does either airplay or chromecast allow 1080p? I have maxed out the 2 monitors on my mbp; I have a third monitor, and I can connect to it via airplay, but I only get 720p. Thus, is there an airplay, chromecast, or whatever else dongle that gets 1080p?
😞 // I have a $25.00 "anycast" dongle that supports miracast/airplay, it's laggy, but tolerable for showing documentation unfortunately, it's only 720p
and I can't justify spending $200 on this: http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/dh2go/digital_se/
@tbaldridge: does this require special thunderbolt active display monitors? what I have is: (1) a mbp that supports itself + 2 external monitors (despite having 2 display ports + 1 hdmi) and (2) three hdmi-tvs
I have https://support.apple.com/kb/SP704?locale=en_US -- which according to docs, supports 2 external monitors + builtin lcd. If I use some magical thunderbolt cable, can I get it to support a third?
now I've only done this with MBP Retinas from (late) 2012 and 2015, but this has worked for me https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Input-Output-Adapter-Cable/dp/B014I8UQJY/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1487471295&sr=1-3&keywords=HDMI+to+DVI
the secret is that Display Port, HDMI, DVI and Thunderbolt all support the same video format, so cables can convert from one to the other.
something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-DisplayPort-ThunderboltTM-Compatible/dp/B004CAHTCQ/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1487471607&sr=1-3&keywords=thunderbolt+to+dvi
I have 2 displayport -> hdmi cables; and 1 hdmi -> hdmi cable now, I can use any two of the three monitors, but if I connect all 3, one is always blank
I'm actually using something like this https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-DisplayPort-Thunderbolt-Compatible/dp/B00C7RJQPY/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1487471720&sr=1-3&keywords=thunderbolt+to+displayport
the annoying thing is that I can "get 3" by using: laptop, external, external if I could just do external, external, external(mirror of laptop) i'd be so happy
there's something about "active cables" and http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/111112/how-to-use-3-external-monitors-on-15-late-2013-macbook-pro-retina claiming that these monitors can only support 2 "passive"
@ashnur: (re wikiquote question in #clojurescript) -- if you figure itout, please let me know; I've been trying to parse the wikipedia xml, and the only solution I've come across so far is: install mediawiki + load the db
@ashnur: your life may be easier since it's just wikiquotes: my life was not pleasant when I read: https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2013/11/all-of-wikipedia-can-be-installed-to-your-desktop-in-just-30-hours/
there's a number of adhoc xml parsers out there, which may work on wikiquotes (due ot simpler structure), but I never got any to work well on actual wikipedia xml
there should be a universal ui for i/o that has modules for transmuting both the input and the output where the modules are platform specific optimizations
yeah; I was rather unpleasantly surprised, I thought xml was verbose/messy enough; but apparently they figured out a way to roll their own adhoc, undocumented language on top of xml
tbf i am not surprised at all, i expect nothing better from the same old idea of universality
if something is good for everything, it's good for nothing, that's my motto. one of many 😛
so, i think the order should be reversed, and your file should be explaining itself, or the file format should be specified in a way from which one could automatically deduce a parser. there is no universal file format.
although there is that very nice new one "the burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander"
@tbaldridge: it appears even after getting 2 "active" displayport -> hdmi converters, this particlar mbp only gives me 2 screens and just refuses to power a third external monitor
@qqq that stinks, must be something to do with the 2014 model. Kindof glad I never ran into that 😐
Well the other option is USB->DVI connectors, those appear as new display devices (cards), they're slow, and super crappy for video, but I've heard they work okay for code.
@tbaldridge: this is expected given that the official apple webpage spec for my laptop says it only supports 2 ; but there were all these rumors on youtube/forums talking about "yeah, they mean only 2 passive; if you get active it works, blah blah blah" so I had to try 🙂
any usb -> dvi you recommend? all the ones I find on amazon are windows only, while the osx ones are all < 3/5 stars
I have a sony bravia 55" 1920x1080 if I connect it via hdmi, I get 1920x1080 if I conenct it to my mbp via airplay, I get only 720p
