It was in red when you posted and is very apt in your case - have you got a graphics card which has the function? and is the TV high definition digital?

In your case, what connections do you already have on your laptop, and what is its model number and OS? Also, are you speaking of displaying your desktop/movies on a TV (TV-out), or are you wishing to watch TV on your laptop (TV-in)?
