I have just about had it with this device.
After days of trying to get it running to a near-acceptable level, and eventually succeeding, I returned to it a few days later to find that - lo and behold - it just no longer wants to accept any sort of HDMI cable I plug into it. Neither the HDMI nor component light on the device lights up, even with HDMI cables firmly and correctly connected. The software installer finsihes installing with no issues at all, but after restarting windows it neither installs the necessary drivers nor, even, lists the HD Pro in my device manager. I've tried reinstalling, repairing, checking for updates, even rrestarted my whole #$^@ computer in order to reinstall it afresh. I've tried installing with firewalls and anti-virus both on and off, absolutely nothing has worked.
And now, though the light indicating that the device is connected is on, there's nothing here to suggest that there's any action between it and my PC. I can only presume that the usb port is frazzled. It never felt particularly stable in the first place - always a little loose. Is anybody else's device like this? Can anyone else advise?
I'm disappointed. Once this thing worked, I was impressed. But after all the hassle it's caused me, I'm beginning to doubt it was worth either the effort or the money. Advice is most certainly appreciated!
