Hi guys,

I've been looking for a good solution to stream video and audio wirelessly (through USB interface or HDMI) from a laptop to a living room TV, ideally at 1080P resolution (which is the native res of the TV), which would likely require something that can handle a lot of banswidth.
Just basically reflect what is on the laptop's screen and sound.
Anyone here done this with good results? I know of some HDMI wireless transmitters, but I was looking for something that is less bulky / with less wiring on the laptop end (dongle?).

I've done multiple installs of PS3's and Popcorn Hours and both have difficulties with wireless 720p/1080p streaming. Bandwidth is not an issue, it's the consistency/latency of the transmission which causes problems. Other threads in this forum say the same thing.

If your laptop has an HDMI port, you could buy a wireless HDMI transmitter that would do what you want. These operate on a very high frequency and can even do 1080p without dropping frames.

(Edit: helps if I read the first post fully - sadly I think that's about the only way to wirelessly transmit a laptop's display to your TV.

I have a 50" Samsung Plasma TV to which I have attached the Samsung wireless USB Device(dongle) With the Wiselink Pro software on my laptop I can get video, audio and photos wirelessly to the TV from the laptop.......not HD though although tv is 1080p..............I need no other media device!

OK that's nice for you Rob ;) but the TV I'm talking about is a Sony, and HD res is a must to run windows effectively from a seating distance.
