Yeah, that's certainly budget friendly for home use. ;-)

I would also bet that appleTV and ChromeCast are more reliable and easier to use than the Barco

The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

if your laptop supports it, Can't you just add the Sony tv as a wireless display to Windows 8 or newer?
One thing I have learned in this industry. It is easier to pull a wire than it is to push one.

Thanks.

I have both as an option. The Roku's are hardwired, and the laptop can be as I have a plug under the table at the laptop location (don't usually use it).

How? With a Miracast dongle (that would be ok)? Or can the Sony be added as a wireless display without any additional hardware (that would be great)?

I don't have an XBR at my immediate disposal otherwise I'd just find out what it can do.

Thanks. We'll try what's included before adding anything extra.

Guess I'll need a dongle, as my windows 10 laptop doe not have miracast on board and the Roku4 doesn't show up on the network..

Funny though, that when at the beach, the Firestick IS seen on the wifi network.

That's $12.99, and you know the extra $.99 just puts it over the top...LOL

It is mentioned on their site that the product does not work with Roku, and that's what I currently have.

Have a setup with an ATV, and a ClickShare (for the ability to display PC content). Was really unimpressed with the iOS abilities. So, Air Parrot would be the way to go at a $987.01 savings? Will have to check it out...

Didnt even know Roku had the option of something similar to Airplay. Good to know.
