    Best way to stream from PC to TV

    HI guys,

    Anyone tell me the best equipment to use to stream from my PC to TV ( TV is Philips "32PFL5404D" 32in HD and PC is Siemens Scaleo P if that helps)

    Basically wanting to be able to stream the football for next season instead of having to watch it on a pc screen.

    The Cheaper the better lol.

    Thanks

    The specs for your PC say you should have a:

    DVI-I to HDMI adapter included, connect via DVI-I to the HDMI on your TV, make sure you select the correct HDMI socket on your HDTV to make sure you get the pic,

    or just buy a tv out card and use scart

    As far as i can see the dvi-i connection is the top one, the 2nd one is the VGA connection, it should be the same pin config as this:, it should be the same connections as the 2nd one down, you would then either need a DVI-I - HDMI cable or if as it says in your specs a DVI-I - HDMI adapter is included just use a HDMI - HDMI and plug the DVI-I - HDMI adapter into the HDMI cable and then into your TV (hope that makes sense)

    Is this your … Is this your PC?http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/home/products/personal_computers/scaleo_p.html



    The top port is just a 9pin serial1 port whatever that is.

    Its not no, mine is an older model, its bizarre as when looking on net their are like 50 diff versions of the same name for a pc,

    For example going here xpertonline.co.uk/pro…284

    shows my pc as having a tv out which it does not, nightmare.

    Thanks for all your help, much appreciated any more lol....

    think thats my only option, thanx both of you :thumbsup:

    The picture won't be very good though, unless there is someway to make that better aswell? I notice it looks perfect in the tiny 300x200(whatever it is) box, but as soon as you go to full screen even on PC monitor it looks mental, you have to sit quite far away. I tried on 32inch tv before and it wasn't very watchable.

    what connections does your tv have? if it has vga u can use that but looks like quite an oldish pc there so not really built for this sort of job
