Sharing desktop with TV wirelessly

by parttimesheep / October 16, 2010 1:54 PM PDT

Is there software/hardware available to wirelessly display a computer's desktop with a television? I have a Samsung LCD TV that is hooked up to my home network, and don't really want to hook up a laptop directly to the TV.
