Hi Folks

I have an Acer Aspire 7720G laptop. I often watch films from Netflix on there and would ideally want to connect that to my flat screen TV, to enable me to watch the films/programs on a bigger screen!!

The laptop has the following ports:

VGA port
DVI port
Gigabit Lan port
USB ports
S-video port
S/PDIF port.

My TV has the following ports:

HDMI
Rf-input
Scart
PC Input

Could someone kindly advice how I can connect the two devices up?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

I would think (but could be wrong) that you need a cable to connect your laptop DVI to the TV HDMI. However, would be worth checking your RV provider - I know that mine (Virgin) allows me to watch Netflix through the TiVo box.

Hi Folks

I bought the Google Chromecast dongle which arrived yesterday in the post yesterday. I attached it to the back on my TV and downloaded a film on my PC using the Showbox app.

However, what would I need to do in order to stream the film to Chromecast to enable me to watch any movie/show on the TV?

Do I need to install another app called 'Allcast'?

Thanks in advance for your responses.
