I've got it all set up. My macbook pro, a 42" HDTV, a massive 1 TB external harddrive hooked up to my airport extreme base station, and an airport express along with the program airfoil to play itunes and any other program's audio wirelessly. I'm only missing one thing.... I have to hook up my macbook pro to the HDTV using s-video.

My question is, is it possible to transmit video from my macbook pro to a tv? Essential connect my macbook pro and HDTV wirelessly so that the tv comes up as a second monitor that I can pull windows onto. I dont want to have to plug anything into my macbook pro, I'd like it to be a piece of hardware connected to the tv that goes through my airport extreme base station and is connected to my laptop via software. Anyone have any ideas?

So if I convert all my files to mp4 with a surround sound codec and put them in itunes, will apple tv be able to play them with 5.1 surround sound through the optical audio port?

I think...and I only think...someone else will have to verify, but I think apple tv requires h.264 encoding, which is still mp4...just smaller file size at better quality...I could be wrong though...as far as surround sound, i'm afraid I don't kno w about that one. Sorry.
