Operating a headless PC requires remote desktop access, but in many cases compositing the desktop in high resolution is possible only when the computer detects a connected display. fit-Headless is a miniature HDMI plug that emulates a high-definition display connected to the PC. The headless PC identifies fit-Headless as a connected display and enables the GPU thus allowing remote desktop compositing at high resolution. fit-Headless works with any HDMI capable PC on any operating system and requires no software installation nor configuration. fit-Headless does not require external power.

With this plug, I'm able to eliminate the need to plug a television in. Google remote desktop works just fine for access to my alpha and the tv can go back in storage as a just incase solution. Thanks CompuLab.
We wanted the GUI to start so a vendor partner could log into the Intel NUC remotely via TeamViewer. They were logging in and only seeing a black screen because the NUC was in console-only mode. Of course, the vendor could SSH into the box but they preferred to use TeamViewer and navigate via the GUI to complete routine sanity checks on the system.
This little accessory did the trick and allows for logging into the box!
While purchasing the Chromebox my initial thought was to use a Plugable sharing switch (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JX3Q28Y/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1), however, there were complications using this. The first issue was getting DisplayLink adapters to work with the OS I installed on the Chromebox. The second was that my Jabra device was useless when connected to the Chromebox since it needed a Skype installation on my work laptop. The third was that for the minuscule timeframe that I would switch out the connection from my work laptop, it would drop the connection, at least the first time.
So my alternative was to use VNC to connect to the Chromebox. I was using X11VNC, and while this works fine if there is a monitor connected to the Chromebox, the lack of a monitor causes the resolution to get hammered.
A little Googling brought me to this product, and I decided to take a chance on it, given the low cost. Upon arrival, the unpacking was easy enough, and it took me a total of 1 minute to shutdown my Chromebox, plug this in, start up the machine and connect to it using VNC. All resolution issues magically disappeared once I rebooted!
Very few products have been so effortlessly effective within a minute of unpacking! I highly recommend this item.

Here's a tip I'll drop in for Steam streaming, if you are having issue with no audio on your streamed games plug in an old set of headphones (or a cheap Poundland pair) to your PC audio port. This should sort the issue. This has nothing to do with this item, but it took me a while to figure out the issue and I figure it could help someone to mention it here. There are other solutions to this issue, but this is the easiest fix.
If you want to try this too, you also need to install a virtual audio driver.
