HDMI switch

leave a comment »

I had a problem at home: 2 HDMI devices, 1 HDMI input on my TV. Solution? An HDMI switch.

So, I bought the Terk HDMI-31 . The automatic switch works beautifully. It jumps to the most recently switched on device, and jumps back to the last active device when you turn off the current. It also has a button so that you can manually switch, in case your device does not support manual.

Simple solutions for complicated problems. Better than buying a hole new TV. 🙂

LG DV298H

with 4 comments

I just bought a new DVD player. An LG DV298H. It’s interesting that it’s has been officially released by LG in Australia only, but I could get one fairly cheap in retail stores in Brazil.

Looks good, plays fine, and is my first DVD with HDMI. That will fix the fact that my XBox can’t play region 4 DVDs, neither DivX with subtitles (even though the subtitles in the LG look bad, which will need a firmware update). This is not the best player around, but will do the trick.

More fun. 🙂
