Hello, I have 4 screens in my tech space(the Cave), one laptop, 2 monitors and 1 TV. Usually that is enough, but occasionally I need one to quickly check something on a particular SBC or TV box.
I don’t have room for another traditional monitor here in the Cave. Portable monitors and quality HDMI switches can be pricey.
I have a cheap(<$20usd) HDMI to USB capture dongle. Using the dongle, an HDMI cable, a phone(Moto G Power in this example) or tablet with an OTG port and an app gives me a cheap portable monitor.
While this solution does not offer the best resolution, it is acceptable in a pinch.
I previously made a post about the HDMI to USB capture dongle, using it and an Edge-V to capture HDMI output from another Edge.
Thought this could come in handy for some.
And when it is too small, it can be zoomed…
