Windows 7: Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium with Miracast Dongle.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium with Miracast Dongle.


I am sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, but I took a guess!

I have recently bought the LG 42LA6608 Smart TV. I have been flicking through a horrendous amount of web pages attempting to find a way to stream my PC screen and Audio to this TV. Apart from the obvious VGA and Audio cable or HDMI cable it appears that there are only two possibilities left; Miracast or WiDi (Intel Wireless Display).

My main question; if I bought a Miracast dongle from Amazon then do I just plug it into my PC and it functions? as Miracast essentially is not a company, is there a specific dongle I need to buy that will work with Windows 7?

I look forward to any response.
