Does anyone know if there is a way to get the internet on a flat panel TV? Wireless preferred...
Specifically, I want to be able to watch Lynda.com tutorials on the big screen (they're QT movies embedded in a page). I usually have the time to study at night, after work. The last place I want to be is at the desk. So I figure I could lay down in bed and watch some tutes on the TV.
I've searched and found very few things. Wondering if anyone has done this or knows of things that do this- well.
yeah, your tv has to have an input for a laptop. most new tvs do and most laptops do come with connectors all you have to do is plugin
also some cable companies allow you to browse the web from your computer with your remote, i would check on that. i know ATT does.
pc? mac? you could just buy an s-video to coax cable
Problem with that is: TV is on the wall, access to the connections ain't that easy. Plus, I want to sit my lazy self on the bed and watch, which is like 10 feet away (TV is about 6 feet in front of bed).
Wondering if there is some sort of wireless device I can plug in, and then control it via laptop or mouse/keyboard...or some other kind of device even...
i'd recommend hooking up your laptop to your tv using a couple of adapters (SVideo usually is common). then get some wireless keyboard and mouse and utilize the fullscreen function for the video player. that's what i do at home. set the display to mirror.
cable service. that is the only option i can think of.
isn't this what apple TV is for?
yup, but apple iz expensive.
Apple TV doesnt do the internet...
read the comments. there's a hack to get bluetooth keyboard to work.
Has anyone tried the satelite TV to PC soft things? I'm affraid of paying 50$ and getting a 320X240 compressed feed with horrible sound.
