Good ol' Buy.com came through again! I don't know how they do it, but they had the lowest price on this that I could find. I bought this so my girlfriend's mom could watch some Real videos on the TV. I'm not sure why it didn't work when we hooked the laptop to it, but it works fine with the desktop. Both PCs were set with the required resolution, color, and scanning frequency. On the laptop, you could see the logon screen and everything else in Windows. When you started up a video in RealPlayer, the player would open fine but the area where the video should be was just black. I tried the adjustments on this unit and it didn't do any good. Again, everything else in Windows showed up fine, just not the actual video in RealPlayer. I assume it has something to do with the frequency, even though I did set it at 60 hz. The video does show up fine from the desktop though. Pluses: + Comes with all the necessary cables + Great price + Compact, nice looking unit + Real video looks pretty good on the TV Minuses: - Very sparse documentation - Even though the Real video shows up fine on the desktop, text in Windows is barely legible - you can't even read the names of the icons on the desktop. It might just be the TV we used it on (Panasonic 50" plasma). NOTE: This unit does video only. You can run the audio through your PC as usual, or get a cable to hook up your PC audio output to the TV.
