  • wifi extender
  • 4g/5G cell extender
  • local inside hotspot

Great find. Really only 4x4 inches? Does it throw off much heat (could it survive in one of the upper cabinets w/roll cover closed)?. Our main unit is a Mac mini but my cameras require a PC running Axis Companion.

How does the Victron gear use the LAN/Internet?

Have you moved to a 1080p display yet? My last trailer had a 720p tv/dvd combo unit w/hdmi input and my computers always struggled with it, especially playing movies off the hard drive. Iím not sure why, maybe because no manufacturer makes 720p computer monitors.

I am finding these 4K 27Ē monitors incredibly flexible, especially in their 1080p and some of the other <4K resolutions.

MOCA technology

I was about to pull the trigger on a very expensive ($250+) "double D" hole knockout bit to install a weatherproof ethernet RJ45 receptacle on the 22fb's outside skin when I remembered a friend of mine gave me one of these MoCA adapters in the past. Back when we trenched the lot for this stuff I had run out of direct burial CAT5 to this pedestal and only had dual coax. On Ebay I found a new pair of the early gen (my broadband speed out here is only 5mb/sec) versions for only $61 and just tried them out with the 22fb's TV inlet jack (amp off) and it worked like a charm! My Apple TV 4K unit now never skips a beat and I am now able to hardwire, through a couple of adapters, my iPad for flawless Airplay when neccesary.

BTW these things do have TV in/out's on them so you can maintain what you got going with them if you need to.
