I have the new samsung which i can network with my laptop, no problem. 


I recently installed the Xbmc on my laptop. which is wirelessly connected to the modem which is connected to the Tv with ethernet.


I have a "Source" thing in which i can choose to play files from the laptop which works well. I can play movies straight off the laptop wireless


Is it possible that I can view Xbmc on my lcd tv thru this network i have setup? 


Any help is appreciated.

No, it is only a renderer etc with its own interface. XMBC is also an interface, a renderer and a source all in one but its interface cant be sent to another upnp renderer.

Over ethernet on the tv you are limited to what they built into it.its just you may be able to start and stop it from other devices on the network.

upnp is really a bit lame in that there is no security built into it, so if you have some "adult" content on the network you cant prevent some people from watching it with passwords.

Going a bit off topic, but slightly related to the topic :

I have seen many places like malls and buildings were they have big screens, plasmas, lcd'z all running some content _over_e.t.h.e.r.n.e.t. = cat5.

recently i was in a car park were some guyz were installing lcd's and i had a look arnd and asked them hows the feed and he told "oh, thts all over cat5, pretty fast aye " .. i dunno and didnt get into much details at that time..

but i do think it is possible to "s.t.r.e.am" some content onto the plasma just like a dummy output box - you may not necessarly be able to control the content what you want to view.

how much of this is true. can any automation specialists throw some light on this. on rgb over cat5. how can this be done. or if it cant be done and i have been misguided.....
