    Streaming WBB to the TV

    I am interested in streaming the Clonezone broadcasts to our TV wirelessly and am wondering if the Blue Ray DVD players or home theatre systems that offer WiFi will allow this. They advertise connecting to Youtube and Facebook, but does that mean you can browse the net on the TV?

    I know I could just move a computer near the TV and connect directly, but would like to upgrade our stereo system anyway.

    A family member in the business told me there is a big advance being offered after an announcement in January. So keep that in mind, for what its worth...

    Re: Streaming WBB to the TV

    Just bought an LG smart TV in July and I wouldn't be surprised if they came out with a Clone Zone app in the next few years.

    For now though, I just plug my computer into the TV and it looks great. I think that's the only way to do it right now.

    I would suggest that also -- unless you don't have a computer close-by the set. Forget the wireless for the present and wait to see how tech changes in '12.

    Re: Streaming WBB to the TV

    I would suggest getting a BluRay player that can connect to the Internet for browsing, or if looking to upgrade your phone, the Motorola high end droids have docking stations that can enable the same feature.

    You can get a BluRay with Internet access for around $75 and add a wireless connector for $50. Much cheaper than buying a $2500 TV. Plus, if you ever want to upgrade, much cheaper to switch out the BluRay.

    If you are a Mac user, I wonder if the Apple TV will accomplish this task?
