    Hi,

    I've just bought an LG 42LB630V (in fact I didn't received it yet), and I was wondering if I could stream by WiFi my computer. Not multimedia files, but my computer: the desktop, programs, everything.
    Is there an app for WebOS for this, or you should install some LG software in your computer?
    Is there any limitation?

    Thank you!

    If your computer supports miracast or intel widi then I believe yes you can.

    Thanks for your answer.

    My network card is an Atheros AR9285, not an Intel.
    But, in the webpage, they say:
    "This utility installs an updated version of the Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter to enable the "Wi-Fi Direct™" function of the computer."
    Sony eSupport - VPCEL13FX - Drivers & Software

    So I'm not quite sure.
    I have to install a program in my computer (with Windows 7) to check it?

    I've not heard of WiDi working with Win 7, I've only heard of it working with Win 8.1 .. but I've not heard of everything in this world either. :-)

    I'd be interested in having a Splashtop version for the new webOS... hmm. or at least a VNC or some other remote control client...

    I'm not an expert, but I think WiDi is just to be able to share things via WiFi without the need of a router.
    But should be a simpler solution if you are using a router, like VNC or TeamViewer. I have no problems watching by streaming my computer on my Android phone, so should be a solution to see it on the TV, in my opinion.
