    Bluetooth display possible?
    hey guys

    I have a MacBook pro and was wondering if I could hook up a 2nd display through Bluetooth? If it's possible would I be able to get an addon that plugs into my beautiful 32inch vizio flat panel that's mounted only 6 feet away. I hate running cords that far.

    Nope. Bluetooth lacks the bandwidth to transmit that kind of video.

    Yeah, most you can transmit via Bluetooth 2.0 is audio unfortunately.

    I know you can get Wi-Fi picture frames, but I assume you want to use it as a a second monitor instead and TBH I doubt if Wi-Fi would have enough bandwidth either?

    802.11n Wifi as enough bandwidth to stream video (that's how the AppleTV can be streamed to), but it's almost certainly buffered and not really feasible as a second display for your Mac in the traditional sense. (If you only want it to watch movies it's a different story).

    I don't see this as being doable at the moment, sorry.
