Best solution to "stream" a Windows 10 desktop to a smart TV in a different room?
I have a Windows 10 machine which is in my home office and it is basically where I do everything from email/social media browsing to watching movies/playing music to occasionally playing games.
I would like to be able to access and intuitively navigate everything on my big screen in the living room that I can on my PC in my home office. Through DLNA, I am already able to go into my office and stream a song or movie to my living room... but I'd like to be able to just use my remote control in my living room to be able to play/pause, etc... and right now I don't think that's possible. Plus, I use J River Media Center software and I really, really like their theater view and would like to browse my media collection that way.
Additionally, I also like to watch a bunch of sporting events at once on my PC through espn.com. Sometimes I'll have 4 or 6 games up at once and would like to be able to watch all those at once on the big screen. Given all these "needs" it seems that anything short of a full windows mirror cast will come up short. I have been unable to successfully cast Windows 10 to my TV out of the box as is.
I don't mind adding a piece of hardware (nvidia shield?), or a dongle or two (Fire stick, Chrome cast???) to my setup to accomplish what I need to do, but I would prefer not having to build a separate HTPC to connect to my living room setup via HDMI (as that still doesn't solve the issue if I want to play my media in the basement, or in a bedroom, and I'd like to be able to do that as well).
