    Has anyone heard of a bluetooth video transmitter/receiver? I currently have a 13" Alum MB connected to an 50" Sony LCD using a Mini Display Port to HDMI cable. Controlled by a Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard. This works fine, with the TV being approx. 12ft away from you. However, I'd really like to find an video bluetooth transmitter/receiver to connect to the Mini Display Port to make this setup truly wireless. Any insight? :)

    Bluetooth doesn't have the bandwidth to support video transmission for such an application (3Mb/s maximum)

    There are wireless HDMI solutions, but they're rather pricey at the moment.

    Ahh, good point, I hadn't really thought about transmission limitations. I'll check out the HDMI option though. Thanks.

    For the cost of the wireless HDMI you could almost buy another macbook, bro

    Check this out, definitely not the cheapest way, but if you need a new tv, it would make the cost feel a little better.
