    I have an iMac and an ACD monitor connected, therefore I have no open port to connect to my 37" Panasonic LCD.

    I'd like to connect the TV to my iMac somehow, I'm wondering if wireless is a (reliable) possibility. If so how do I go about it?

    Do I buy a 'media router', such as the D-Link DSM-750? Then simply plug the TV's HDMI port into the D-Link? (I'm not network savvy at all.) Sounds simple enough if that's the case....

    Are there any better ways, or better products that I can use to play divx files wirelessly to my TV?

    Also, I'm using an Apple Airport Extreme Time Capsule, would the D-Link replace this or could I (easily) hook it up to my Apple router?

    Thanks.

    Looks like either of these might do it, but do they replace my Time Capsule or plug into it as a secondary router? If you plug into it as a secondary router I'm thinking it's a complicated set up?

    Does anyone have experience with these? Or, recommend something else better/simpler?

    Slingbox is geared towards sending TV content 'to' a PC, I'm looking for the reverse, I thought about Slingcatcher ?
