Why NETGEAR’s Push2TV?
The Push2TV adapter works with Intel Wireless Display technology enabled laptops to let you easily view whatever is displayed on your laptop screen on your HDTV via a wireless connection. Getting started is as simple as connecting the Push2TV adapter to your HDTV with an HDMI or AV composite connector and following the intuitive setup that takes only a few mouse clicks.
Once connected, your laptop screen and audio is "pushed" to your big screen TV, and your TV basically functions like a second monitor. You can do just about anything you would otherwise do on your laptop screen. You can run any application on your laptop and play just about any media you can play on your laptop, all on your big screen TV and from the comfort of your couch. Surf the Web, access TV shows and movies online, and go anywhere your Web browser takes you. Content requiring output protection such as Blu-ray and DVD movie playback is not supported due to copyright issues.

Now I can keep my laptop near me, and not have to keep running across the room where it was tethered to the TV with an HDMI cable. In addition, the picture is now full screen instead of only taking up part of the screen before. I had to update the WiDi drivers on my HP Laptop, but then everything worked perfectly.
