    Suggested Uses for Installed Bluetooth and Wireless LAN


    Hello everyone, from Snowy Michigan.
    My HP Pavilion p7-1446s Desktop came installed with Integrated Bluetooth 4.0 and Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n.
    I already have an N Router.
    Anyone want to offer suggestions on how you might use these features? if you had them .
    I had been looking at Streaming Players for my TV, like Roku, Netgear or Western Digital...and then I found out about gadgets that stream a Wi-Fi from my PC to the TV, like McTivia or Warpia.
    My PC is in the basement and the TV around 15 ft. away.
    All thoughts are appreciated.

    I had earlier posted this in Networks & Sharing, but wanted it in General Support.
    Sorry if this causes any issues.

    Well you can use Bluetooth with wireless Bluetooth headsets for Skype, or for gaming...
    Also it's often used to play music with Bluetooth speakers...

    There's a lot you can do with Bluetooth, even connect your phone to your PC and fling files between the two.

    I'm looking for a gadget that will wirelessly send the Audio/Video from my PC, using
    Bluetooth, to a USB receiver Dongle, inserted into the TV ? I wonder if there is such a thing.QUOTE=ProtoType;195508]Well you can use Bluetooth with wireless Bluetooth headsets for Skype, or for gaming...

    The easiest way to connect to devices with Bluetooth (if your TV has Bluetooth) would be something like this link:

    There are actual "Dongles" that are made specifically to play music wirelessly, but it has to be plugged into the TV.
    Here's one that many people like:

    Let me know if the links help!

    Thanks for the replies.


    I've been looking even more since I posted, and it appears , for the money, this Warpia StreamHD would probably be what I would end up with

    I'm not very imaginative, I just use Bluetooth to connect to my Nokia Lumia 920 from my PC to sync music, videos and photos...
