    Play To


    It has not occurred to me that my Samsung TV which is wifi connected and which gets picked up by Windows 8 can be Sync'd directly to play movies using Play To.

    Well now it has and now I have a new love for Windows 8.

    I know there are other ways to stream videos, photos wirelessly using thirdparty software to the TV but this is a native connection and it's great.

    That's fantastic! Brings a whole new meaning to having Windows everywhere. I wonder if we will have WinTV's any time soon? Hehe.

    Windows Anywhere you might be on something good there! "Dual Screen To" would be it.

    Windows Anywhere... that's the perfect name for it too. Right click on a media file > play to TV. That'd be awesome! It'd be interesting to see how the networking would interact with lots of different devices.
