I am not completely familiar with this product, but I believe you can use it to view videos/music/pictures from another computer. Have to connect a crossover cable to your computer, or use a router/hub/switch.

They also make a wireless version.

That requires a LAN connection. He said his tv is downstairs and Computer is upstairs.

What you'll need is a wireless router and a wireless media player.

And a wireless router or access point (if you already have a router.)
