It's basically a tiny encapsulated computer... You would likely want to connect external peripherals anyhow (mouse, keyboard, external hard disk for storage, etc.) so connecting a powered USB hub to provide the juice to run is almost a non-issue. Alternatively, you could use a low-cost AC USB power adapter (common for phone charging and the like) with a cable to power this unit... And some newer TVs have USB ports available for plugging in flash drives or peripherals, which you could also tap for power. Point is, there are more than a few options for using this product without needing a PC nearby.Guest said:
Please forgive my ignorance but what is the point of this device? You need to have it plugged into a usb port for power. Which means you probably have it plugged into a more capable computer. Could some better informed person explain it to me?
I should have been more clear, I was commenting on how they had it set up in the video. It was powered by USB through an AC adapter. Regardless, you can't have this plugged into both a USB port and HDMI port at the same time without some type of extension. I'm sure that's where some peoples confusion came from... How many people do you think watched the video?Matthew said:
I'm pretty sure it can be powered via USB 2.0
