Question Screen share over wifi with tv

Hello everybody,

I'm just wondering if it's possible to share my MBP screen over my network to my tv with some sort of software. I don't mean playing my videos/music/photos in my tv, I just want my tv to show what's on my screen.

I know i can connect it with wire but that's not what I'm asking. Is there a software of some sort that can do that? Is it even possible?

I have '11 MBP and Samsung LED Tv

thanks

The only way I can think of is to actually hook up a second Mac to your TV. Maybe Airplay will bring such functionality in the future, but either way you'll need some sort of hardware hooked up to your TV.

Intels WiDi tech would be cool if it worked on Macs.
