I use a wireless hp multimedia receiver that shares all the MP3'* and pics from each computer in the house on the wireless network. You don't need it.

Just get a cig lighter FM modulator for the road, and you're all set.

Do you have your TV already piped to the speakers through the amp? If so, you might want to consider a digital media receiver from hp. It'll automaticlly share all the music on all your home pc'* and play it through the tv. Comes with a remote.
