AirParrot is an application you might be interested in if you own an AppleTV box. In a word: this program mirrors your PC or Mac screen on your television screen.
The program unfortunately doesn't feature much in the way of settings, therefore troubleshooting might become an issue, although we didn't seem to run into any problems on a Windows system except for the fact that some of the features available on Mac OS X are not available on Windows.
The icon for this program lays in the system tray and is accessible by a double click. When you do click it, you will see the devices which have connected to AirPlay like printers, AppleTV, etc.
From the preferences that are available, you may modify the quality of video transmitted. Depending on your connection, you can go all the way up to 1080p if your TV supports it and your network is able to handle it.
But in the end, if you don't have a console like the PS3 or Xbox 360, this program allows you to watch everything from Netflix and Hulu to YouTube videos.
