    Hi,

    Stupid question alert , I have my Droid box set up in main living room, what is the best way to send to two older TV's ie Dumb TV's in different rooms.

    I was thinking I need some sort of HDMI plug in style thing like the Google one, what's the best fastest option.

    Sorry if this has been posted, I did look for info.

    cheers

    Hi

    If i understand you correctly you wan't to cast screen from DroidBOX to 2 different televisions and control them from the main unit(3 units of TVs in total)?

    There are many methods for 1 additional device but it may be little tricky for more than 1 device.

    Regards

    Hi,

    Yes two old School TV's sending the feed from my Droid box to either but not at the same time, never needed on all three at the same time.

    thanks

    It might end up being cheaper (and more flexible) to get a model each, from the budget end of the range like the iMXQpro v2, for the two older TVs. Or keep an eye out at our eBay shop for refurbished recent-ish models.
    I use HDMI switches to have multiple devices plugged into one monitor, but when I tried the other way round (one device to multiple monitors), it didn't work.
    Long HDMI cable runs could end up costing a bit, if you have any old phones or tablets, you could check to see if they can output HDMI video with a cheap adaptor. You could then try casting/miracast/screen sharing to them from the DroidBOX.
