What is the cheapest easiest way to play my audio/video files from my PC to the living room TV I already have an 802.11B / G network for my computers... but I wanted to homebrew something without having to buy something like a "Slingbox" type product

I don't know of any homebrew devices. Any windows media extender device should work (depending on the type of media file) including XBOX360 (great excuse to buy one)

Before I got my laptop, I ran cables from the desktop through the floor, along the floor joists in the basement, and back into the receiver. It sucked having to run to the other room if I wanted to switch songs. The laptop makes things so much easier. Just an idea to mull over.
