    First of all sorry if this is in the wrong place :rolleyes:

    Anyway.. does anyone know anything about this? I want to be able to use my tv as a computer monitor, aswell as being able to switch back to my normal monitor once i've finished. I was just wondering if it's possible to do it wireless? My PC is on the opposite side of the room to my TV so i don't want cables lying around etc.

    I've had a look around and there's this one, but i have no idea if it's what i need?

    Wireless PC to TV Sender: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

    Many thanks! :smashin:

    If your computer has composite or s-video out then that may work, but it's going to be pretty poor quality compared to a wired monitor running PC resoution. Does your TV have a PC input?

    In that case it should work. If you can temporarily move the PC close to the TV you could try it with an s-video cable to see what it looks like.

    The wireless sender will only be composite, so not as good as s-video, but it will give you an idea of the resolution etc.

    Yes DVI to HDMI should give very good results. You'll probably need to check your TVs manual to check what resolution / frame rate it supports.

    That would work but quality may be variable.

    It's using the 2.4GHz frequency range so you may have to play around with channels to get an acceptable signal, wifi and cordless phones have a habit of interfering with these things.
