[citation][nom]mayankleoboy1[/nom]hey, my room is 50ft in length. you got something else for me?[/citation]

55ft HDMI maybe? haha

I like the way my Media centre is set up right now thank you very much, no point using something like this unless you don't have a media centre or are too lazy to plug in a HDMI/don't like the mess.

I can't see this being useful for most HTPCs.

It's USB 2.0. The usb end looks small, which means it's probably just an antenna - not big enough for video hardware.

Now, USB 2.0 has a maximum throughput of 60MB/s. Uncompressed 1080p at 24fps is something like 95MB/s. 60fps is around 120MB/s.

That means the device has to compress the video to send it (anyone image-quality conscious will turn away at this point). Since there doesn't appear to be hardware on the usb adapter, it means your processor needs to compress it. Compressing 1080p is a lot of work - especially when the computer has to decompress it from the original source at the same time.

Most HTPCs aren't really designed to be CPU power-houses. You can see how this would create an issue...

This is also old technology. Back in september when I was shopping for a christmas present for my mom I looked at this thing. Lag is terrible (1-2 seconds of lag) and video quality wasn't quite up to scratch.


Seriously tom's, get with the program.

My PS3 does 1360x768 streaming from my media center pc over wifi... That's at 40ft through a wall. If I had LOS at 30ft I could maybe work 1080p.

At 30ft.. just buy a cable. 50ft HDMI cable is 30-40 dollars

Hey guys, I actually dropped the $200 last year on this warpia product and not even once could I get it to work even with their tech support helping. Win764 and samsung6000 series tv. Be careful seems to be really glitchy for everyone.

Might as well just buy an AppleTV 2G for $99 + an HDMI cable and you get almost same setup with better quality.
