Windows 7: How to use a TV as a Wireless Laptop Monitor

How to use a TV as a Wireless Laptop Monitor

I have;
1) Dell Studio XPS Laptop which has a broadband wireless connection to the internet via a wireless router.
2) A Samsung TV and a Samsung Home Cinema with 'Internet@TV' connected via a wireless connection through the same wireless router.
With my current set up, I can 'see' my laptop on my TV, and display on my TV, both the photo and music content of my laptop. far so good!
What I would like to be able to do, is use my TV as a wireless monitor for my laptop, so my TV displays whatever is on the laptop screen.
How can I achieve this and what do I need?

Hi Harrismith, take a look at this link D-Link’s PC-on-TV makes a wireless PC monitor - It may be what you need , Using an adaptor is the only way I know of doing what you want
