Can anyone tell me what I need to do this, or if it's possible at all?
I have a Samsung LED TV which has an ethernet connection and also USB. Someone has mentioned there are certain dongles which might let me do this.
I currently burn any videos to DVD, then play them via the DVD player, but thought if the wifi connection was possible, I wouldn't need to go through the burning DVDs process.
What I'd like to be able to do is connect my downstairs TV wirelessly to my upstairs desktop pc and watch films (which are on the pc hard drive), using the wifi which is provided by my router and wifi extender (Devolo).
I bought that Samsung wifi stick for £20 less than the Amazon price in Richer Sounds (pre VAT rise).
Whilst I use it mainly for BBC iplayer and YouTube, I see no reason why you cannot stream data from a PC. Alternatively, depending on file size, you could transfer it to a USB stick and play it direct on the TV.
I can play music via USB but not watch avi or mp4, but I read somewhere that you can do a firmware update to the 7000 series and then you could play vids via the USB. Problem is I can't remember where I read that!
