Today I've bought a fit-headless (GS) HDMI Headless Adaptor for my NAS build for using Screen sharing. Good thing about this little device is that it will allow you to have 1920x1080 without a connected monitor. Great deal its only £11.00 in the UK reduced from £27.00 and $10.50 in the US reduced from $29.00. Great deal. Just thought id mention about it. Get yourself a bargain :thumbup:

It is a good device if your looking to use Screen Sharing in Mac without a Monitor connected but wanting to have 1920x1080.

Just ordered one of these; should have checked here first. I'm relieved it works.

Just to add to this - I've been using these for ages, they're brilliant. Upgraded to the 4K one a little while back which also works. Managed to get the 4k one for £11 off of Amazon

I don’t get this...
What am I missing?
What is the purpose for this device?
It means that you can operate the computer remotely without attaching a monitor and stream video to another device in higher resolution than it would default to without it.

Just received one of these but I'm not having much luck.

To recap, I have an Intel NUC hackintosh, configured using RehabMan's guide. I'm using it as a headless node, via Chrome Remote Desktop on a Chromebox plugged into a monitor.

If I plug the hackintosh directly into the monitor, audio over HDMI works fine. However, it doesn't work when accessed remotely.

With the fit-headless, the device is visible in the Audio settings, but I don't get any sound (the slider is greyed out).

There's a Bios update I can try for the NUC, but if that doesn't work, does anyone have any ideas?

Thought about getting one of these for my headless Server Hack, but "Display Menu" from the MAS seems to do the trick? Just have to launch it and set resolution every boot...
