    I cant use HDMI as well because laptop and TV are in different rooms, must be wireless.

    I had that option and now it just gor dissapeared although Samsung TV can be found on Control Panel Devices.

    Also i wanted to know if there is a batter DLNA server for Win8 to stream wirelessly atmy Samsung TV except Samsung PC Share Manager v4.2 which have some issues.

    Thanks.

    Until now we used to have limited user accounts and admin accounts.

    Now we have this distinction:

    Local User Accounts: Typical or Admin
    Online User Accounts: Typical or Admin

    Am i understanding this correctly?

    Press WinKey8-16.png +K, Your Samsung TV should be listed here if connected properly and supported.

    Thats when you logged in as "nikos" user account that you can change your own type form online => local


    What if you when you logged in as "administrator" ?


    Can you chnage the type of "nikos" from online => local as well, when logged in as administrator user?


    How come(when logged as user administrator) you can alter the "nikos" type from administrator => typical user and not also from MS account => local account so that the "nikos" password can then be altered easily by cmd?
