I want to broadcast my tv signal wirelessly if possible. Well, Kind of. Basically I want to have the tv tuned to a channel and somehow be able to connect to it and watch the tv on my laptop. I have tv input in one of my pc's that can accept the tv signal and do stuff to it, but how am I able to connect from my laptop and watch it while wandering around the house. What do I need? Thx

there isn't nearly enough bandwidth with 802.11b or 802.11g. You also have to figure in latency and delay caused by encoding tv signals and then decoding tv signals.

cable -> computer -> wireless -> laptop

there are lots of programs to do this, the names of which escape me at the moment. but it can be done on b with compression, and probably very little compression on g.

get something like SageTV and SageTV Client (for the laptop)

It will work better if the TV turner is hardware based. In fact, many of the better PVR programs work only with hardware-based TV tuners

quoted for my personal experience. run SageTV on the computer that has a hardware based PVR card, and then run sage client on any other computer on the network. I think you can even change the channels and stuff through the client IIRC
