why would anyone want that. Hdmi is not design for such connecting purpose. It might be more convenient to get a media player (hardware device). Bestbuy offer one this week for $99.

USB laptop to HDTV using HDMI
by rupeshnarvekar1977 / March 17, 2009 7:24 AM PDT

the idea is to connect my laptops to my HDTV through HDMI instead of Svideo or RGA , with the one at best buy it seems, I can just use stored stuff.

What is stored stuff?

Also, you never told what you planned to do with this. For example you don't play videos or games on such interfaces. It is however great and fantastic for our trade show displays. Cheap too.

USB 2.0 doesn't have the chops for this (not going to work for video or gaming.)

I think you need a device that projects your computer's screen into the TV. I sure like the thought of seeing youtube videos in my TV, nice thread.
