Streaming from PC Blu-ray drive

My PC has a Blu-ray drive. Any way I can stream from this drive to my TV?

If your Computer has an HDMI connection and your TV has an HDMI connection then you will be able to view your Blue-ray films on your TV.

A little more information about your Computer and TV would help.

Thanks BRYNIT. Although both machines have HDMI they are on different floors - ground and first. Only connection between them is mains wiring, ethernet and wireless.

I guess I'm looking for some sort of server software on the PC that'll enable me to stream from the Bluray drive via wireless/ethernet?

PC is running Windows 7 64bit, and I do have a ZyXel DMA1000 digital media streamer device connected to the PC. What I don't want to do is re-format Bluray at the PC end just to push it to the DMA1000 device at the TV end, just for the odd occasion when I want to watch a Bluray disc. Probably easier just to buy a Bluray player and connect it direct to the TV?

From what you have said and due to the file size of Blueray films I also think it would be easier and cheaper to by a Blueray player.
