After connecting everything and making the recommended adjustments for windows 7 I proceeded to check out what would and would not work.
The unit works great with VLC media player if you run it in mirror mode and tweak the video output of the player. I have discovered that Power Link DVD software works best for full screen playback of digital video media and has less problems with "fuzz" in the picture which happens with VLC.
I have just started using the product and am sure with a little tweaking on my computer I will get even better results than now. I have to say I am seriously impressed with the overall function in mirror mode since I can use my bluetooth keyboard and mouse to do everything on my tv screen and leave my computer closed and out of the way.
The only concern I have at the moment is the amount of heat produced by the unit with extended use. After about 2 hours the unit gets pretty warm but this is to be expected with the amount of processing involved for that length of time without a cooling method other than ambient air cooling.
Overall if you're looking for a way to eliminate wires running all over the place and decent functionality between your laptop and HDMI TV this is a product worth purchasing.
The benefits far outweigh the minor deficiencies.
I would also recommend using Cyberlink PowerDVD 10 for viewing video as it will play DVD, Blueray, and digital media. All of this will work in miror mode, including Blue Ray playback which is listed as one item that the unit isn't compatible with. Since the blue ray plays through the software and the unit is mirroring the computer screen you get to watch it from your computer to the TV like a normal DVD.
Also be prepared to do a little experimenting to get better results and don't rely on just plug and play. Plug and play works but for greater viewing quality some tweaking is necessary.
From my research it appears ALL the three or four brands of wireless USB PC to TV adapters get hot and ALL of them have some issues. The reviews usually break down that one third of people love the devices, one third hate them, and the other one third are across the board. It's interesting that many of the negative reviews appear to originate with equipment not appropriate for the set up or goals that seem wildly optimistic given the level of the current technology. If money were no object, I'd be buying a WIDI enabled laptop and TV but I don't think Santa is up for that this year....
My Warpia arrived last night and I followed the instructions to a "T" in order to try to avoid some of the negative problems noted in some of the reviews. The install went cleanly but if I had been in a hurry I think there would have been problems. I say this because, over the course of the 15 minute set up, my laptop prompted me to restart no less than three times. It appears Windows might have been updating USB drivers in the background but I'm not absolutely sure. Once the laptop sat for a few minutes with no more prompts I was off and running.
Immediately I launched IE and ran one of the November CSI shows I hadn't seen yet. My laptop to TV spread is only about 15 feet and there were no issues with signal until I decided to check if the USB dongle was hot. It wasn't but when I grabbed the dongle, it blocked the signal. My bad..... Was able to reconnect without issue.
The issue I have that I will work with over the next few days is the quality of the picture. I know what the VGA to TV quality can be and, so far, we're not close yet. Primary issue seems to be pixelation, which at times was very bad, and an occasional herky jerkiness to the feed. We are in no danger of hitting the advertised 1080 capability yet. LOL!
At the moment, with a 15 minute set up time and a one hour TV show in the bag, I feel the device is about what I wanted. I will post an update when I a have more feedback.
We can stream full 1080P YouTube vidoes with no problem and the audio works perfectly. Much better than the 30ft HDMI cable I was using before! Thanks Warpia!
