pci - hdmi

Post by catscratch » Thu Nov 03, 2016 5:32 am

I want to setup a second system and be able to switch my xite-1 between two systems easily. Having a second pci - hdmi card would make that possible. I don't see that card in the shop. Where can I get one?

Write sonic-core about it. If all else fails, you should be able to get the XITE express card interface, and then put a PCIe-expresscard adaptor in your PC (they run about $15us). The connector is miniHDMI, so you'd also need to use a different cable (or adaptor) with miniHDMI on one side, and HDMI to the xite on the other. I don't recommend an adaptor, as the miniHDMI is a smaller sized socket, and can't handle the weight.

This option also allows laptop use.

Thanks for the ideas Jk. I am trying to avoid running new cable. Adapters always make me nervous. The new system will be desktop with a monitor kybrd switcher set up. I will write to SC. Maybe gary could jump in here, or maybe this is not his area to do so?

just write to support.
include your name address, phone number again.
i'll have the main office make an order confirmation. they'll ship to you after payment.
i think the PCIe cards are about the same price as the Expresscards.
