Desktop to TV setup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok first off let me apologize, I didnt know where to put this thread. Maybe a noobish question but is there a way to connect my desktop to my TV in another room in some sort of wireless configuration? I really would like to be able to stream movies from my comp to my TV in my bedroom without having to run a HDMI cable.

You need something like this. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Q-Waves-Wireless-USB-HDMI-Extender/dp/B002RL9F38/ref=tag_stp_s2_edpp_url

There are wireless converters out there, but they are expensive. You could also use an Xbox 360 if you have one, by using the 360 as a media extender for Windows Media Player. However, I could never get this to work properly on three different 360's.

Google "Xbox 360 media extender" and you should get plenty of info.

i've had my XBOX used as a Media Extender, instead of using the Extender program just use Windows Media Player directly since WMP11 can directly connect to the XBOX360 and it'll play movies(avi's mainly) and mp3's thumb.gifbiggrin.gif

You really don't want to try wirelessly sending the signal. Spend cheap and you will get poor results. Spend big and you may aswell have built a HTPC.
In my house we have a main Windows 7 machine i use as a multi-purpose server and download box. This serves data to clients all over the house over CAT5e. CAT5e is far simpler to drop under floorboards or into loft spaces. You can even use homeplugs to bridge gaps using your homes electrical wiring. I use a popcorn hour A110 in my bedroom and it works flawlessly. It will playback Full HD bluray rips without missing a beat. This would give you far more flexibility and far less headaches and trouble shooting IMHO.


EDIT: The members above me make a great point. Do you already have any games consoles in the house?
