Hi,

Why is a random HDTV in my house showing the name of my PC? It shows the window logo then my PC name, but shows no content if I click on it. I've never connected this TV to the PC ever.
 

Yes you are. If TV and PC are both on the LAN, either wired or wireless, they can "see" each other.

Why this TV and no other? Because this TV is DLNA capable and a PC can be a DLNA server but apparently not yet configured as such hence nothing happens when you click it.
