I am kind of dissatisfied with Chromecast

I had hoped I could use it so my TV acted as a second monitor for my laptop.

That’s not how it works at all!

Do any of you know of a product that does this?

Literally just plug HDMI to HDMI you cablecuck

Raspberry Pi + VNC would work for basic computer tasks. Is it being used for gaming or video? There are dedicated wireless HDMI setups. Also, powerlines: https://www.amazon.com/HDbitT-Extender-Power-Transmission-Support/dp/B016WB5W5S

Basic computing tasks sounds about right – I have the Chromecast already for video, I’m thinking more like showing my players a world map when we’re roleplaying or using as a secondary screen for dox etc. when I’m programming.
