Hi guys,

it's 2011 and I still cant figure out how to watch something from the net on my TV other than plugging my PC to my LCD.

Here is my equipment and tell me if there is something I can do or a software I am missing.

I have a Gateway PC, decent specs for a 4 year old tower. 1Gb RAM 250Gb HDD etc. Running XP and have wifi. Own a PS3 that has wired High speed internet from router, connected to a Samsung TV.

I know I can search for the ads online and can likely find them on YOUTUBE or Yahoo but don't want to watch it on my 19" PC LCD. Want to sit in living room with wife and watch on our living room LCD.

any suggestions?

You could connect the PC directly to the TV with VGA. I do that with my quite a bit older desktop PC (runs Ubuntu 10.04 though). It plays SD video well. I have to try HD files and HD Youtube streaming.

Without the PC at the TV, you could use one of the many DNLA media clients, and Playon on the PC.

Plug you pc into your tv or use your PS3. Honestly, Rolando we have Lots of threads in this forum discussing all the options so please search and ask questions in existing threads.
