I'm looking for a device (wireless Wi-Fi) where I can plug directly into the TV so I can use the Internet on it. I have tried Android mini PCs and didn't have such a great experience with them. The first device was the MK802, which I thought would do the job but found that it was very laggy and some of the videos on websites didn't play quite exactly how they would on a desktop. When I had sent this device back for a trade in of the MK808 model, I found the same problem with not being able to view all the Web content (such as Flash videos on websites) as I would on a regular PC.
I'm looking for a solution in bringing my TV to the Internet and I'm looking for a device that can achieve this. I have Apple TV but there is no browser app for it and the Xbox 360 browser doesn't have any Flash, so I'm kind of screwed here. Could you guys help me out with any solution(s)? Any devices?
There is the Raspberry Pi, not for the faint of heart however. There is no wifi support, but you can plug in a USB dongle. One advantage of this is that you do have what is basicly a fully running Linux computer at a relativity low cost.
Another option would be a Roku box which seems to be popular, but that does not have a web browser.
If you have a old computer, you could hook that up to the system. that would probably be the best solution. You would probably want one with an HDMI (with audio) output.
