I would like to watch some ESPN3 sports live stream on my TV. Is there a simple way to do this . the TV is DLNA capable and connected to a home network by wired ethernet as are my computers. Thanks

It is possible to stream ESPN channels using other devices connected to the TV, but this requires a subscription of some kind to a TV service which includes the ESPN channel that you want to watch plus the WatchESPN app: http://espn.go.com/watchespn/apps
It looks like the simplest way for me is to connect my windows tablet to the TV via HDMI. I was hoping to be able to just stream from my desktop directly to TV via ethernet which saves me connecting a cable to the back of the TV which is hard to get to.
I have not heard of any screen mirroring solutions for a smart TV that use a wired home network to connect to a PC. DLNA only works for streaming files on a wired home network. It doesn't support mirroring the screen.
Miracast, WiDi and other wireless screen mirroring solutions require the the TV to be in the same room, in close proximity. They can't use your home network.
Just get one of the supported streaming media devices for the TV. http://espn.go.com/watchespn/apps
