The overall performance and capability of GrandTec's YFi2TV was as advertised and more, rivaling McTivia, but at a better price. I was in search of an inexpensive way to wirelessly connect my PC to my HDTV over my home WiFi network with up to 1080p resolution. YFi2TV delivered and more. My main criticism is that the documentation was not well organized and very unclear (provided as pdf & doc files on the installation disk). The installation took me several hours to figure out while I wadded through the settings and cryptic explanations provided. The good news is that it all finally came together, made sense once I figured it all out and most important it worked.
If you are looking for an alternative to McTivia and are somewhat network savvy, then YFi2TV will do the trick. YFi2TV addresses McTivia's greatest shortfall of only 720p. On the other hand, McTivia's interface software is a lot more user friendly and can support up to 8 external devices. As far as I can tell, YFi2TV only supports one connection at a time. McTivia also has an Ethernet port, where YFi2TV does not.
If you choose to try YFi2TV, I recommend reading the installation manual from front to back. My main problem that was not very clearly documented was that you first have to connect directly to the unit in AP mode to get access to the settings required to enter your SSID and network codes, allowing YFi2TV to connect to your network. After that I had to modify my firewall settings to finally get it to work. Finally, I was also able to connect my wife's iPhone to the system by running MirrorOp in parallel with the PC2TV interface software provided with YFi2TV. If it wasn't for the poor documentation, I would have scored YFi2TV with 5 stars.

WayneH pretty much nailed it - and saved me a bunch of time. Thanks Wayne!

Lotta work probably went in to that manual. It's a pity that there's equally-probably no English-speaking person in the entire world who can comprehend it without extended study.

Really, they're making a mountain out of a mole hill setup-wise.

- Install the little utility on your laptop.

- Plug the thing in - both to AC power and a TV

- Get the laptop to discover it as a WiFi access point

- Connect to that access point

- Fire up your browser and point it at the IP addr shown by now on
the TV's screen.

That being said, it works... sort of...

Probems I've found so far:

- Incomprehensible manual. I mean, geeze guys, how much would it
cost you to hire a native English speaker to do a rewrite? Lotta
retired techies out there that would work cheap... As it is, it
might as well have been written by one of your competitors just
to scare away customers. Your manual is laughable.... a joke...
fodder for [...], even...

- Multiple references in the manual to "Ethenet Connection" but no
Ethernet port on the device

- Overscan seems tb the only game in town for setting the screen
proportions. But when I try to extend the width to match my
laptop's, it only lets me go so far. Ditto when I try to
make up by decreasing the height. People look fine on the
laptop, but their faces are too skinny on the TV. Maybe time
for a firmware upgrade?

EDIT 2012 08-09 1020:

Based on experience since the first write of this review, I am downgrading the rating to one star.
