Well, I did it. I broke down and set up a permanent room video chat. We were using a laptop but I remembered I had an old (as in it still has spinning disks of magnetized metal dust to store data) MacMini. Hooked it up with a mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable to a TV input. The TV puts its sound out over digital to the amplifier and the big speakers. Two long amplified and filtered USB-A extension cables permanently connect the Blue Yeti microphone and the Logitech C930 webcam on its tripod. An integrated mini keyboard with pencil eraser mouse stick built-in plugged in. Presto! Power up, TV to HDMI 1, amp on, and we’re in business. It picks up the whole built-in benches and displays on the 55″ TV.
