The best information I found is at this particular on this exact issue: you need a media player that plugs in to your browser and can play windows media player for you. Fip4Mac seems to be the most recommended solution.This link will tell you all about it as well as link to download locations. Sounds like you'll also need Perian. Just download and install both of those and you should be good.

How to connect Satellite 4090XCDT laptop to ADSL?


You computer was set up to use a modem to access the internet.

You computer does not have USB, so you cannot use Wi-Fi.

You need to purchase a 2 x PC Card Type II or 1 x PC Card Type III Ethernet card. Then you can plug a Ethernet cable into the ADSL router.

How to watch movie direct from my seagate portable hard drive.


You need to connect the computer to the tv and the seagate to the computer.

You will need to connect the computer and tv by using a cable and connect them. Your TV has ports such as VGA, S-Video or HDMI on it to allow it to receive a signal from some external device. Your computer needs to have the same type of port or you will need something (some type of adapter) to make the tv and computer think they have the same type of connecting ports. Most laptops have an extra port for displaying on an external device such as a tv. Most desktops don't have an extra port so you will need to purchase a video (graphics) card that has the ports on it and install it into one of the desktop's pci slots.

Once you have the ports on both devices (tv and computer) then connect them with a cable. Then take the tv's remote and press Select Input so you can tell the tv where to receive the signal from (PC, VGA, S-Video, HDMI). Reboot the computer and the image should appear on the tv.

On laptops The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

We have a Samsung Smart TV. We cannot get the signal and have installed a Digital Satellite Receiver. We have a Magnavox VCR and a sony DVD Player. We owuld like to attache the same to our TV and watch...


Hi there,

Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.

Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.

As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).

Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).

Hope this helps...

I am trying to hook my tv up....what settings do I need to watch direct tv???


If you have a Sanyo TV with out audio/video connections, you will be using an RF connection cord between your TV and the satellite receiver. You will operate your TV on channel 3 or 4, match this with the channel 3 or 4 on the receiver box.If your TV has audio/video input connections, you will need to purchase rca connectors. They will have a red connection for right audio, white connection for left audio, and yellow is your video connection. The color codes will be on the input connections on the TV and the satellite receiver as well. You will than program the TV to input one or two, of the TV to receive the signal from the receiver. Use the satellite remote to control channels on the receiver box. When you are through watching TV, be sure to shut off your TV as well. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

I can't get past the ''searching for Sattellite'' display


Doublecheck your connections. The connection from the dish should be on "Satellite in", NOT "In from antenna." That is the most common mistake that is made.
