I got a few spare older TV's that are not getting used much and i have been thinking about being able to stream video/audio (audio isn't a huge deal since i can run bluetooth with that) from my computer and possibly a PS3/PS4. I have an older TV in my bedroom that i was hoping i could simply switch from my PC monitor to that TV since i generally do everything on my computer these days.

I heard of some streaming devices but i don't really have any idea what would be the ideal setup here or even if it is possible. Either that i might just switch over to my laptop but it would be nice to switch to the TV in my bedroom with a click of a button.

I got a couple of TV's one only has a coaxial output the other has an RCA one (though i think it's possible to get an RCA output for that particular TV). Video quality isn't overly expected to go well but if it's really bad quality, i won't bother but let me know what i can do for this, thanks in advance!! :)
 
If the TV in your bedroom has a video input (yellow RCA) then you can just connect that to your PC as a 2nd monitor. If you don't have a video out on the PC it would be cheap to add one.
The TV with the "coaxial output" probably has a coax RF input ( a thread cylinder) as TVs never had RF output.
The quality of picture you are going to get on these TVs is probably not going to be worth the trouble since the lack of connectivity indicates older SD TVs.
