Easiest was to set up a tv as a second monitor.

What is the easiest way to set up a tv as a 2nd monitor on a G5?

Let me explain what I am trying to do. I use an EyeTV device to record tv shows to my mac. That way I can watch them when I want and can zap past the commercials. However, I can only watch the shows on my mac. I was thinking it would be cool if I could set up a tv as a second monitor and have the tv display what on my main monitor. That way I could get a long rca or s-video cable and run it to my tv in my living room and watch the shows on that. I could also get a bluetooth mouse and keyboard so I could control everything.

Is there any way to get this to work? Is it just a dumb idea, or would it be slick? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, I was thinking about the mouse and keyboard aspect more so than the Tv, would bluetooth reach from you're tv, into other room and control the mac from there? Dunno how far of a stretch this is...
