Here’s the problem:
I don’t like cables, you might say I have a genuine hatred for them 😉
I would like to connect my NC10 to my TV, wirelessly to be able to watch movies without having to connect the NC10 with the VGA-cable and mess with some soundcables.
I would also like to be able to use my NC10 but have my TV as a big, big monitor.
How do I do this? My TV (a Plasma) has VGA, HDMI, SCART etc.
I’m thinking in the realms of a Media Extender, but I do not need the full service such a device has, I only need to be able to transfer sound and screen wirelessly, no need for some built in hardware for movieformats etc. No need for a built in harddrive etc.
I would like to be able to Stream Media from my NC10, work with my NC10 on the big screen. But what kind of simple, cheap hardware can I connect to my TV to be able to do this wirelessly without the need for cables and without the need for connecting anything to my NC10, I would like to use the WLan-card or my in-house wireless router to get the sound and picture to my TV…
Any ideas?November 29, 2008 at 12:30 pm #172153Richard TMember
Hmm,i know you can get media players for the tv that connect to your wi-fi and stream movies to it,but im not to sure about a wireless vga adpater..
If thats what you want?
Somethings that attaches to your vga port on laptop and sends the signal wirelessy(via bluetooth or something)to the tv with another reciever?
I don’t think there is anything like that, but i’ll have a lookNovember 29, 2008 at 1:07 pm #172150November 29, 2008 at 1:42 pm #172151FreddyMember
No, this is not exactly what I want. What I want is to be able to transfer audio and screen to my TV through wireless, without needing any kind of adapter for my netbook. The screen and audio should transfer trought my wireless network to my TV. My TV does not have a Network connection so what I need is some kind of device that can connect to the TV’s audio and video and get signals through regular ethernet.
I have no need for a media extender or player like the Popcorn hour. My computer can already decode all formats, I do not need yet another device that does exactly what my computer already does.
I would like to be able to work with my computer, using the big Plasma screen and also be able to watch movies etc. I think it’s a bit strange that there doesn’t seem to be such a device easily available that does just this. I don’t want to plug my computer into my TV using a VGA-cable and also have to use some either cable to get the sound.
Think such a should be quite cheap but it would also in many cases eliminate the market for HTPC’s and media extenders…December 16, 2008 at 7:39 pm #172156ArielluMember
Some TVs have a pccard slot I know the sonys do. Perhaps someone out there would be kind enough to develop a wireless card for the slot and then you could do what your looking for. Only thing I’m not sure about is if the card slot is tied into the graphics engine for the screen so that a picture can be streamed through it.
But it would be a good wish for chistmas been looking out for that feature on new TVs cant see why it can be done.December 17, 2008 at 12:14 am #172154AlfiharParticipant
It may be worth looking into the InternetVue 2020. I posted in the other thread you created before, though it’s off the main page.December 17, 2008 at 10:02 am #172149jezMember
I have been waiting for a good “media” device for a long long time. It should be able to stream music/video from my NAS wirelessly, network or USB. It needs to have a LCD screen on it so I can flip through MP3s without having the TV switched on.
It should also have PVR capability and the ability to quickly move saved recordings onto my NAS for longterm storage etc.
Perhaps one answer would be to sellotape an NC10 to my TV! And I’m only half joking when I say that!
There are already TVs on the market that are also PCs, it’s a matter of time before you will just buy a new telly and it will double up as a full PC with all the connectivity we need 🙂December 17, 2008 at 3:47 pm #172152kirkukMember
If you have a Playstation 3 you could set up the PS3 to stream the media from your NC10 onto your TV.
I use this quite a bit with my main pc streaming wireless to my PS3 and onto TV and it works very well.
Just need Media Player 11 on NC10.

yup thats the solution, I stream to my xbox360 via WMP11 from my nc10 wirelessly.
It works really well and theres a few ways to get the playback to work for all video/audio formats.
However, this is assuming you’ve brought into the latest generation of consoles.
the InternetVue 2020 looks kinda okay, but the resolution might be an issue. and for Â£125 + (I could only find dollar cost) you’re only a small jump away from picking up a 360 or PS3 anyhoo.
In my opinion, microsoft and WMP have been working for longer on getting the universal media center concept working for external devices, with a bit of playing and a bit of cost im sure you could find a method that would make you happy.
