The "BEST" way would be to move your Computer close to your TV and use a HDMI cable to connect the two and get a wireless keyboard. Another option would be a SLING BOX
. I have not researched these much but they have had pretty good coverage on Cnet.com. If you are getting rid of your Dish network how do you plan on receiving broadcast channels? You may have to invest in a Tuner card. Also as you may have noticed in February the contry is going all digital and if your TV is not digital (wich I assume it is since you mentioned HDMI) you will need a converter for the TV. You can always run the HDMI cable from your Computer to the TV cable stretches as long as 30ft are not unheard of and you won't need and expensive cable either. There should be a gap between the carpet and the wall that should allow you to hide the cable. If you have hardwood floors this could be a problem.
