Here’s a question….
My LCD tv has a VGA input but its too far away from my PC to be used without running wires all over the place…What should I do?
Connecting a PC to your TV makes a lot more sense these days, with all of the ways to get video content from the web, and all of the movie and tv download stores popping up people are looking for ways to take advantage of that content with their shiny new LCD or Plasma televisions. There really isnt a excellent solution to do so as of yet, other than just making your PC a permanent fixture in your living room. While I dont think this is the complete answer, the IOGEAR wireless USB to VGA adapter seems like it may be a step in the right direction.
This kit comes with a Wireless usb adapter that you plug into your PC or Laptop. Then there’s a wireless VGA adapter that plugs into your TV or Monitor. The Wireless USB adapter will then act as a display output were you can set your PC to extend its desktop. the VGA adapter will pick up the signal and display your extended desktop on your TV or monitor. The good thing about this kit is that it will display at resolutions up to 720P. the bad thing is that it doesn’t transmit sound.
Transmission can be broadcast wirelessly up to 30 feet away (15 feet at 720P) so its got enough range to transmit from your PC from across the room or in some cases from another room. but like I said…sound is the main issue, and is something you would have to find another solution if you want to hear what you are watching.
