Ideally the best solution would be some wireless, internet enabled TV but this kind of devices are probably expensive and I couldn't find any specific model. Most of them are advertised as "Internet enabled TV" but I'm not sure if they work only with specific applications like Youtube, Facebooks etc. or I will be able to display/browser any internet sites?
The other (cheaper) solution would to be to hook up some mini PC to the TV like Raspberry Pi with USB wireless adapter but they are not available yet.
I don't have any TV for this purpose at the moment.
In my opinion the best and most flexible option for your needs is setting up a mini HTPC that is dedicated to the TV/display. You can buy premade HTPC's or build your own. I recommend going with a very low power "APU" setup from AMD as they use very little power and don't need an additional discrete graphics card. They have built in radeon stream processors that are more than capable of displaying HD video, decoding high end HD video signals, playing flash/web games, etc.
So you hook up the HTPC with a wireless receiver (some of the APU setups come with wifi built into the motherboard itself) and simply stream video via VLC from a computer or server elsewhere, or setup your gecko browser how you want and have it be a dedicated device.
All of the other options can get you where you want to go, but the HTPC setup would give you the most options - no question about it.
If it's a question of money, then go with the cheap USB wireless HDMI receiver thing. I can't vouch for them though, as I've never tried one.
