I Have a Samsung Smart TV (7150). I like to be able to connect my laptop to it via bluetooth. Is that possible? I have used Bluetooth dongles, to no avail. Although I was able to hook up my bluetooth keyborad to it. Any ideas?

no. bluetooth is unable to broadcast high resolution video since it has a rather limited data transfer rate.

to connect wirelessly to your tv you would need a more specialized device meant for streaming video.

it may be possible to stream this ove wifi if your connection is good enough but this might also result in a bit of lag or delay.

the best choice is of course using a physical hdmi cable.

Bluetooth won't work for that. If you want to use it as a main screen, use an HDMI cable. If you want to connect wirelessly for stuff like Netflix or anything that comes out of Chrome, buy a Google Chromecast.
