Thank you for the help.

I did some more research and you're right -- Roku 3 won't do it. In fact, I'm wondering a bit why folks buy it since so many devices now come with built in support for Hulu, Netflix, etc.

What I *did* find out is that Chromecast apparently does meet all the rqmnts I set forth. You need Google to set things up, but once that's done you have the ability to cast anything you can show on the desktop. It's also at a nice pricepoint -- $35 at places like Best Buy or Fry's (maybe a few dollars less online).
