How to wirelessly stream video/audio from laptop to tv?

How to WIRELESSLY stream video/audio from laptop to tv?. I have svideo out on my laptop but no bluetooth.

I know there are X10, Grandtec systems out there. Which one works the best? I would prefer a hardware/software solution that costs less than $100-$150.

Thanx!

X10 are only good for low resolution webcams; I would choose something like the Grandtec, which I have tried: http://www.smalldog.com/product/39586.  Be warned that s-video is limited to 400 lines, so use the VGA output of your laptop if you can.  For the TV, a VGA connector would be best, but if it doesn't have one, next would be a VGA-to-component adapter, or a lower resolution s-video connection.

Thanx for the response. How was your Grandtec experience? I did read some negative reviews about that. So I am a little hesitant.

One more thing. I was interested in browing the net (on laptop) and watching the movie (on tv) simultaneously. Does connecting via vga allow you to do that ? Or, does the tv show only the active laptop window always?
