NewActiontec Products: MyWirelessTV2 & ScreenBeam Mini 2 Wireless Display Receiver
I am so happy to be working with Best Buy again to review these two new Actiontec products. The MyWirelessTV2 and the ScreenBeam Mini 2. Both products give you awesome wireless capabilities in their own way to make your life easier.
First, I want to tell you about the Actiontec MyWirelessTV2. Using the MyWirelessTV2 replaces messy HDMI cables with the convenience of wireless, so you can install an HDTV anywhere.
If you are wondering what exactly does this do, let me give you an example. We have put in a home gym in our garage. However, there are no cable outlets in the garage. I can connect the MyWirelessTV2 to the television in our living room and then watch the gym television just as if I were watching the TV in my living room. How awesome is that! Now it’s possible to connect the television to your set top box without having to use an obtrusive cable.
What Comes In the Box:
- Wireless HD video Transmitter x1
- Wireless HD Video receiver x1
- Energy-Efficient Power Supply x2
- High-Speed HDMI Cables x2
- IR Blaster Cable x1
- IR Receiver Extension Cable x1
- Quick Start Guide x1
- Velcro pads x2sets
- Supports up to 1080p60 HD Video and 5.1 audio
- 100ft transmission range
- Low latency: <20 milliseconds
- No external Wi-Fi network required
Simply put, you can enjoy brilliant HD without the wires. You get the flexibility to network your home exactly how you want to, without investing in an expensive wiring project, or string wires throughout your hallways.
ScreenBeam Mini 2 Wireless Display Receiver
The ScreenBeam Mini 2 Wireless Display Receiver gives you the power to wirelessly mirror anything from your phone or tablet onto your HDTV: video & audio, pictures, apps, presentations, and much more. I love this thing! We spend quite a bit of time at a beach house that has no internet and no cable! Ekk, right?! You don’t need an existing Wi-Fi network or wireless router for ScreenBeam Mini 2 to work. We have Sling TV and Amazon Prime on our cells phones and now we can watch them on the large TV using the ScreenBeam Mini 2. You can share virtually any local or online content. Beam movies, videos, music, games, applications, presentations, documents and more.
What Comes in The Box:
- ScreenBeam Mini 2 Receiver
- USB Type-A Male to Micro
- HDMI Extension Cable
- USB Power Adapter
- Installation Guide
- One Year Warranty

For you office workers, you can bring this into a board room and beam your documents onto the big screen. It could make giving your presentations so much easier! No more need to bring a laptop.

I have a portable TV and sometimes I’d like to be able to watch it in my bedroom but the cable box is in the living room. This would be great to have! Thanks for posting.

this is something i need in different areas in our rooms where there is no cable to watch tv we have a gym room where i would love to have this
Kathy Ross says
We can’t afford HD with our cable subscriber anymore so the Actiontec MyWirelessTV2 would be a godsend. And the ScreenBeam Mini 2 Wireless Display Receiver would be perfect for my pc.
Amy Green says
What a cool setup! This would be so great for my family since our favorite moments are around our favorite tv shows and movies. We have so many traditional specials around the holidays, and this would be a big help.

I could not get sling TV to work with been Screen mini 2. When I called Been Screen help they said Been Screen Mini 2 did not have (MDR) digital rights for sling TV. I could cast YouTube and just about anything on my phone except Sling TV. This was just last month October 2017.
