Digital Media Help

Hi everybody I hope someone can help me.

Basically what it is I want to setup my television so I can watch media from my pc on my TV, sounds easy enough but here are the problems. The PC is in a different room (upstairs). Basically I want to be able to control my pc from downstairs and use my TV as a monitor. I don't know where to start.

So all in all is it possible to completely integrate my television downstairs with PC upstairs.

I hope someonc can help me

All the best

Something like this?

When you say "control my pc" I assume you mean get the files off it to play? If you actually want to remote control your PC you'll need something more like a PC hooked up to the TV i.e. a media center or something of that nature.

If you just want to play downloaded video/music files then the above should do it, you'd need wireless capability on your PC upstairs also (or wired if you wanted to run a cable down).

To clarify...I think you can remote control the PC in the sense of choosing media etc. to play but don't expect a desktop from your PC to show on your TV screen...

Thanks for that, I have media center pc but was really wondering what the best way to go about this is. At the moment I have a svideo cable which I can link up to the PC and television but was just really wondering about control

What kind of control do you want? If the media center PC is the PC upstairs then you could even get an x-box in the lounge and use it as a "media center extender" to stream content to.
