Just a thought, was wondering if it was possible to get wireless to a small portable TV. I have cable and I have my computers and laptop running wireless, is there a way to transmit to a TV off my router?

Thanks for your reply, just before checking in I did a search and did find this one: http://aitech.stores.yahoo.net/wicatv.html
I will do a little more poking around to see what else may be available.

If u have a fast internet connection, there is something out there that will let you view your tv (and change the channel) on a labtop. You can be anywhere in the world as long as there is wi-fi. I saw a video on youtube, but I can't find it.

I think there is also a way to watch your tv on a smart phone like an iphone or something.

My dilemma is finding a Radio/Tv combo for our kitchen and doing it wireless, Where she wants it, it is near impossible to get the cable to it. For now my lap top is doing some double duty!

Hello OldPhil from Long Island, NY. This is TheEgg from Long Island, NY.

There is a think called a Sling Box that might do the trick. Its like $200 I think. Too expensive for a guy like me who lives in a cardboard box (some kids kicked my box yesterday). I think there are other similar devices out there.
