Postby PureEnergy8 » Thu Apr 05, 2012 3:10 am

I watch sky tv through my friends SKY GO account on my laptop. Can roku mirror my laptop,so it will show sky go on my TV.
Basically my macbook pro 2008 doesnt have an hdmi port,so looking to stream wirlessly from computer to tv.
Is it possible?
I'm have just purchased the Roku Lt

Thanks

No.

You didn't ask this, but your computer may be able to do mirroring later this year, although not to a Roku. OS X 10.8/Mountain Lion, scheduled for release later this year, will have features that will mirror to an Apple TV device: http://www.apple.com/macosx/mountain-lion/features.html#airplay

There is still the question on if your MacBook Pro (2008) will run OS X 10.8/Mountain Lion. According to this, it will, but that list isn't official, that is, from Apple.

Have you tried the Plex Sky Go Plugin?
