There are several divices out now that offer HDMI wifi to a TV.
Look at Newegg.com or Tigerdirect.com for offerings.

Manufacturers can't agree on a wireless standard for video/audio transmission. So the kits cost about $200 and they all use their own proprietary tech. It would be cheaper if there was a standard like their is for wifi- but there isn't.

For $200 you could buy another PC just for that TV or you could just get a custom cable from monoprice.com

The Grandtec USA is available for gaming, or even browsing on your Mac or PC or for presentations. It has 4 channels, and it has a transmission range of 125 - 150', plus it needs no software and has inbuilt menu controls and zoom facility as well. But you need to purchase a soundcard for adding stereo sound. Along with composite, RGB and S-Video output, it also includes a battery pack for traveling purpose and portable usage of the transmitter and all this has a price of $149.95.

If you have a wireless-N router, you should get a wireless-N adapter for that PC. Figure out which interface it uses (PCI, PCI-X, PCI Express, USB, etc) and get a Wireless-N card that works with that interface. The brand of card will not matter. Wireless is a little slower than Ethernet, but for web browsing and things like that it should be adequate.

My computer and TV sucks. My computer only has vga output and usb of course but no s-video or digital output and my TV only has composite and component; what is the best way (and hopefully the cheapest way) to connect my TV to my computer

nVidia makes a number of cards with various outputs that are compatible with a TV. Many work with either Windows or Linux. I can't speak for the Mac.

I think I paid $30 for my nVidia card, which is a near bottom of the line unit. Needless to say, I shop around, and try not to pay retail.

As an alternative to using cables, you can also use Wi-Fi to connect computers and televisions wirelessly. Because television is not normally supports Wi-Fi, you must install a separate unit between the computer and television. A common solution is called a wireless PC to TV system or in the [[digital media receiver. These products connect via an AV cable to TV and the provision of Wi-Fi connections to a computer at home.

Other Wireless PC to TV connectivity option is based on Windows Media Center Edition (MCE). If you buy a PC with Windows XP or Windows Vista with the included MCE, this system contains a built-in support for wireless connectivity to transmit images on the TV. Some of these systems also support TV tuner cards that will allow your computer to receive input signals from television. Finally, you can expand the capacity of a Media Center PC through a wireless home network by installing a complete DMA2100 Linksys Media Center Extender like.
