    Does anyone know of a wireless connection I can use to connect my PC to my Panasonic 5 series Plasma Screen so that I can use this to surf in my living room. I guess I will also need a wireless connection to link up the audio to my Amp.

    Any Ideas ?????

    How do you mean?
    Which part of the system do you want to go wireless?
    I've got my HTPC with all wireless connections, but a normal VGA cable running from PC to plasma. I think that's the only cable you cant go wireless for... AFAIK...

    I think Trust do a cheap and cheerful wireless VGA sender. You could sacrifice quality and use any one of a zillion possible composite wireless senders (The Digisender X4 is probably the best). I think both of the above will also transmit stereo sound.

    If you want to go wireless component, s-video, or RGB and surround sound, then I think you may be dissappointed.

    Thanks for the help.
    I have a feeling I might be disappointed with the quality as I am looking for a wireless VGA connection. I guess I could use a set of wireless headphones for the sound

    Good luck with a decent wireless vga connection at any decent quality!

    Wireless vga is just not an option due to the bandwidth requirements of sending the dam signal......

    Looks like the Trust Televiewer only supports up to 640x480!

    What with everything else going wireless, I cannot imagine that it will be too long before someone comes up with a true XGA sender.

    Hold your horses for a bit, and sony may come to your rescue. I have heard news that a HQ Vaio series wireless sender using 54mbit wireless technology is on the horizon. That would be adequate performance wise, if it can be made to work with your PC, and not just the sony multimedia one.

    What i do is to plug my laptop in the media box via a standard non wireless vga connection and surf / or just use the laptop via wireless mouse and keyboard. The logitech wireless keyboard and mouse pack is selling for 40 quid at PC world - possibly the only item you can find cheaper there than on a website.....or indeed anywhere else....

    Vaio roomlink.
    This apparently carries video as well as music. It's meant to go with the sony media pc, but is not proprietary technology, it's 54g wireless according to one of my suppliers, but not yet available in UK. Until it arrives, I'm not vouching for the truth in any of this, it's someone else's 2+2=5.

    What you actually need is wired video/audio, and a wireless keyboard and mouse for the PC.

    Sticking the PC near the plasma,and remotely controlling it is indeed ideal, Gravitron make the best bits required for this, they gyro mouse is amazing. But I suspect this is a laptop, and he really wants to send VGA + audio wirelessly.

    Darren, of course I do, mine's right here, just not thinking hard enough. Thanks embees for the additional info, the link didn't work for me, and I overheard a conversation in a computer shop originally. Can't expect any decent video info from them, and they'd seen the 54mbit and said it was g. But, it might just work! Must find a due date for them.
