Ok, since both are "n"s then you have two basic choices to enable the 802.11n AirPort Express Base Station's (AXn) Ethernet port to connect to the TV: 1) Configure the AXn as a Wireless-to-Ethernet bridge (ProxySTA), or 2) Configure the AXn to extend the wireless range of the 802.11n AirPort Extreme Base Station (AEBSn).
If you don't really have a requirement to extend the wireless range of the AEBSn, I would suggest that you go with the first option: ProxySTA.
To activate ProxySTA, you must set up the Express to join a wireless network and then enable the Allow Ethernet Clients setting; both settings are located in the Wireless tab of AirPort Utility. The feature should work with any wireless network: a, b, g, or n; and 5GHz or 2.4GHz. (Note that the Express, which ships with firmware 7.3, must also be updated to firmware 7.3.1 for this feature to appear.) Configured as a ProxySTA, the AXn connects wirelessly to the AEBSn's wireless network and its Ethernet port is enabled. You can then connect a single or multiple Ethernet clients (using an Ethernet switch) to this port for network/Internet access.
