Is it possible to wirelessly stream video from a PC to a plasma TV via a 802.11g network router? If so, does anyone know what kit is needed at the TV end and whether the picture quality is any good?

Is the TV connected to the router? Most can be wired to a router but if yours can do wireless that's ok. Most of these TVs however can be connected in some way to a computer. You'd just need the cable. If you bought it locally, you could start there. Most of the idiots at Best Buy wouldn't know a HDMI cable if you hit them with it but normally there is at least one person in the AV department that knows their bleep.

No the TV's not connected to a router. I need to do this via the wifi network so there needs to be a receiver at the TV end.

From what I can see, there is a 15 pin connector that you could connect to the video card of a PC or laptop and use the TV as a monitor. But I don't see any other type of connector that would work for connecting it wireless. Sorry.
