transmit wirelessly from laptop to LCD TV??

Discussion in 'Electronic Repair' started by Sammy Abernathy, Dec 7, 2013.

  1. I want to be able to see my laptop's screen on my 46" LCD TV. Is there
    a cheap way I can do this wirelessly and, if so, how?

    Thank you,
    Sam

    The NSA by its actions has shredded the 4th Amendment of the Constitution
    and has essentially declared war on the American people. Put the NSA leaders
    on trial for treason, and upon being found guilty, publicly execute them to
    send a strong message. God bless Ed Snowden! Death to NSA thugs!

    I have two older technology devices like this.
    Great for watching a movie.
    Reading text is impossible.
    Imagine a picture with way too much jpg compression.
    I expect current generation is better...just hard to
    tell without seeing one in action.
    Cheapest may not be the best metric.

    Suggest you get a demo before spending a lot of money.
    At lest get advice from someone who actually uses the
    EXACT model you're contemplating.

    Connect a video camera to the TV, focus and point it at the laptop
    screen. There you go! Wireless :p

    If you just want to watch video files you have stored on the laptop, a
    network connected media player would be a solution to access the laptop
    drive via WiFi. Cheap, you might have one already built into your TV if
    it advertises itself as "Smart" or DNLA, or similar built into connected
    Blueray or PVR equipment.

    There are also software methods about (e.g VLC) to turn a computer
    display into a video stream, that may also be rendered by such a media
    player. Won't be the best in responsiveness as there will be a delay for
    encoding the stream - so useless for gaming.

    And then there's wireless HDMI....
