    I picked up this snippet from the phonedog article:
    "Wireless Display: Support for beaming content to an HDTV using a wireless display adapter that connects via HDMI."

    Where is said wireless display adapter and how do I get my hands on one!

    As described, sounds like a winner. Hopefully the HDMI dongle doesn't cost a fortune.

    I read on another article that some Miracast-compatible TV is required. Not sure what that is

    Don't know if it will work before the 4.2 update? Never mind, I saw the app... This is a great service but you have to have a smart tv for it to work and I'm looking at not upgrading or spending a lot of $$ for smart tv functions.

    I have the Vizio Co-Star (GoogleTV box). Wonder if that would work somehow? Have to wait until we get 4.2, I guess.

    I've got a Roku box (that I really like) hooked to my TV. There's a channel called Juice that is designed to stream from an Android device with an app called Juice for Roku. I'll give it a try when UPS delivers my brand new 32-Giga-biter.

    I think this is it own solution because from what I understand the Google TV can now stream play store purchases correct? There would be no need for the tablet at this point right?

    I can stream PlayStore video purchases with the Co-Star. I'm hoping that this new feature would be more like a screen mirroring feature so I could put up whatever content is on the N7 screen to my 50" plasma.

    My LED flat screen is pre-wifi enabled so I use the WII game controller to connect it to my home network.

    Will this work through that?
