HDMI connection replaced by DLNA

My PC is in the same room as the TV.
I have a wireless keyboard and mouse.
The PC monitor and TV are both Full HD quality.
If I want to see the PC monitor on the TV I must use a HDMI cable connection.

Is it possible to stream a copy of the PC monitor to the TV througt the DLNA server?

With LogMeIn, Teamviewer, PC-anywhere it is possible too so why is it not in the dlna server?

Re: HDMI connection replaced by DLNA

This gets asked about a lot and I think Zip mentioned that he would take a look at it. Remember though that it will never be as good as a direct connection. It will most likely be mpeg2video and would require a high bitrate to show high resolutions (making it unsuitable for wifi for instance). It would also be useless for gaming since there would be some encoder lag. But I suppose it could be useful for basic web browsing, or email.

DVI (digital video interface) and HDMI ( HD multimedia interface ) are the same other than HDMI carrys the audio signal as well as video. :)

Yes this is quite possible and I have it working now with the 6.1 beta. Resolution is 1280x720, and the latency is about 3 seconds.

Its real use is to be able to display any full screen flash video available on the web on the TV, particularly those using RTMP/RTMPE with DRM that you will never be able to get a livestream link for.

Where can I download the 0.61 beta? Can I join the beta program?
