    You will need the Veebeam model of these for OSX support. There's a review of one here with a Macbook.

    Most online media sources are stereo audio only.

    Something else you could try is install Plex media server on the iMac, then install various plugins like ITV Player one, then get something to act as the Plex client plugged into the TV. Any media you have should retain 5.1 if the Plex client platform supports it.

    If you can hold out, when Mountain Lion comes around in Summer you should be able to airplay or mirror your iMac direct to any TV with an Apple TV attached. Shouldn't be too expensive and will have other features that maybe worth while.
