Is there anyway to extend ubuntu to hdtv using wireless?

Very unlikely (I'm tempted to say no immediately). That would involve your HDTV being able to access Ubuntu via a remote desktop setup, which I don't think any HDTVs are capable of. It's far easier to simply connect it with a cable and use something like xrandr or disper to switch/get dual displays.

This "Google Answers (http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/785829.html)" page has a link to a product (http://www.provantage.com/ultimate-wireless~22096672.htm) that might be something to look at.
