Atlona AT-HDAir Wireless USB HD Video Adapter



Everyone’s favorite plastic package. After spending 10 minutes trying to scissor through thick plastic we get to the contents.

Package Includes

  • 1 x USB Sender
  • 1 x Wireless USB Receiver
  • 1 x VGA/HDMI Base to hold the USB receiver
  • 1 x Universal Power adapter to use with VGA/HDMI Base
  • 1 x User’s manual

The receiver can be attached in two different positions vertical and horizontal depending on how you are going to set it up. The receiver has 2 video inputs, HDMI and a standard DE-15 VGA that work simultaneously meaning you can have two screens connected at once, and of course the power input.



I will be testing this product on three different Microsoft OS’s: Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. The Mac support is currently unavailable. As seen above the requirements are XP or Vista but I will see how we can make this work on Windows 7 as well. The installation installs two separate programs Wireless USB Suite and DisplayLink. On the hardware side you will need an HDMI cord HDMI compatible screen and a computer that supports USB2.0.

Windows XP:
Installation was like any other USB device out there. When the autorun starts up you will be presented with several options, I suggest reading “User Guide” that has detailed instructions about installation. I followed these instructions and everything worked perfectly fine.

Windows Vista:
Same as Windows XP, very straight forward. Following the User Manual, after installation the HDAir connected and worked.

Windows 7:
Here I ran into a problem. The software “DisplayLink” on the disk did not support Windows 7 even while running under compatibility mode. However Wireless USB Suite did not give me any problems under compatibility mode and ran just fine. After looking up online for the latest DisplayLink driver which, as of today, 5.2b, the AT-HDAir connected and started working.

  1. Here’s another awesome way to stream those HD videos from your laptop on to your HDTV. If you’re looking for an alternative though, I suggest trying out the Netgear Push2TV product. This device makes use of the HDMI port on the HDTV and acts as a wireless adapter, displaying what you see on your laptop on to your HDTV. So instead of connecting the laptop via an HDMI cable, the Netgear Push2TV takes its place, and wirelessly streams the contents of your laptop even if they’re in separate rooms in the house. To know more about Netgear’s Push2TV product, just check it out here, I’m sure you’ll love it too.
