Not sure how to use the media adaptor

Here is what my former configuration for a linksys wireless media adapter was:
*  Main bedroom had main computer with Mysongs etc.
*  Living room had a media adapter hooked up to a tv and sterio equipment (all in the living room).
When I wanted to play songs, a menu would appear on the tv (in the living room) and I could start them playing on the sterio (in the living room).

Now, I got rid of the tv.  The question is, can I still use the media adapter (like maby starting the songs from my main computer in the bedroom to play on the sterio in the living room.  The media adapter will still be hooked up to the sterio in the living room - it is just the tv that is gone. Or, do I need a tv for the media adapter to work (select from a tv menu)

Thanks

Bob

Well, if the menu came up on the T.V. and that was the only way to see the menu, then I guess you still need a t.v.

What did you use the select from the menu?  The T.V. remote control?  Is there a way to get the menu to pop up on your computer?

the media adapter has a remote control that I can select the music from.  In any event, I just got done with a live text chat with Linksys, and they said the media adapter has to be hooked up to the tv.  So, I guess I need a tv that is hooked up (along with the corresponding sterio equipment).  Unless you can think of a way I can start music on my computer and it transmits it to the media adapter (hooked to the sterio) so that the sterio plays it in the living room

Well, how close it your PC to the Media Adapter?  Do you happen to have a S-Video input on your PC?  You might be able to connect the S-Video output on the Media Adapter to S-Video input on your PC and use your PC as the "T.V.".  The only two other options I can think of is to get a cheap T.V. or get a T.V. tuner card for you PC and still use you PC as the "T.V.".

going to award you the points (and thanks) and open up another question asking the question another way (although I realize you may have already answered it with your post above).
