using a desk/laptop and a chromecast 'dongle' you can use the chrome browser to chromecast your screen to the TV (with the sound). Be sure to maximize the screen on the desk/laptop. to do something else on the pc you can use att+tab to get to other windows.

 

If you have certain models of samsung or LG televisions you can play some 4k content using an app on the TV itself.

Re: computer to tv

Purchasing another piece of equipment is not an answer.  Capabilities were removed, and there is no clear reason why.  

 

People want to change their Current Channel/DVR from their computer, without using their phone. It is very simple.  I used it fairly frequently and it worked great. Now, I can watch shows on my computer, but that isn't what we were looking for.
