1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

Is there a way to "beam" YouTube from phone to TV?

    I know i can use hdmi, but I'd rather send a wireless signal from my (RAZR Maxx) phone to a receiving box hooked to TV to eliminate wires.

    Is such a thing available? Apple tv does this with iphone i believe.

    I have a standard run of the mill flat screen tv with hdmi etc on the back.

    Thanks. I have no wifi any other options besides a really long hdmi cable? I'm looking at being lazy obviously as my family loves the funny videos but no one wants to get up over and over to play them. Most of the videos are generally short.

    You can purchase a bluetooth keyboard. I found a Motorola keyboard on ebay for $46.

    I believe WDTV Live can be used for this. I was looking into it when it first came out.

    How will the keyboard help. Sorry I'm not so tech savvy. But if the keyboard will do it I'll get it. Please explain a tad for me or direct me to an explanation. Thx.

    Unless they make BT keyboards that are capable of streaming content then I'm sure it won't help :D

    Wrong thread Paul? lol

    Here's how the setup works with a bluetooth keyboard. Connect your phone to the HDTV via HDMI cable. Then get a bluetooth keyboard & pair it with your Razr Maxx. With the keyboard, you can then control your phone and YouTube app from your couch.

    Here's a very detailed YouTube video of using your Android or Razr via your TV Part 1:

    Do you own a PS3? You can do what you're talking about with the Youtube app.

    My HDTV has a USB port. I can view content from a USB drive. I have always wondered if a USB wifi adapter would allow my TV to accept streaming content. I don't own a USB wifi adapter. But if I could find someone who did, I would love to try before I buy.
