Do I understand correctly, they have a receiver with an HDMI input, connected to the TV via component (not composite, and not RF)?KILL wrote:...How would the quality be using component? They have some like HD receiver which has HDMI but I don't know if that would work? ... How about true 720p?
Code: Select all
Almost right. From the photos your "little converter thing" appears to be a mono 3.5mm (not 35mm) jack to RCA phono (audio) mono (Red and White) converter. What you need is a stereo 3.5mm jack to RCA phono audio mono (Red and White) adapter (which has RCA sockets)** or cable (which has RCA plugs).KILL wrote:Ok, but is this converter box necessary?
Can't I just unplug everything except the TV and then plug in the raspberry pi?
Then use the yellow composite cable and 35mm audio jack into the TV?
I have this little converter thing. This should work for 35mm > RCA into the TV right?
You can't go far wrong with one of these, in my experience. They're ludicrously easy to set up (the instructions can be accessed at the bottom of the linked page, there), and work very well.KILL wrote:What about the wifi? I have never used a wifi USB dongle before and I assume not all are compatible with Linux.
