PC 2 TV

I'm looking for a device that will transmit vga, audio, keyboard & mouse so I can operate the PC on my TV. I've come across some devcies that perform nearly all the functions, but most miss off a seperate mouse, and are only available in the states.

The PC will be in a differnt room on a differnt floor to the TV, so needs to operate via radio.

Has anybody come across a device, or a combination of devices that will allow me to do this without the use of wires.

Thanks

You could try buying an infrared keyboard and mouse, connect the TV out and sound card to a video sender device (argos do them) which will also retransmit your infra red signals to the receiver unit.

Thanks for that.

I had thought of using a video sender, but wasn't sure if the IR sender would be up to the demands of a constant stream needed for the mouse. Has anybody tried this...?

being down some reasearch, and the Video sender things looks like a posibility. One thing I would like to know, is does anybody here us a wireless mouse and keyboard, one that use radio, not infra red..? How far do they operate? I need one the will operate about 5ish meters, and through one floor.

Thanks.

Logitech cordless mouse and keyboard will certainly work from 5m but not sure about through the floor.

RE: PC 2 TV

Just a thought - you are aware that TV's don't make very good monitors - especially when driven via composite video signal? Expect to run at no better than 800x600 res.
I have one of the cheaper videosenders (from Argos) and find that the IR relay transmission causes interference on the TV picture. This isn't a problem for TV viewing, but may be irritating if you have it constantly - as when using a mouse . . .
