Microsoft's Gary Schare demos some of the new hardware for Windows 7 at CES including network media devices and touch-enabled monitors that will allow you to multitouchify your current laptop or desktop.
ok when he use to play video in the LG screen using play to feature in windows media player 12
this is my question
1-that screen was it tv screen (you know cable tv and so on ) or it was computer screen (which u use that blue cable to connect it to the pc or laptop)
2- how did he make the connection to the pc was it by wireless or there is some special way to do it or what exactly
cause i can connect to my tv (not computer tv but regular tv ) using window+p to switch to extend mode then i can open any video with media player than move it to the tv screen so i think this difference than the play to feature
i hope u answer me cause i am still confused from the day i watch it in luancing windows 7 celebration
They are connected with a network cable.
A lot of people have asked me how to make their Western Digital WD TV Live work with Windows 7 Play To like I showed in this video.
In my demo, I was using pre-release firmware to enable pushing content from a Windows 7 PC to the WDTV Live (using the "Play To" feature of Windows 7). I know many of you want to do this as well, so I contacted Western Digital on the firmware release date
and received the following update:
"We are working with Microsoft on providing a WD TV Live product update which provides compatibility with Windows 7 scenarios. Although I cannot comment on the exact date, it will be made available sometime in the near future."
I know we are providing them all possible resources to help them complete this work. In the mean time, WDTV Live works quite well with Windows 7 as a client device that pulls content
from a Windows 7 PC using the local user interface of the WD TV. In fact, I use it this way at home, but am really looking forward to the addition of Play To support.
