Windows 7: Wireless Media Center Help.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Wireless Media Center Help.

I recently got interested in watching streaming video on my TV set in the living room. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. My TV is limited to the following connections, SVideo and Composite video. I previously ordered 2 Linksys Extenders, the first I found out that it was designed for XP and would not run in Windows 7. I cancelled that one and ordered another Linksys, a DMA 2100. I tried to set it up but could not get it to work. A quick call to the seller and I discovered that I would need to go out and buy an HDMI cable. I have tabled this interest till I can get some more information. Is there anyone out there that knows of a Wireless Media Extender that will work in Windows 7, given the connection limitations I have. My preference would be with composite video, but I have no idea where to go or what I am supposed to be looking for. I would also like to find one that I do not have to mortgage my house to buy and also that is semi-available online. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. I can be reached at: I will try to check back here as well.
