I am currently running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit service pack 1. I am also using an ATI Radeon HD 5570 card. I have currently have 2 Samsung monitors hooked up and I just recently received a 46" LCD and mounted it in my office. I do not have the ability to run cables and want to extend my desktop to the mounted TV. Not knowing how to perform this task wirelessly, I went to my local HHGregg and the salesman suggested I purchase a ROKU 2 XS.

Will I be able to extend my desktop and use the TV as a 3rd monitor? I will have to transfer everything over a private network wirelessly. If I can do this, how do I set it up?

Thank You

You want to use the new tv hooked to the Roku as another monitor? Not going to happen.

You want to watch the videos or listen to the music stored on the computer? That's possible.
