Intel WiDi and Miracast

I have the HP Pavillion dv7.  I've upgraded to Windows 7.  I want to use a Netgear Push 2 TV to wirelessly display my laptop screen on TV.  It requires that my laptop be "Intel WiDi and Miracast" enabled.  How can I determine if my laptop is enabled?  Or how do I make it enabled?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

You need to install this:

Have a look here:

The latest 3.5 verion of the WIDI supports Miracast but make sure you have all requirements:

The list might not be updated so in case your computer has newer hardware it will probably work as well..

Thanks.  The Intel requirements spotted the problem.  My HP has an AMD processor, not Intel.  So I have to purchase a different model, a PTVU1000.  This model apparently has a tranmitter that I must put in a USB port.  Oh, and, of course, this model is $30 - $50 more.
