Re: Streaming music and video to TV

The PS3 could be worth looking into. How are your music and movies stored on your Mac i.e. what format? If they're in a compatible format (like AAC or MP3 for music and MP4 for videos) you'll be able to stream them to the PS3 using a bit of software called MediaLink. The PS3 also comes with the BBC iPlayer.

Many TV fans are well aware of the Slingbox and Slingbox Pro-HD, products that let you access all of your local television content anywhere in the world via an Internet-connected laptop or WI-Fi-enabled smartphone. Sling Media has now introduced the SlingCatcher ($299.99), which handles this task in reverse: By connecting this device to your television you can access downloaded media stored on your PC and some Web video content as well.
