    Depends what you mean.

    If you mean another wireless system to send A/V from the TiVo to that display, yes, there are wireless A/V senders of sorts.

    If you mean directly from the 802.11G on the TiVo somehow directly to the LCD, no. The only way to display content from a TiVo over a network is with a PC or other TiVo.

    The TiVo wireless adapter is for Tivo-to-computer and Tivo-to-Tivo communications. Also it can be used to replace the phone line your Tivo uses to get guide data for scheduling programs if you have internet access at home. The Tivo wireless adapter just makes your Tivo look like another computer on your network. A fourth computer in your case. For that matter, the Tivo is just a computer itself cleverly packaged to look like something you'd want in your living room.

    You might want to consider a wireless adapter if you have a Series 2 Tivo and want to watch recorded shows on one of your computers. With a wireless adapter on your Tivo, you can use TivoToGo on your computer. It's free software from Tivo. Check out the specific requirements and features here: http://www.tivo.com/mytivo/domore/tivotogo/index.html

    If you just need to connect your Tivo to an LCD TV in another room and a longer cable isn't practical, an example of a wireless A/V extender classicsat suggested is: http://www.smarthome.com/76540.html

    It's 5.8GHz and won't interfere with your wireless network (which is 2.4GHz). Avoid a wireless A/V extender using 2.4GHz. It will interfere with your computer wireless network and is incompatible with it.

    Yes, but the adapter won't figure in connected the TiVo to the display.

    As said, the adapter is for its network connection to the outside world and otther TiVos and PCs in your home, not for sending A/V directly to a TV. You use A/V cables for that if it is reasonably close, wireless A/V senders if it isn't.
