Any idea how well this would work with an HTPC? Like, instead of a GPU?
Or would this be something that doesn't run by itself?
naw u need a gpu...this is essentially a hdmi port addon if you netbook or something doesn't have one...

Stand-Alone Video Adapter:
The next testing up is going to be seeing if the Diamond USB PC to TV HDMI Adapter is going to be able to display a video signal to my monitor with out an internal video card being installed in the system. To accomplish this, I am going to pull out the Diamond HD5570 video card from my system, while it is off of course, and restart the system with the monitor only being attached to the Diamond USB PC to TV HDMI Adapter to see if I am going to get any sort of video display and try and make it into Windows. This unfortunately did not come out how I had hoped - when I pulled the video card out and tried to restart using just the Diamond PC USB to TV HDMI Adapter, I was unable to get any display on my monitor.
I tried to see if it would work without a GPU installed in the system
