Hello,

Happy Holidays to you all !!

I need to wireless stream content from my PC to my TV?

I do play a couple of videos on my PC, and would rather have them displayed on my HDTC.

The distance between the PC to the Mac is about 20 feet. My current setup is:

-- Panasonic 52" HDTV
-- One Macbook Pro and One windows laptop
-- Wireless internet (via comcast): I have hard wired it to feed my desktop PC and PS3. A hub can be added to the back of the entertainment centre to extend the wired setup to whatever device I can use to stream content to TV.

A google search brought up both the Veebeam: http://www.amazon.com/Veebeam-HD-Wireless-link-1080p/dp/B004CZ9U96

But I believe some Blu-Ray players also offer the needed functionalities -- can I achieve my aim with the LG BD590: http://www.amazon.com/LG-BD590-Network-Blu-ray-Player/dp/B0036WT1V8/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1293470075&sr=1-1

Thanks in advance for your thoughts !

I know you said wireless, but is it possible for you to run an HDMI cable that 20 feet?
