Using the LG as a monitor as a display for my PC.

Asked by: Phinias T
Hi Phinias T.

The TV also supports Wi-Fi Direct, so if the Operating System on your computer is Windows 7 or Windows 8, run Intel® WiDi. You can press the 'HOME' button on your remote control then run the Screen Share app on the TV. A list of available devices will be displayed on the TV and you can then select your computer to connect and you will be able to view your computer screen on the TV. The TV supports the connection over the Intel® WiDi 3.5 version. It is recommended that you use a 5GHz router for the best performance...^IFV
