    Ultrawideband. I don't think it's available commercially yet.

    Depends. What codec? Pure 1080p has a bandwidth in excess of 125mbit, but a Matroska could be sufficiently compressed to work well within the confines of 802.11g. Need more info, son.

    You'll need a HTPC or some form of media player at the TV. Nothing overkill but it will need a bit of muscle to play HD (any modern CPU will do). Need a TV that supports 1080P on the VGA input (most do), or a video card that supports HDMI or HDCP out (not common). You will need a consistent wireless connection between the PC and HTPC, as your HD stream will be 4mbps roughly. Poor quality or signal won't cut it. That's the gist of what you'll need.
