I have a router/hub in room-a.  Laptop (lenovo X1) connected to the router and HDMI cable to the TV screen for streaming movies.

How to connect to the 2nd TV screen to the same laptop in room-b 20-30 ft away.   Currently dealing with 2nd laptop which is too much work.  

I have this device (below).  Would that help?

You have only the receiver. You need also the transmitter.

Got it.  Any other way without buying additional expensive devices?   Maybe wirelessly.  Would Chrome cast work?

Yes and no, not 100%.
I have Google Chromecast home.
There is a delay out of sync between PC and remote screen of Chrome cast.
You must check out the distance.
