2 people want to watch the same movie on diffrenet laptops

How to connect 2 laptops running vista, using the same wireless connection, to watch a dvd movie on both at the same time?

    I am so surprised that this is such a tough problem. You would think it would be a very simple thing to do.


    Since our laptops are only 15inch screens, we'd like to have a screen for ourselves instead of having to share a small screen. Also, we'd like to both use headphones.


    Being on the same internet connection, even ad hoc, you'd think we could just pop the DVD into one of the computers, hit play and be able to watch it on BOTH screens!! Very weird!


    I will check out your suggestions; but I'm a member of netflix and have the same problem there. We've tried using an S video cable from laptop to our TV but the picture is laughable!

Here is my set up. 1) Separate DVD player 2) Separate VCR/DVD 3) High Def. Digital TV. All are connected. When I go to watch a movie on my DVD player, the movie comes on but the sound of the TV comes...


I think either a connect is not either seated fully in to the TV or that the TV itself is the problem. You should check the instructions of the TV and make certain you have the right sound set-up for devices connected to the TV. It will be under some menu on your TV. Also check that the DVD is outputing a sound signal that the TV can use.

I purchased a SBG901 and have connected 2 MAC pc's wireless - 1 HP printer and 1 Compag laptop, I have one more pc which is running Vista on a HP Pavilion dv5 and visited the HP website to update


It might not be anything your doing wrong, the wireless portion of the card may have just gone bad. you could check this out by reconnecting your old router back up to verify it works or doesn't. If it doesn't work your wireless in your laptop went bad presuming that the wireless was not deactivated on the laptop. if it does work the Vista Driver may be incompatible with the new router, you may be able to hook up both routers at the same time which would allow you to keep using your HP system.

Hi, please find above Tutorials, 2 Video ones, and a written one, to show you how to connect up your Ihub.

Also if you have problems, install and run as Administrator, also install and run under Compatibility Mode for XP SP2. This should sort out any OS, issues.

I have an Acer Aspire 5536. The graphics card appears not able to play movies very well. It jumps and skips a lot when watching movies. The picture may freeze and the picture may stay moving of vica versa....


i think problem lies not with video card but with program which you are using. most probably you have too many programs loading on startup, vista is an os from hell and is not handling priorites very well, but try these solutions:

1. streamline your boot-up to only necessary programs, remove all auto-starting on boot-up like messenger, yahoo, adobe, skype, office and what else what you have, leave only and only what is necessary to run your computer. these program should start only and only when you need them!
2. run ccleaner or similar, remove all rubbish from your computer and streamline your registry as well
3. use "decent" and lightweight video/dvd player, one of the better ones will be free vlc player
4. if you have less than 2gb ram, increase your ram to 2gb
5. if you can afford, upgrade to win7 of same "flavour" as your current vista...

i actually on my own computers disable screen saver when i am watching movies, some savers are very intrusive.

What you really need is more bandwidth on the connection from the DSL or Cable modem. Based on the information you provided, you are downloading lots of information and most home connections don't have the bandwidth to support it.

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps
