At the moment I am thinking of going with the Belkin one as it is cheap and can display 1080p. There doesn't seem to be much discussion on AVSforum on these devices. Anyone have any opinions on what would be my best option?
I considered the option but it seems like if I transmit a 1920×1080 3D movie over wireless it won't look near as good. It doesn't with high quality RCA cables. Just got a 25 foot Monoprice HDMI that is only visible coming out the AVR for 2 feet then another foot where I plug in.
Does the info show it as 1920×1080 with no lag? Also when I did it that way every time I had to pause or wanted to FF or RW I had to start the movie from the beginning again
My problem is that I wish to watch my laptop's content (*) on my HT. My setup is:
- Router (Asus RT-AC66):
o To Media Player (Oppo 103) via Ethernet;
o To Media Player (Apple TV) via WiFi 802.11n;
o To Laptop (Sony Vaio VPCSA/Win7/Firefox) via WiFi 5GHz 802.11n;
- Media Player Apple TV to Media Player Oppo 103 via HDMI
- Media Player Oppo 103:
o To A/V Receiver (Onkyo) via HDMI;
- A/V Receiver (Onkyo):
o To Sound System 5+1 via cables;
o To Display (JVC 4k projector) via HDMI;
I am aware of a few possible solutions (but unsure which meets my needs):
1: Google Chromecast:
o But this solution requires my laptop & Media Player to be on same WiFi network (Oppo via
o It also requires me to install Chrome browser (I use Firefox);
o MS Silverlight not 100% supported;
2. Netgear PTV3000; Actiontec SBWD100A01; Belkin ScreenCast; D-Link MainStage; DIAMOND Multimedia WPCTVPRO; IOGear GW3DHD
o Not sure about latency;
o Not sure that it can play DRM stream, flash, Silverlight, etc.
