*Note: The two connectors cannot be used simultaneously. The RJ45 Ethernet connector can be used to connect multiple PCs.
HDMI over IP or USB to HDMI The RJ45 Ethernet connector and the USB mini-B host connector provide choice of USB to HDMI or HDMI over IP setup. This design offers maximum flexibility for any application where a PC to HDMI connection is required.
Audio support no matter the application HDMI technology transfers both video and audio simultaneously in the HDMI over IP setup. When in the USB to HDMI conversion setup, you can separately use the built-in 3.5mm stereo output port to transfer audio. No matter the application, you can have a complete HDMI solution for any application.
Two USB ports for connection to peripherals Two front integrated USB ports for connecting peripherals on the display/remote side gives you the flexibility to control or communicate with the source PC from a distance of up to 100m.
This review is from: StarTech IPUSB2HD2 HDMI Over IP Extender with Audio
Pros: The device works well enough for copying a PC video output to an HD TV using TCP/IP & converting it to HDMI. It uses DHCP.
Cons: The device pretty much requires a cable TCP/IP connection for movie-type video from the PC to the TV. Wireless movies are jerky with a wireless connection. Still pictures, e.g. PowerPoints, work ok with wireless.
Other Thoughts: I did not attempt to set up the audio so I have no comment on the audio other than to say I do not see how to set up audio over TCP/IP. The PC requires a software install that essentially emulates a two-monitor PC even if the PC actually has one physical monitor. The second, emulated monitor becomes the output to the TV. A low-end PC can drive the PC software ok.
