    Internet-NUC-WiDi-TV Setup

    niranjanh

      Hello,

       

      For a new setup at my office, I need to wirelessly mirror a desktop screen along with live internet audio and video, from a NUC to a WiDi compatible TV. Is this possible?

       

      I know it is possible to mirror/extend display from NUC to a TV. But I had a few questions specific to my requirements. I would grateful if someone can help me with these.

       

      Questions:

      1. If the NUC is connected to a TV through WiDi, I presume the NUC will lose the ability to connect to Wi-Fi Internet. Just like when a mobile is used as a hotspot. If true, can I still connect to the Internet through the ethernet?! This is important as I need to wirelessly mirror an application window with live internet audio and video, and not locally stored content.
      2. Can I stream both audio and video using WiDi?
      3. Is it possible to wirelessly connect one NUC to two TVs simultaneously using WiDi? Just like a dual monitor display. Two TVs playing the same audio and video coming from one NUC. Possible?!
      4. What is the maximum distance possible between the NUC and the TV?

       

      Appreciate any help on the above. Thank you.

          Hello niranjanh,

           

          Here are the answers to your questions:

           

          1. If the NUC is connected to a TV through WiDi, I presume the NUC will lose the ability to connect to Wi-Fi Internet. Just like when a mobile is used as a hotspot. If true, can I still connect to the Internet through the ethernet?! This is important as I need to wirelessly mirror an application window with live internet audio and video, and not locally stored content.

           

          You would not lose wireless connectivity while using Widi and you can use the Ethernet connection as well.

           

          1. Can I stream both audio and video using WiDi?

          Yes, both audio and video are streamed.

           

          1. Is it possible to wirelessly connect one NUC to two TVs simultaneously using WiDi? Just like a dual monitor display. Two TVs playing the same audio and video coming from one NUC. Possible?!

           

          No. A maximum of three displays can be active at any time, two wired and one with WIDI. Intel WiDi is considered as one of the displays in a three display configuration.

           

          1. What is the maximum distance possible between the NUC and the TV?

          This would be about the same distance of the WIFI connection; however, optimum performance would be around 10 Feet.
