I have a big TV hooked up to a Windows desktop via HDMI. I can launch VLC fullscreen and pretend I'm watching TV, or run BBC iPlayer, and that works fine.
I also have iPads and iPhones, and a MacBook. I'm aware its possible to start a server process under Linux to accept AirPlay mirroring from iPhones etc. (I saw a video demonstrating it on a raspberry pi).
However, is this possible using Windows? Or will I be forced to dualboot Linux/buy Apple TV?
