    There is currently no app that would allow you to fully mirror your laptop to your GTV. You could "fling" content to your GTV with the free Chromemote plug-in. With Chromemote your PC acts like a remote control and flings the URL. This is not the same as mirroring - bottom line Chromemote only works with content that is natively supported on your GTV.

    Another option would be buying a Chromecast and using the tab casting feature - or you could buy a Miracast adapter such as the TronSmart T1000 for around $30. WiDi might be another possibility depending on your devices. In the following links the options are explained in more detail:

    If you wait a while the Sony NSZ-GS8 might get the Jellybean update - and eventually the GTV Jellybean update is supposed to incorporate Chromecast functionality into GTV. But there's no telling how long that might take.

    You could use the free Chromemote Chrome plug-in to fling a lot of things such as YouTube and Netflix. But content not supported on GTV such as HBOGO won't work with Chromemote.

    I suggest you try the free Chromemote plug-in first and see if that meets your needs before spending any money.

    *One other thing that I just thought of is you can use the free PlayOn software for GTV to stream a lot of content from your laptop to your GTV via DLNA. Do you use PlayOn? It's not mirroring but it enables you to get a lot of content on GTV that otherwise wouldn't be available such as the TV network web sites (including HBOGO) and also Hulu.

    Thank you for details
    I use playon
    But my purpose more than that,
    Is to take advantage of everything
    And dispensing HDMI cable between my computer and TV

    I think i should wait for the update to see what can be done

    Yeah, the Splashtop approach assumes that the JB update hits the GS8 and you can hang on long enough to see how it would work for you.
