    Default video sending.

    Not sure which forum to post this, so I guessed.

    Background: Wife has a TV set up on a bracket in her bedroom. She has Foxhell box and a computer (networked) also connected to said TV. Computer is primarily used for Video.

    Problem: She is having trouble reading the screen from across the room when using the computer.

    Solution: Set up computer nearer to her with a screen that she can read.
    In my loungeroom I have a dual monitor setup as per the solution with the second "monitor" being the TV so I can watch netflix etc on the big screen.

    Question: What would I need to to be able to send the "second" monitor signal to her TV across the room without having to run a bloody long cable? i.e. wirelessly. (I just realised I'm going to have to set her computer up to talk to the network wirelessly now as I do have a cat6 connection at the TV. So that might be a possibility.

    That way she can browse using the screen near her and then send the video to the second screen as needed.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    How many video cards do you see with composite video output? But, yes that might work though it will also be the most expensive bit in the whole video chain. I'm thinking more along the lines of VGA or HDMI.

    Would a Chromecast work? Slight delay on screen mirroring though.

    That might work, I will do some more research.
