Any way to hook up PC to TV wirelessly to watch PC movies?

I currently have a Linksys 2.4 router and a wireless Wet11 for Xbox gaming but curious if there is a way to hook something to TV to allow PC movies to be watched on TV.
Thanks

Sure, what you need is what is known as a "Wireless Media Adapter" or "Digital Media Receiver". Basically these devices enable you to access photos, music and other media on your PC from the comfort of your living or media room with a remote control.....and all over your wireless network.

This market is still in its infancy, but several vendors including Linksys and HP have models available that use the 802.11b protocol.

Do a key word search on "wireless media" and "media receiver" on CNET to see what's available.

Is this also possible with hard drives? I am thinking about making a home theater network if possible by making a server and trying to network it with my t.v.'s to watch my movies that i have put onto my hard drive... My t.s.'s are "OLD" in technology terms... approx 5-7 years old...
