I'm having trouble finding a good solution to wirelessly connect my PC to my TV the next room over. The main confusion is everything requiring Miracast or WiDi. My hardware doesn't support this. The more I look for solutions the murkier the waters get. I'm trying to make an informed decision so I would appreciate any one who can lead me to a solid solution.

 

I'll describe the hardware that I believe could be relevant. Let me know if you need more info.

 

PC:

Windows 7 64-bit

AMD FX-8320

Radeon RX 480

 

TV:

It is old so it doesn't have any "smart" features.

Vizio Brand

HDMI

VGA

USB

Other common inputs.

 

I'm trying to keep keep the price around $60. I like the simplicity of wireless hdmi setups but they can be a bit pricey last time I checked.

$60, your out of luck.  that price range will get you converters to cat5e (for hdmi) and then you'd have to run a cat5 cable from computer to tv.

 

if you want to go wireless then you need to bump your money level to around $150 and then you have to be careful about the equipment you purchase the the range.  at that price

you probably around 30ft if not shooting through any walls or anything.

 

if your needing distance you can get 200m in the $300 range.

 

wireless video is costly.  and if your gonna spend that much you can get a 4k UHD smart tv for around $400-500 now a days.  I'd put my money there.

Dang well I know a wireless hdmi setup for just under $200 that would work. I was hoping there was some way to get my pc working with a Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter or something of the sort. Thanks for the response.

Well there is always the steam link.

 

That is around $60 and you could get a steam controller bundle with it for around $90

 

$30 more but within reason

 

Got a good wifi connection in house?

 

Sure you will need steam for it but it can work even without big picture mode.

 

You just need HDMI


You know you want me baby!
