I have a desktop PC with no WiFi and a Samsung TV [ES6710] that can stream media using DLNA, however I want to use it as a remote display over LAN to mirror my PC's desktop on the TV (I have ethernet pre-wired within walls).

  • I know about Chrome Cast and also tried doing so via an IPTV application and VLC stream over HTTP, which worked as expected but lagged with a ~30s delay
  • Majority of casting applications are used for streaming media files via LAN, rather than using the smart TV as a projector, with miracast doing the exact same thing in Windows over WiFi
  • HDMI to LAN converters could be an alternative, but I would then have to connect to the TV using two LAN cables

Is there a solution which is:

  1. LAN ⟷ LAN || LAN ⟷ Switch ⟷ LAN?
  2. An application for Windows?
  3. Able to steam the computer's desktop (Skype, Discord, TeamViewer screen capture)?
  4. Able to provide desktop video transcoding on the fly?
  • Question: Has the TV also normal (non-LAN) inputs? IN which case you could just connect DP or HDMI via a cable and no additonal programs are needed. – Hennes Aug 11 '18 at 14:37
  • Yep, the outputs are showed above on 6710. media.technicmarket.rs/2012/09/UE-32-ES-67103.jpg I want to use the LAN port because it will be easier for my dad not to configure e.g chrome-cast of any hardware of the sort. So it this possible ? – Деян Добромиров Aug 27 '18 at 9:19

I'm using a Steam link device for screen sharing over ethernet:

  • Newer Samsung TV's have Steam link applications available and was mainly developed for streaming video games from PC → TV, with it working pretty well for screen sharing too (minimize big picture functionality).
  • This is an older TV model though, and steam link does not work for it I am afraid. It is still on Samsung SmartHub which is different than the android TVs nowadays. – Деян Добромиров Nov 17 '20 at 13:10
