What you would need is a VGA to RCA converter cable. Something like this. Once hooked up, use your Fn key combination to switch the view from the internal monitor on the laptop to the external monitor, now your TV.

How do I use a USB to watch a movie on Toshiba TV? Or hook computer up to TV to watch it?


Hi
Most recent laptops come with a port to connect to a TV, depending upon the input ports the TV has. The two most common are VGA and HDMI, and you will need to check which of these each item has. It is then simply a case of getting the appropriate cable to connect the two together, and then on the TV select the input from the menu, and on the laptop, make sure that the external video port is active (usually a Fnct and "F" key - eg Fnct + F5 for a Toshiba Satellite Pro U200).
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

After setting up vizio streamer. I have singed up[ for netflixs and can which trilers but can not download moives what is the fix.


You cannot download movies to your Vizio streaming device. Do you download the moves you watch on TV ? Of course not. A TV allows you to watch movies, shows, etc.BROADCAST OVER THE AIRWAVES OR CABLE. Similarly, a streaming device allows you to watch movie, shows, etc. STREAMED/TRANSMITTED OVER THE INTERNET. So, if you can watch Netflix trailers on your Vizio, you can watch Netflix movies (but not download them). Select a Netflix movie, press Play on your remote and see what happens.

I have a Rank Arena 81cm LCD TV with a USB port on the back, however can't find the USB option to watch movies, etc. when a USB is plugged in. How do I watch things off a USB?


USB is usually for viewing photos only. The USB connector is too slow for streaming video. This connection is also used for firmware upgrades when (if) the manufacturer releases them.

Are you sure you have four hdmi ports? I have only one hdmi port and three usb ports. Be sure you are connected to the hdmi port and for some reason not a usb port.

I own a LG Plasma 42PQ2 tv and I want to watch movies from an external hard drive through the USB port but it does not show any movie files on the hard drive.


The USB port on the TV might not have enough power to power the external hard drive. Can you try putting a movie on a USB memory stick instead, and see if that works?

I have a 32 inch LED TV and i am wondering if i can use an external hard drive to watch movies through the USB port on the back.


Movies stored on a hard drive are not in a format that can be readily used by a TV. You need something to read the movie file, usually a laptop computer or a DVR of some type. Good luck.

I have the philips 120hz and some movies are smooth, others jump


I would advise knocking down the resolution. Try and use software, like red kawa, to convert a few of your movies to different formats till you find a decent one. A widely accepted codec setup is Divx/XVid (both are the same) and MP3 sound.
