Black Box VG-HDMI Reviews

Performed as expected

I needed something to force a 1080p 60 EDID for a source device feeding a Blackmagic HDMI to SDI converter. Neither of the connected devices requires any kind of HDCP so I cannot speak to any issues that might arise from that. The HDMI EDID Ghost performed as expected. I used the hard setting and never attempted to copy an EDID. Time will tell whether or not the device is reliable. The device is doing exactly what I purchased it to do.

Excellent

This is an excellent little box. It's well built and does exactly what the manufacturer says it does. Setup was a breeze. The manual can be confusing but it basically reads/duplicates/changes and EDID HDMI/DVI signal. Why do you need this? Simple...If your monitor/TV is not talking to your input device properly for whatever reason, this will take care of that. You can select resolutions, color options on the fly and pass through sound as well. Why did I use this? I was trying to connect a PC output to an HDMI monitor of obscure resolution. I was greeted with a blank screen. I did some research and it turned out the Intel drivers do not support said resolution...so HDMI handshake was happening but that was about it. All I had to do is connect this box between the monitor and the PC and set it to a resolution that the Intel drivers understood...and voila...problem solved. The box continuously broadcasts the EDID signal so the computer thinks it's always connected. Perfect.
