A few weeks ago, @email@example.com and a few others mentioned that you can get a HDMI -> USB Capture device for around 10 Euros. I now keep one in my Raspberry Pi box, to easily debug one without needing to rewire my monitor or get a second one. 10 Euros well spent.
@claudius WTF? This boosts my whole business by about 50% efficiency! Thanks!
@charims I can't find the exact model any more, but this one is pretty close. There's a ton of quite similar thing on aliexpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001015570481.html
@claudius wait what? where can we get this type of thing? Please don't say China... please say 'somewhere in Europe that is not Amazon'
@Truck in the end, they will probably all have been manufactured in china. In my case I got one similar to this one. The exact one I have is no longer listed.
@claudius manufactured is fine - it's dealing with Finnish customs that I don't want to do (:
@Truck Ah, thanks :-) In germany there's an exemption for low value goods, so I assumed something like that might apply everywhere.
@claudius There is a limit here as well - anything over 20 euros and it must be taxed and classified.
Yes, that would PROBABLY be under that.
But, one never knows when they might inspect a package (:
