Solved Transfer image from PC to TV

Specs: Windows 10, Intel/12GB RAM
I currently post Bocce Statistics by putting the Statistics to a JPG file. Then put the file on a Flash Drive, insert the Flash Drive in the TV USB port, then display the image. The problem is I need to walk a bit of a distance to get to the TV. Is there anyway I can transfer the file to the TV and start the display from afar?

Thanks loads, Uncle Dewey

depending on the ports on the TV and your computer and the actual distance, you could run a cable (HDMI, Display, DVI, etc) to the TV from your computer and use it as a second monitor (side by side) and just slide the image across from your primary desktop to the extended one.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Is it a smart TV connected to the Internet? If so you could do something like upload the jpeg file to a Dropbox account, then go on your smart TV and view it from the Dropbox webpage.
A Google account would also work really well for this as it let's you store photos for free

✔ Best Answer
There is a free version of Serviio, see here:

This can display any file that is on your computer onto the TV, if this would help.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for your input. It seems if I can can find a Internet place for the jpeg file, lock the TV to that place even when I replace the jpeg file. I think it is a Smart TV, but several years old. I'll need to get the TV info, and check out it's capabilities. This may very well be beyond my capabilities. I'll see, but it ,may be awhile before I can report back. I could work on my TV to see if I can get it to work, and if successful see if I can apply what I know to the TV that is used for the Statistics.

Thanks a whole bunch for your interest, Uncle Dewey
