Have a AMD Athlon Duo-core, 4 gigs of Ram, machine that I want to stream stuff (including internet) to my main TV in another room. Is there a simple way to do this?

Don't presently have a wireless router. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Especially if it's a reasonable way to do it. :thumbsup:

Hope this is in the right place, if not please move to the appropriate section.

what devices do you have for reception at your entertainment center/TV?
you would have to have a media center pc or something that can pick up the stream from your listed computer.
got an xbox 360?

Probably the cheapest way is with an Xbox 360.
It will stream most anything away from windows media player.
Plus then you have a game console: )

if your computer is a laptop with a tv out port then you can hook a cable from it to your tv. Mine uses s-video, works great. If not get there may be a usb dongle that will have usb on one side and s-video or vga on the other? maybe hdmi too?

Nope, desktop. If doing the X-box 360, can you run your computer like you're sitting in front of it? Or just start a movie or something on the computer, then run into the main TV room to watch it?

If your computer has one of these and so does your tv then you can do it with a cable, but you will need another cable for sound.

As mentioned before, the computer is in a different room than the main TV.

the 360 can only stream media such as movies and audio.
if you want remote control of your networked machine then you need something a little more robust like a small media center pc or laptop.
