I am looking into MagiCue HD/HDMI Video Transmitter/Receiver... Under the Specs section... it shows the standard HDMI formats, but also shows... PC: VGA (640 x 480), SVGA. Does this mean that the RCA type connectors are part of the transmitter and receiver? In other words... can it transmit/receive via standard composite A/V connections? Thank you in advance...
Asked by: Gary P.
According to the manufacturer, there are no A/V connections for this product.
