I have a Philips Aurea 40PFL9904H and would like to connect my laptop via wifi?

From what I have read I cannot use the Mediaconnect as my TV is a 2009 model and as such is not equipped with that function. I can succesfully pair my iphone using the Myremote App but have had no success with my windows laptop.

Do i need to buy a media player and connect that way?! Any advice appreciated!!
