Want to connect tablet to TV wirelessly.

  bumpkin 15:36 03 Feb 2013

Hello, I would like to connect a tablet PC to a TV without the HDMI cable. There seems to be lots of devices available, I just need the simplest thing. A couple of little dongle type things I had in mind smaller the better. I have had a good look but not sure what is most suitable. Any suggestions please.

Thanks for the link, lots of info but can't really find what I want.

First question is will your TV accept wireless or a wireless dongle?

Which tablet?

Fruitbat, how do I tell, one is a 3mnths old LED with HDMI, the other a 4yr old plasma also with HDMI socket Is that enough info or do I need to to find the manuals. Woolwell, it is an Ainol Novo 10" tablet about 3 weeks old.

I was thinking that I could transmit to a small receiver plugged into the HDMI port rather that direct to the TV as that would enable me to easily move it to another TV.

I'd be surprised if the 4 yr old plasma can accept wireless or even ethernet.

Which make and model of LED?

Intel Wireless Display technology, or WiDi, built in to your tablet?

or maybe something like this?

The plasma works Perfectly with a HDMI cable as does the LED. LED is Logik L24 FE12, plasma is Panasonic, can't find the manual. All I want to do is get rid of cable connections just like you do with a little USB stick to your router. I realize this is not the same thing but was hoping there may be something similar for HDMI transmission. Fruitbat, the tablet has WiFi not WiDi but has a mini HDMI port which I could plug a device into if such thing exists. The item in your link would probably work but it is too big, too expensive and not really what I need but thankyou anyway. As I said in OP I could not find anything myself, I would be surprised if there is nothing available to do this, maybe we should make one and patent it :-)
