It is useful to connect your PC to a TV when you want to watch videos or other media on a screen larger than your monitor. The downside to this, however, is that you have to physically move the computer near the TV to hook up all the wires. Instead, you can use a PC to TV wireless adaptor and receiver, which allows you to use your TV as a wireless monitor without moving or disconnecting your PC.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Insert the Installation Disc for the wireless adaptor into the disc drive. An installation wizard will start up that will allow you to install the USB driver.

  2. 2

    Follow the prompts to install the driver. Depending on the brand of the wireless adaptor, you may have different options to choose. Choose the option for the USB adaptor. After copying and installing the files, you may be asked to agree to a user agreement. Click "Agree" or "OK" to agree, then click "Finish" once the driver is finished installing.

  3. 3

    Connect the PC to TV wireless USB adaptor. If a hardware wizard pops up, keep pressing "Next" to run through the wizard, then "Finish" when Windows is done installing the hardware.

  4. 4

    Connect the video cable from the PC to TV wireless receiver to an open input on the back of the TV. This video cable can be a HDMI cable, VGA cable, component video cables, S-Video cable, or yellow RCA cable, depending on what your receiver and TV support. Both the receiver and TV must support the same cable (for example, both must support HDMI in order to use a HDMI cable).

  5. 5

    Connect the audio cable from the PC to TV wireless receiver to the TV. If you used a HDMI cable, you do not need a separate audio cable. If you did not use a HDMI cable, connect the red and white RCA audio cables from the back of the receiver to the TV. Use the same input that you used for the video cable. For instance, if you used "Video 2" for the video cable, use "Video 2" for the audio cable.

  6. 6

    Turn on the the receiver and turn the TV to the input you plugged the receiver into (for instance, "Video 2" in the example from step 5).
