Re: How do I connect my computer to my wireless tv receiver to watch tv
redphoenix - Software is not available to receive the U-verse TV signal over the network connection & present it for viewing. Only the U-Verse STB can do that. So, you need a video input for your computer that matches one of the video outputs of the STB. Two big names are Hauppage & Elgato. You can search for devices. There are three types -
The first one you do not want - It is to display the computer on the TV. If the device is inexpensive, be careful it is not this type. more here - http://sewelldirect.com/articles/PCtoTV.aspx Also, check out the learning center page
The second is a video input for one computer such as the Elgato or Hauppage. Check each device for control software.
The third is a Slingbox type of device that connects to the STB & is reached from ANY computer via the web. There are a number of mfgrs. Google or Amazon Slingbox to learn & find competitors.
