    I'm looking to transfer video wirelessly from my PC to my Television ... Are there any wireless video products that can do this?

    I don't think 802.11b etc. will work, since I won't have another PC near the TV to receive and process the data. Essentially, it would output composite video from the PC's video card, and then wirelessly transfer to a receiver that can input directly into the composite inputs on the TV.

    Any suggestions? This is to watch MLB.TV games on my TV...

    Thanks.

    Corey,

    I use this product from Radio Shack to send audio/video throughout my house to TVs in other rooms. I bought it when it was on sale for $69.00.

    I bought some high quality, long length cables from here:

    to hook up between the PC and the sending unit. You may also need a S-Video to Composite converter if your PC card has an S-Video out.

    The system works best when sender unit is mounted as high as possible off the floor. It is not a perfect solution and can be susceptible to interference. You need to experiment with different locations to get it to perform at it's best. I have multiple senders from different PCs to multiple receivers at different TVs.

    Regards,
    -Gary

    thanks Gary... This seems like a good solution.

    I did just find out that MLB.TV games are blacked-out in each team's home market, so there goes my main reason for using needing such a unit -- to watch Angels' away games which are hardly ever televised...
