Default Is there such a thing?

I have a friend who isn't tech savvy, and neither am I. Although I know more than he does, LOL.

He has a flat screen in his living room, and would like to be able to watch tv in his bedroom without having to buy a new screen or new equipment.

I was wondering......

Is there a way to hookup a pc monitor remotely, to the flat screen that has the cable hooked up to it? Does that make sense?

With so much "remote" and "wireless" stuff floating around nowadays, I am curious if a monitor can be used in one room and wirelessly attached to some kind of cable adapter thats connected to the tv?

Hope I'm describing this correctly.

Hi Chesterv you can simply use chromecast Screen Casting to get display across devices without any cables

A Chromecast can't do what the OP is asking about. I don't think there's a way to do what is being asked.

The TV isn't going to have a repeater function, let alone wireless repeater function. The monitor also won't have this wireless function built in either.

He will need to get a Chromecast or wireless HDMI dongle for his monitor in his room.
