    I will do all the research myself, I just need to be pointed in the right direction. What I want to do, is be able to stream (wireless-ly) avi movies to my tv. I am getting tired of converting the movies I download to dvd format and then burn them to dvd disk. I just want to be able to stream it to my TV. I already have a wireless router. I am assuming I need some sort of receiver at my tv...

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    If you're willing to spent cash on a receiver why not just buy a DivX capable DVD player? they cost ~$50.

    Thats just about what I was looking for. I am not sure if they DO make a wireless one, seeing that it would have to be pretty fast to keep up with full motion video. Thanks for the link. I will definitely look more into this.
