blazer buttons set I have my blazer buttons set doubts about anything higher, and I wouldnt want to blazer buttons set use this on a blazer buttons set 4k TV.The stuttering did re-occur intermittently, and Im blazer buttons set not certain if it has to do with blazer buttons set line of sight positioning, blazer buttons set network blazer buttons set stability, or hardware rendering. Ill have to blazer buttons set play blazer buttons set around blazer buttons set with it some more to figure out which it is, but blazer buttons set so far Im pleased. blazer buttons set Make sure blazer buttons set to blazer buttons set switch blazer buttons set your blazer buttons set audio blazer buttons set at the source blazer buttons set machine, in blazer buttons set Windows blazer buttons set control, to the Miracast wireless device blazer buttons set in blazer buttons set order blazer buttons set to get blazer buttons set your audio blazer buttons set routed through your TV and/or surround blazer buttons set sound, otherwise the sounds will blazer buttons set come out blazer buttons set whatever the default is. The instructions, such as they are, are pretty limited; I get the idea that this type of blazer buttons set device blazer buttons set is blazer buttons set intended for blazer buttons set an audience that understands (mostly) how it should be set up - I found the guide blazer buttons set at [...] to be pretty helpful.While the adapter itself did blazer buttons set get blazer buttons set moderately warm/hot blazer buttons set to the touch, I doubt blazer buttons set it will affect blazer buttons set quality or longevity, but blazer buttons set well blazer buttons set have blazer buttons set to blazer buttons set see. Ill update this if/when I run into failure issues, and blazer buttons set if I figure out how to optimize the signal blazer buttons set quality. It may have been the type blazer buttons set of video format or blazer buttons set my hardware performance (I doubt it), but more testing blazer buttons set is required. I wanted to get this review blazer buttons set out relatively quickly because there were few when I bought blazer buttons set it, and saving blazer buttons set $50 instead of spending it on blazer buttons set junk is blazer buttons set always nice. I blazer buttons set havent tried it blazer buttons set with any of my tablets or laptops yet, but other people seem to have had blazer buttons set success with those C Ive no reason to connect my phone to the TV but if I do Ill be sure to report back.As things stand, I recommend blazer buttons set this adapter. blazer buttons set 4 blazer buttons set stars blazer buttons set for ease of blazer buttons set use, 1 star deducted for blazer buttons set initial blazer buttons set signal streaming blazer buttons set quality. If I figure out how to blazer buttons set stop the occasional video stutter, Ill gladly rate it 5 stars.UPDATE 3-9-16I've since used it a few times with my blazer buttons set Samsung Galaxy blazer buttons set Note 5 and the screen sharing was flawless. It took the phone all of two seconds to connect once I enabled blazer buttons set the blazer buttons set screen sharing, blazer buttons set and there were blazer buttons set absolutely blazer buttons set no hiccups or stuttering and the video blazer buttons set quality blazer buttons set was blazer buttons set a blazer buttons set full blazer buttons set 1080p. I've come to the conclusion blazer buttons set that the difficulties I had with the PC were due to line blazer buttons set of sight issues that were my fault (there's blazer buttons set a couch blazer buttons set between it and the TV adapter, and someone was sitting on blazer buttons set it) and that the adapter itself works just fine. blazer buttons set I'm updating this to 5 stars, as I blazer buttons set am blazer buttons set completely satisfied with blazer buttons set the purchase.I purchased this for my classroom so that I wouldn't blazer buttons set be tethered to the blazer buttons set projector all blazer buttons set the time. blazer buttons set It works like a charm! I blazer buttons set plugged it in blazer buttons set at blazer buttons set the beginning of the school year and left blazer buttons set it blazer buttons set in all blazer buttons set 9 months and never had an issue. To use blazer buttons set from a laptop: press the windows key + k at the same time to have a side panel appear on the right. Select the blazer buttons set MS adapter and it connects to blazer buttons set the device the adapter is blazer buttons set plugged into (I've blazer buttons set also used blazer buttons set this on blazer buttons set my TV and it works just as well). It take about 5-8 seconds for it to blazer buttons set connect and blazer buttons set sometimes the process needs to be repeated if it doesn't establish a blazer buttons set connection, but it has blazer buttons set always connected by the blazer buttons set second time. It has been blazer buttons set a luxury to be able to project from my blazer buttons set laptop anywhere in the blazer buttons set classroom. I will by another blazer buttons set one if blazer buttons set this one ever dies.Dimensions: Adapter blazer buttons set length: 4.07 inches (103.5 blazer buttons set millimeters) x 0.87 inches (22 millimeters) x blazer buttons set 0.43 inches (11 millimeters); Adapter cable blazer buttons set length: 11.8 inches (300 millimeters); USB extension blazer buttons set cable: 6.26 inches (159 millimeters)Miracast blazer buttons set Technology doesnt limit blazer buttons set streaming to certain apps or content providers; blazer buttons set Display everything from your device on blazer buttons set an HDTV or MonitorThis blazer buttons set is an initial impressions review as I've only had the blazer buttons set device for a blazer buttons set day at the time blazer buttons set of blazer buttons set writing. I'll blazer buttons set update the blazer buttons set review if I blazer buttons set uncover something that would change my review considerably.Note: blazer buttons set This product blazer buttons set has specific requirements blazer buttons set on what type of blazer buttons set devices and operating systems it will work with. I recommend reading both Amazon and Microsoft's blazer buttons set product page (model blazer buttons set P3Q-00001) before blazer buttons set purchasing to confirm if it will work blazer buttons set with blazer buttons set your device.Here are the 2 devices blazer buttons set I am blazer buttons set successfully blazer buttons set using blazer buttons set with the Microsoft Wireless blazer buttons set Display Adapter v2:- Dell Inspiron blazer buttons set 15 blazer buttons set 5000 blazer buttons set Windows 10 blazer buttons set laptop with Intel WiDi adapter (AC 3160 NIC).- ASUS Nexus blazer buttons set 7 Android tablet running Android version 6.0.1.The reason I blazer buttons set bought this blazer buttons set device is that I wanted blazer buttons set to be able to:- Display the blazer buttons set contents of my Android tablet blazer buttons set or Windows 10 Laptop blazer buttons set screen onto my Samsung TV blazer buttons set screen. (e.g. Display blazer buttons set pictures, web browser, etc.)- Stream video from blazer buttons set either of those 2 blazer buttons set devices blazer buttons set to my TV without blazer buttons set any noticeable playback issues. More blazer buttons set specifically, blazer buttons set I wanted to be blazer buttons set able to stream items such as YouTube videos or blazer buttons set regular DVD movies from my Windows blazer buttons set 10 laptop blazer buttons set or Android tablet blazer buttons set to blazer buttons set my TV.So blazer buttons set that is blazer buttons set the extent of blazer buttons set what I needed/wanted the device blazer buttons set to do well. blazer buttons set And blazer buttons set so blazer buttons set far it blazer buttons set has definitely met those needs.During my testing, blazer buttons set I played blazer buttons set a regular DVD movie from my laptop, streamed to the TV, and it played smoothly without any hiccups. I also blazer buttons set played several videos from YouTube blazer buttons set in HD format on both my Android tablet and Windows blazer buttons set 10 laptop and blazer buttons set those videos displayed smoothly on blazer buttons set my TV. In-short, blazer buttons set I blazer buttons set did not experience any unexpected pauses, scrambled video, considerable lag, or audio issues. blazer buttons set So that is all good blazer buttons set news.As for lag, blazer buttons set it is so minimal (at blazer buttons set least in how I use the product) blazer buttons set that I'm very impressed blazer buttons set with blazer buttons set the blazer buttons set results. It is literally a fraction of a blazer buttons set second for my TV to display what my tablet blazer buttons set or laptop is blazer buttons set displaying. So that was also good news and meets my blazer buttons set needs.As for range, the official blazer buttons set product page advertises a blazer buttons set 23-foot range for reliable connections. In my house, I was able blazer buttons set to walk blazer buttons set my tablet or laptop up to 30 blazer buttons set feet away before blazer buttons set it would disconnect blazer buttons set from the wireless display adapter.Overall, blazer buttons set I'm blazer buttons set definitely happy with blazer buttons set it so blazer buttons set far. blazer buttons set There are a couple minor technical issues I listed at the end of the review. But, ultimately, the wireless display adapter worked blazer buttons set right out of the box blazer buttons set with no additional blazer buttons set configuration, and it performs very well for how I wanted to use it (i.e. stream blazer buttons set video and audio blazer buttons set reliably).Some additional info about the product that may be blazer buttons set useful to some:- It measures just blazer buttons set under 16 inches long end blazer buttons set to end, with blazer buttons set the flexible cable portion being approx. 11.75 inches blazer buttons set long.- The box blazer buttons set also included a 6 inch USB extender in case blazer buttons set you need it for your installation.- Its boot-up process blazer buttons set only takes about 30 seconds before you can connect a blazer buttons set device to it. blazer buttons set (on firmware version 2.0.8350)- I always like to blazer buttons set check on how blazer buttons set warm blazer buttons set devices like this get during normal blazer buttons set use. This wireless blazer buttons set display blazer buttons set adapter does very well blazer buttons set in that category. It blazer buttons set only gets the blazer buttons set slightest bit warm, but not really warm or hot like other similar devices blazer buttons set I blazer buttons set have plugged into my TV over the years.- As referenced in the included instructions, blazer buttons set I installed the free, optional "Microsoft blazer buttons set Wireless Display Adapter" app from the blazer buttons set app blazer buttons set Store blazer buttons set onto my Windows 10 device. This app allows you blazer buttons set to do more advanced configuration such blazer buttons set as 1) change the display name of your wireless adapter, blazer buttons set 2) enable security blazer buttons set settings blazer buttons set such blazer buttons set as requiring blazer buttons set a PIN when pairing a blazer buttons set device to the blazer buttons set adapter, and 3) displaying/updating the blazer buttons set firmware. This app blazer buttons set is completely optional, and blazer buttons set is blazer buttons set meant for users that like blazer buttons set to blazer buttons set use or experiment with these blazer buttons set types of settings. blazer buttons set If you are not that blazer buttons set type blazer buttons set of user, rest blazer buttons set assured you can skip installing this app, and just use the device straight out of blazer buttons set the box (no blazer buttons set additional product configuration needed).I'm giving it 4 blazer buttons set stars simply because of the below 2 blazer buttons set possible problems I've noticed (but ultimately blazer buttons set these are minor in my blazer buttons set situation and blazer buttons set Im still happy with the purchase). Disclaimer, blazer buttons set the below is a bit technical in-nature:- In firmware 2.0.8350, there *might* be a bug blazer buttons set with the "PIN when blazer buttons set pairing" security blazer buttons set option. blazer buttons set I saw behavior where blazer buttons set when I enabled that feature, only one blazer buttons set of my two devices was prompted blazer buttons set for a PIN. blazer buttons set I then performed a blazer buttons set factory reset on blazer buttons set the display adapter, and repeated the test and a third device that blazer buttons set I borrowed was also blazer buttons set not prompted blazer buttons set for a blazer buttons set PIN. I blazer buttons set then noticed an obvious display issue in the Microsoft Wireless blazer buttons set Display Adapter app where on the blazer buttons set "My Adapter" page blazer buttons set it says "Pair with PIN code: blazer buttons set Off" but on the blazer buttons set "Security Settings" page it blazer buttons set says "On." blazer buttons set So at a minimum, there is blazer buttons set a display blazer buttons set issue blazer buttons set in the app blazer buttons set that should be fixed. blazer buttons set But blazer buttons set it also appears blazer buttons set sometimes blazer buttons set devices can connect without going thru blazer buttons set the blazer buttons set pairing process. I'll continue to play with blazer buttons set this blazer buttons set to see if I can get some consistent results of what is happening. blazer buttons set If blazer buttons set there truly blazer buttons set is a problem, I imagine it will be fixed easily blazer buttons set enough blazer buttons set through a future firmware blazer buttons set update. Check the "comment" section of blazer buttons set this review blazer buttons set to see if anyone else blazer buttons set has confirmed this behavior blazer buttons set or has reported that there blazer buttons set is no blazer buttons set issue.- blazer buttons set A few times blazer buttons set my Android tablet has gotten "stuck" when trying to connect to the blazer buttons set display adapter. This blazer buttons set has only happened a few times, blazer buttons set and it was blazer buttons set when I was blazer buttons set performing a blazer buttons set lot of "disconnect" blazer buttons set and "connects" in succession amongst my two blazer buttons set devices during testing. When it blazer buttons set happens the display adapter blazer buttons set on the TV lists that it blazer buttons set is trying to connect to my Android, but blazer buttons set it never fully connects. blazer buttons set I then have to clear blazer buttons set the attempted blazer buttons set connection by one blazer buttons set of the following three options: 1) restart the wireless display adapter (unplug/replug), 2) restart my blazer buttons set Android blazer buttons set tablet, or 3) on my Android tablet uncheck the "Enable wireless display" option and then re-enable it. This blazer buttons set so far has been a pretty rare event and blazer buttons set again, I think it was only because I was doing blazer buttons set a lot of disconnect/connects blazer buttons set as part of testing. Normally you blazer buttons set wouldn't be doing this day-to-day, blazer buttons set so it should be a non-issue blazer buttons set for blazer buttons set most people.

Buyer's experience:


      1: I purchased this for my classroom so that I wouldn't be tethered to the projector all the time. It works like a charm! I plugged it in at the beginning of the school year and left it in all 9 months and never had an issue. To use from a laptop: press the windows key + k at the same time to have a side panel appear on the right. Select the MS adapter and it connects to the device the adapter is plugged into (I've also used this on my TV and it works just as well). It take about 5-8 seconds for it to connect and sometimes the process needs to be repeated if it doesn't establish a connection, but it has always connected by the second time. It has been a luxury to be able to project from my laptop anywhere in the classroom. I will by another one if this one ever dies.


      2: This is an initial impressions review as I've only had the device for a day at the time of writing. I'll update the review if I uncover something that would change my review considerably.Note: This product has specific requirements on what type of devices and operating systems it will work with. I recommend reading both Amazon and Microsoft's product page (model P3Q-00001) before purchasing to confirm if it will work with your device.Here are the 2 devices I am successfully using with the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter v2:- Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Windows 10 laptop with Intel WiDi adapter (AC 3160 NIC).- ASUS Nexus 7 Android tablet running Android version 6.0.1.The reason I bought this device is that I wanted to be able to:- Display the contents of my Android tablet or Windows 10 Laptop screen onto my Samsung TV screen. (e.g. Display pictures, web browser, etc.)- Stream video from either of those 2 devices to my TV without any noticeable playback issues. More specifically, I wanted to be able to stream items such as YouTube videos or regular DVD movies from my Windows 10 laptop or Android tablet to my TV.So that is the extent of what I needed/wanted the device to do well.

So that is all good news.As for lag, it is so minimal (at least in how I use the product) that I'm very impressed with the results. It is literally a fraction of a second for my TV to display what my tablet or laptop is displaying. So that was also good news and meets my needs.As for range, the official product page advertises a 23-foot range for reliable connections. In my house, I was able to walk my tablet or laptop up to 30 feet away before it would disconnect from the wireless display adapter.Overall, I'm definitely happy with it so far. There are a couple minor technical issues I listed at the end of the review. But, ultimately, the wireless display adapter worked right out of the box with no additional configuration, and it performs very well for how I wanted to use it (i.e. stream video and audio reliably).Some additional info about the product that may be useful to some:- It measures just under 16 inches long end to end, with the flexible cable portion being approx. 11.75 inches long.- The box also included a 6 inch USB extender in case you need it for your installation.- Its boot-up process only takes about 30 seconds before you can connect a device to it. (on firmware version 2.0.8350)- I always like to check on how warm devices like this get during normal use. This wireless display adapter does very well in that category. It only gets the slightest bit warm, but not really warm or hot like other similar devices I have plugged into my TV over the years.- As referenced in the included instructions, I installed the free, optional "Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter" app from the app Store onto my Windows 10 device. This app allows you to do more advanced configuration such as 1) change the display name of your wireless adapter, 2) enable security settings such as requiring a PIN when pairing a device to the adapter, and 3) displaying/updating the firmware.

If you are not that type of user, rest assured you can skip installing this app, and just use the device straight out of the box (no additional product configuration needed).I'm giving it 4 stars simply because of the below 2 possible problems I've noticed (but ultimately these are minor in my situation and Im still happy with the purchase). Disclaimer, the below is a bit technical in-nature:- In firmware 2.0.8350, there *might* be a bug with the "PIN when pairing" security option.

I then noticed an obvious display issue in the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter app where on the "My Adapter" page it says "Pair with PIN code: Off" but on the "Security Settings" page it says "On." So at a minimum, there is a display issue in the app that should be fixed. But it also appears sometimes devices can connect without going thru the pairing process. I'll continue to play with this to see if I can get some consistent results of what is happening. If there truly is a problem, I imagine it will be fixed easily enough through a future firmware update. Check the "comment" section of this review to see if anyone else has confirmed this behavior or has reported that there is no issue.- A few times my Android tablet has gotten "stuck" when trying to connect to the display adapter. This has only happened a few times, and it was when I was performing a lot of "disconnect" and "connects" in succession amongst my two devices during testing. When it happens the display adapter on the TV lists that it is trying to connect to my Android, but it never fully connects.

It is also possible that it is a bug with Android OS as I did not experience this problem on my Windows 10 Laptop.


      3: I purchased this adapter to connect my desktop PC to the TV in the living room. I had been running a 25 ft. HDMI cable across the room (hidden under the couch), and have been looking at viable streaming options for a while. I wanted something easier and more straightforward than using a Roku or Fire TV side loaded with apps for media, and less troublesome than dragging a wire across the floor. This adapter seems to fit the bill perfectly.The adapter plugs directly into an empty HDMI port on one end, and a USB for power on the other, which is perfect for the extra unused ports that LG was kind enough to load my TV up with. Once the two connections are made (there is a USB adapter you can use if you have the wrong end on your TV), the TV recognizes it immediately as another input. After selecting the correct one, the device takes a few seconds to boot up and put an image on the screen; the first image I was greeted with was instructions on how to update the firmware from the Windows Store and how to swipe and find the option to add the device. Im running Windows 8.1 still, but once I figured it out the connection took two attempts to sync with the TV.I had some initial issues with finding an option to add a wireless device to project to; my desktop runs Windows 8.1 (i7 4790, 24gb 1600mhz ram, Samsung EVO SSD primary, 980 ti) and uses an upgraded AC 1200 USB wifi adapter. The wireless adapter I had switched to does not support Miracast or WiDi, so I had to re-enable the older stock onboard wireless adapter. Once Id enabled the older adapter, Windows immediately allowed me to sync with the adapter connected to the TV and I was presented with my desktop. Now I have one wireless adapter connected to the Miracast adapter on the TV, and one connected to the router for wifi. Pro tip: make sure your wifi adapter is Miracast and/or WiDi certified or compatible, otherwise this wont work and youll need an additional adapter at your PC.I chose to extend my desktop and to drag the VLC movie player over, testing the connection by loading and watching the movie Creed. Once you leave your primary desktop there is an immediately discernable latency between mouse actions and the display that is being projected. This is normal, and does not affect anything once you have whatever you want running loaded, but is also the primary reason why this type of connection is not and cannot be used for any kind of gaming or precision work. The screen tearing and input latency would render it immensely unenjoyable, if not impossible. The movie itself played fine, after a few initial stuttering hiccups, and the image quality was as good as the copy of the movie itself. 1080p is a reality, but I have my doubts about anything higher, and I wouldnt want to use this on a 4k TV.The stuttering did re-occur intermittently, and Im not certain if it has to do with line of sight positioning, network stability, or hardware rendering. Ill have to play around with it some more to figure out which it is, but so far Im pleased. Make sure to switch your audio at the source machine, in Windows control, to the Miracast wireless device in order to get your audio routed through your TV and/or surround sound, otherwise the sounds will come out whatever the default is. The instructions, such as they are, are pretty limited; I get the idea that this type of device is intended for an audience that understands (mostly) how it should be set up - I found the guide at [...] to be pretty helpful.While the adapter itself did get moderately warm/hot to the touch, I doubt it will affect quality or longevity, but well have to see. Ill update this if/when I run into failure issues, and if I figure out how to optimize the signal quality. It may have been the type of video format or my hardware performance (I doubt it), but more testing is required. I wanted to get this review out relatively quickly because there were few when I bought it, and saving $50 instead of spending it on junk is always nice. I havent tried it with any of my tablets or laptops yet, but other people seem to have had success with those C Ive no reason to connect my phone to the TV but if I do Ill be sure to report back.As things stand, I recommend this adapter. 4 stars for ease of use, 1 star deducted for initial signal streaming quality. If I figure out how to stop the occasional video stutter, Ill gladly rate it 5 stars.UPDATE 3-9-16I've since used it a few times with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the screen sharing was flawless. It took the phone all of two seconds to connect once I enabled the screen sharing, and there were absolutely no hiccups or stuttering and the video quality was a full 1080p. I've come to the conclusion that the difficulties I had with the PC were due to line of sight issues that were my fault (there's a couch between it and the TV adapter, and someone was sitting on it) and that the adapter itself works just fine. I'm updating this to 5 stars, as I am completely satisfied with the purchase.
