I am tired of my Google TV's lack of functionality (blocked sites, outdated apps, etc.) and would like to connect my HDTV to a full browser. I have a nice desktop in the room (that I built myself thanks to Tom's Hardware help!!), but it is on the other side of the room and I'm not sure my wife will want it moved. Is there a way to wirelessly connect the desktop to the HDTV?

If so, is there a way to connect the sound as well, or just the video? Also, how well does this work? Would it be able to stream video smoothly, like Netflix, ESPN3, Hulu quality?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I may just end up going with the HDMI cord as well. That looks to be the simplest solution. That will handle audio as well, right?

Correct HDMI supports both audio and video format. I just ended up picking up a 15ft for like under $20 or somthing off ebay. Works like a charm been using it for about 6 months now no issues whatsoever.

EDIT: Well im not sure on the quality of this cable but its under $5 for this 15footer:

As long as an HDMI cable is gold plated, there is no difference in quality.
