I would like to install a TV in the garage. Broadcast TV would work OK, but broadcast in this area is somewhat less than stellar. And running cable to the garage is not feasible. So, what I would like to do is to do this via wireless, i.e.
via my current wi-fi network. However I have no idea whether this is doable.
Before I start a [possibly futile] search on ways, means, & equipment, I need some idea whether this is even possible.
My thought is to attach a dongle to the [USB capable] TV that will allow it to access my existing cable signal via the wi-fi network. I do not yet have the TV, so its requirements are flexible. Current router is a Cisco/LinkSys E4200, but that can be changed. I've dedicated a bit of savings to this project, but I don't yet know whether it can be accomplished, nor what I'd need if it can.
Rationale for this is that I have several friends, sports nuts, who like to smoke
. At this time of the year, the patio is a bit uncomfortable, so we retire to the garage for beer & smokes, but there's a dichotomy 'tween smoking and watching the game(s)
. We also do a bit of laptop work during the smoking sessions when sports events are not extant
I know I've left a lot out, but the bare bones are here. Mostly I just want opinions/suggestions about feasibility before I launch a search equivalent to tilting at windmills.
So, any thoughts on the matter? Advice? Suggestions?
