Well I would like to view the computer on the tv. And watch movies from off of the internet. If there are other thing in the area of video from the internet like certains sites and recording, then I would like to do that eventually. But being able to watch movies is a what I really want. Thanks before hand

I'm currently researching options for getting PCs pluged into HDMI jacks, but I haven't found one that really works well yet (unless the laptop sports an HDMI output, but not many do right now).
Thought I would check back again to see if you had come up with any solutions?

I connected VGA cable from my Pc(Windows Vista, NVidia GeForce 7350 LE To TV (Flat screen Sony Bravia) and I have the video set up ok. Audio cable: I am using a Y adapter, one end output from headphone jack from pc and the other is split(red and white) that I input in the tv's R audio. I can's seem to be able to get the sound. I have video, no audio. I really, appreciate your help. Thanks.

Hi, Matt: Thank you very much for the tips. However,I was able to get the video ok by changing the resolution on the pc. Audio was another issue, and I actually did it without using the Y adapter cable. I switched the cable from the speaker to the headjack on the pc and got the sound ok. Is that the right way to do it. Do I really need to use this Y adapter cable anyway if it works without it. I am not a technical persona.
Appreciate your help.

I am from Vietnam, and my English is not good. Hope you will help me.
My laptop have VGA and Svideo outputs. My Sony tivi (CRT, not LCD) have Composite and Component inputs.
Today I bought a VGA - Component cable like this piture:
I put VGA-end cable to laptop, and put Component-end cable to TV.
Then, I make new settings with my card graphics (choose output is monitor) but nothing happens.
With graphic setting, if i choose 800 x 600 and 60 Hz (on Monitor tab), nothing on tv. But if I choose 1024 x 700 and 72 Hz, some things flash on my tv. It flash, flash...

Ouch. That doesn't leave you with many options. Your laptop doesn't have any analog connection? What's the make and model of your laptop?
I have a Gateway FX model M-6850 FX with a ATI Radeon and Intel core duo @ 1.83 GHz running Vista 32 bit with like 3 gigs of ram and like 200 gigs memory
