    Hey guys and girls,

    I manage a restaurant where we often host weddings and other types of events.
    A common thing with these types of groups are wedding slideshows and other various presentations that get displayed on 7 TV's throughout the restaurant.

    The way we currently do this is HDMI from the laptop and split it off to some/all the TV's. To me, this way isn't as clean as I'd like with cables everywhere. There has got to be an easier/cleaner wireless way to display the images.

    Can anybody give me any ideas or solutions?

    i think the WD TV Live device will do what you are requesting, http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=330

    ...it's a DLNA device that can stream media from other DLNA devices, ..i.e. your laptop, if running a DLNA server, or if you've got one of the newer versions of MS Windows via the "Play to" feature... ;)
