I have my computer upstairs, and a TV downstairs. I would like to be able to view video files, movies, and the like on the downstairs TV easily. I’m not worried about games (my upstairs computer has a TV attached via HDMI), so lag is not an issue. My computer is connected to the wireless router via Cats-5 cable, so won’t be sharing bandwidth, and there is a wired access to the router via cable not too far from the TV if needed.
Worse case, I don’t need input access, I can always start a movie upstairs and run downstairs while the kids watch it, but of course that is a big bonus.
So, is there a good device I can attach downstairs that does what I want? I would appreciate and suggestions that y’all might have.
