    Displaying Windows Desktop on TV through XBox 360

    I am a bit of a windows 8 newb, but I am trying to understand how I can display my windows 8 session on a TV using smartglass.

    As I understand it, smartglass is a competitor to Apple's AirPlay. On Airplay, I can sync it with a television and show the display from a mac or ipad on a big screen wirelessly. I want to do the same thing where I can sit on my couch with a laptop, but display the windows desktop on the TV screen.

    So far, I have not found a tutorial on how to do this. Can someone please recommend one or explain what I need to do?

    I found this, but no tutorials

    Use Microsoft’s New SmartGlass App To Control An Xbox 360 With Your iPhone or iPad | Cult of Mac Mobile

    There are videos, if you google "using smartglass" they show up.

    I believe the idea is you do this through your iOS or droid device, there are apps that control it
