    I might be a bit confused as to what you are asking, but you can just connect your macbook to your television. I'm not sure why you want to go through your Apple TV.

    Just get the proper adapter - either mini-DVI to HDMI or mini-DisplayPort to HDMI, depending on what your macbook has - and connect it via an HDMI cable to your television.

    well the thing is that I'm subscribing to the website that streaming the tv stations and i can access them thru atv firefox but the firefox displays only
    small viewing window and there is no options for the full screen.
    That's why i was thinking to streamed wirelessly to the tv.

    I'm guessing your aTV is hacked. Do hacked aTVs have Remote Desktop abilities? If so, couldn't you run your aTV as the client and your macbook as your server? Not sure how you would simulate a keyboard ...
