    I want to connect my mac mini to my vizio m220va tv. My mac mini is already connected to a computer monitor and the tv is across the room. I was wondering if there was a way to wirelessly connect the min and the tv so i can use it as a second monitor. I know that some vizio tvs can connect to the internet but I don't have one of those.

    I would like help with this issue if anyone can help me. I would even appreciate a way that requires wires but I can do it in a non hassle way.

    Depending on how far the other television is, you can always invest in an HDMI switch and the necessary cables and run the cables to the TV. I'd suggest monoprice.com if you choose to go this route.

    If you just want to stream videos to the television, you can alternatively go with an Apple TV, but that's more expensive than the HDMI cables and switcher and would require your videos being in a format the ATV can understand or require you to jailbreak the ATV.
