Casting video

Post by ed »

I am thinking that it might be time to get a new TV. Got a little one for the guest room and I was pretty darn amazed at the functionality. I felt like a New Guinea tribesman when faced with Abduls Win 98 machine.

Anyway, one thing still prevents me from going whole hog such as it is. I still play games on the PC and I need to be able to get the video from the PC to the tv. Without an hdmi cable.

Possible?

I did that back in the day. I forget what the gizmo was called but it basically put a carrier on the video signal from the PC. The resolution sucked but at the time I was paying on a 45" Sony Rear Projection TV!!! Yowsa!!!

With an HDMI cable, the TV looks fabulous. Now, how to get rid of the damn wires.

Thanks Rob.

This looks like it. Their description sucks hobo balls. Do you need two of them? And nowhere is price mentioned.

Who writes that tech crap?

Hmmm seems if you have "Miracast" on your PC you can wireelssly connect to a tv/monitor. If it is a new thing then you just do it, if it is old, you need the receiver found at the link above.
