hi guys
got an old LG tv, it has a nework connection, and i can get to the point where i can get the tv to see the laptop on plex, but i cant figure out have to assess the media from the laptop on the tv. Im wanting to use an old laptop upstairs to use for virgin go, and to be able to accesss all my videos on this laptop on the LG tv.

Any ideas or walkthroughs? just a little projoect during lockdown

TIA

Thanks guys, i had a play around with this and seems to work very well :) I didnt go down the HDMI route as i use the laptop to watch in the bedroom but wanted to access the media on it from the living room.

Thanks again guys
