on the TV are actually running on the laptop. SO your running the video in some program like Media player or VLC. Some tv's have USB connections which is for looking at pictures. The problem is the tv is basically an output device and devices send to it to display the image.
I download movies to my laptop and watch them on my tv by connecting the HDMI cable from my TV to the laptop. Works perfectly but then I can't use my laptop while watching TV. Is there any other way to transfer a movie from laptop to tv besides the obvious (burning to DVD)? I don't have a DVD player.
I heard something about transfering images to a tv via some usb cable of some sort. I also heard that you can upload movies from laptop to your DVD player (depending on the brand). I don't have a DVD player but if I knew of one that did that where I just can just upload my movie from the laptop directly to the DVD player (without burning) then that would be great.
I know some dvd players will let you download movies directly from the net but I believe it is only through netflix or amazon. I don't believe I can go to random sites like I do on my laptop.
Any help would be appreciated. In summary I am asking if there is anyway for me to get movies from my laptop with burnign to DVD and without having my laptop hooked up to my tv while I watch the movie.
It wouldn't be so bad if my laptop had a remote but sony states there isn't a remote for my model. I'm a bit surprised at that. I hope they know what they are talking about.
NOTE: The DVIX play on my laptop has a button that says transfer video to equipment and tv is one option but I have no idea how to use it. Maybe I should look into it.
