      Connect WiFi Laptop to TV via WiFi

      Hi
      I have a Vonets dangly thing plugged into my Sky+ box which enables me to use Anytime +
      Is it possible to connect, wirelessly, my laptop to my TV, via this, so I can use my TV as a large monitor for the laptop?
      Thanks

      If your TV supports DNLA and your laptop has a suitable DNLA application, then it is possible to stream some content directly from your Laptop to the TV.

      A better way would be to plug a long HDMI lead into the TV, provided that your Laptop has such a connector.

      Does your TV have a VGA input? Most laptops have so this would be your easiest/cheapest way to use the TV as a monitor. Streaming content is another matter, as you would need sound cables as well as the VGA.

      I am not sure if you can go wirelessly through the Sky box to the TV. If you had an ethernet connection on the TV and plugged the wireless bridge into that, it would be different.
