Wireless Mac to TV?

ive been watching a lot of movies/shows on my macbook and i really would rather watch it on my lcd tv..im looking for some sort of wireless transmission method for the audio/video so that i could play the movie on my macbook and it'll get streamed to my tv..i know of "internetvue" from addlogix, but their software only works for windows..

Get the cheaper Apple TV.

Any wireless transmission device (which doesn't exist because of copyright issues and bandwidth limitations) would cost you an arm and a leg.

HDMI transmits uncompressed HD. There is massive bandwidth needed to do this and HDMI was developed to accommodate these needs.

Some time ago I was in the market for the same device you're looking for now. After a while I gave up my search, though. Mind you, I did find what I was looking for, but the prices were unreasonably high. Not worth buying at all. Can't remember which devices I found back when I was actually looking for them, but there are a few here and here.

Do you have an xbox 360 or PS3 hooked up to this TV?
