I’m still debating if I want to go the two monitor route or one ultra wide route. I definitely like having two monitors when working, but that doesn’t apply much at home where I’m gaming, watching videos, and doing smaller projects. Really I just want to be able to have a small video going in the corner while I do something that takes up most of the screen, so an ultra wide would do that just as well.
See to me that would not be that big of a deal, because the older less good monitor would be for Discord, videos, browsing, etc… while I did my main task on the first screen. It doesn’t have to look amazing just good enough for a clear video and reading text.
Slightly related but not really related, and I apologize in advance for hijacking this thread, but does anyone know a good reliable way to wirelessly connect my PC to my TV to use as a second monitor?
My TV and PC are on different floors in my house, so my past solution of just a long-ass HDMI cable isn’t really possible. I’ve been reading about wireless HDMI connectors and other methods, but have never seen these in action. I’m not interested in streaming games to my TV, I just want to be able to watch video files on my PC on my TV downstairs without having to go through the trouble of copying the files onto a USB drive and then playing them through my PS4.
Chromecast is probably a good choice. You can also install the steamlink software on a chromecast or firetv stick potentially. What I do is since my TV is a firetv I am running the steamlink apk on it and that would technically work on wifi, though I have everything on ethernet. That said, I havn’t tested running like 4k streaming or 4k gaming on it, and some people think you need more hardware for that like a nvidia shield.
