    Default Looking for a piece of tech

    I'm looking for something that I can plug in to my TV to connect it wirelessly with my computer (to show the TV on my monitor or my monitor on the TV). Any ideas?

    What inputs and outputs does your TV have?

    Wirelessly? That's a new one.

    Some of the really newer TV's have a Bluetooth-style device in them, but as for replicating what is essentially an HDMI connection....i'm not sure.

    Digital media receivers are available, a company named Arctic have a good product but its far from optimal.
    might want to consider rethinking toward a wireless keyboard and mouse and have all the hardware at the tv end, which is equally 'less than optimal'

    i learnt all this in less than 5 mins from googling your question

    Already have that. The idea is to watch broadcast/cable TV on my computer (without getting a tuner card and running coax to my PC), not to stream netflix/ect on my TV. So far it looks like Slingbox does what I want, though it's network/web-based instead of BT.

    It sounds like you could do the job cheaply with an AV sender (FM transmitter/receiver that ppl use to circumvent extra subscription charges for cable tv here) depending on ur gfx card inputs.

    (I haven't used this so can't confirm suitability)

    Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
