I have Roku. I'm not very satisfied with it, but it only cost a  hundred, so I didn't return it because I will probably use it--ocasionally--in the future. I mentioned this to a computer repairman who was just here. He said that I should get an Apple TV box, so I went to Amazon to purchase one; however, I didn't complete the purchase, because I read some things that indicated that maybe that wasn't really the answer. Maybe not. What I want is a way to be able to transfer my computer viewing--all of it--to my TV screen. Can this be done with Apple TV? If not, how can this be done, if it can be done?

    Let's start with the basics:


    What Mac do you have and what version of OS X?

    people usually look at the questioner's profile before responding.

    No, generally they don't.


    AppleTV will do what you want.

    I would do that as well. In any case you are entirely free to not accept any advice given on these forums - and to approach people trying to help you with 'attitude', that always encourages further assistance.
