|Hi I have a problem that may have several "right" answers.|
Here is my situation:
I currently want to set up streaming from my computer to both of my TV's with HDMI. I want the cheapest / best solution to stream videos from my main computer these TVs. One TV is close to my computer the other is not.
Here is what I am working with:
- Computer on Win 7 with no HDMI outlet just 2 DVI to my 2 Monitors
- Xbox 360 without a wireless adapter
- Laptop with HDMI
- 802.11n router.
Here is what I have set up for now:
- (Close tv) Xbox connected to my computer via Ethernet connected to my tv with HDMI cable. Using Windows Media Extender.
- (Far tv) Laptop connected via HDMI to my TV and getting files using a drag and drop remote desktop program (I had no idea how to set up super simple file sharing scenario with homegroup..
Some ideas of mine:
Get a splitter
Upgrade my graphics card
Get wireless adapter for xbox
Use some kind of box with hdmi to connect to my tv.
I'm going for the least expensive option. In the living room it is nice to use my desktop to select videos but in the bedroom it would be nice to use my xbox as a controller in bed. Thank you :)
