I've read thru the posts and couldn't find if anyone has asked this silly/dumb question.

Can you use the OBD adapter from your handheld tuner unit (IE SCT) and connect with laptop hdmi port using FORScan? Or is the best approach to get a bluetooth adapter? I dont mind using my laptop and plan on using it for diagnostics to see if a miss-fire is occurring. Possibly looking at Mode 6 diag results to see if its below the min/mav values and therefore not throwing a CEL.

Thanks in advance.

HDMI?  I don't think you can do that without an HDMI-Bluetooth or HDMI-Wifi Converter.  Usually a USB port or Wifi is the way to connect depending on the revision of the tuner.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

I was thinking of trying to use the OBD adapter from my SCT and connecting it directly to my laptop and seeing if it will connect.

I've attached the image of the adapter that came with the SCT I mentioned above. It may not work at all. Probably figures why no one has mentioned it because it is a dumb question lol!

Do you have a closeup of the connector - certainly looks like an HDMI ...  HDMI can be spec'd to carry Ethernet, so possibly using that?

If your laptop is able to pick up the ethernet thru HDMI is may be possible all the can signals are pretty close to the same so I have read but haven't gotten that far in the actual reading of everything.

You maybe abel to wire or get a HDMI converter to some other port like HDMI to vga then strip a VGA cord then convert it to serial but that is very complicated and probably around the same price of just getting a dongle but if you were to figure it out it could make it cheaper for someone else
