    check for a tv out port on your acer and see if your tv has the same port. You have to then buy the relevant cable, i have done this in the past, its not that good watching on your tv, the quality gets even worst.

    you just need the leads-i use a 15pin think its called an rgb lead and a phono one for sound and it works great-have a look if your lappy has a 15pin blue socket...

    looks like this

    was around £5 local comp shop

    VGA thats it...

    Easiest way is an s-video lead, if your puter has an output? Check to see if your computer has an s-video output on it's graphic card. If not, you can pick one up that will do the job for less than £20, and you can pick one up on evilbay for about a tenner.

    I have my puter connected to my projector via s-video. As long as your files are of good quality, then the picture is great. Maybe not true HD, but still very good.

    Just checked your puter, and that's a netbook. Do you have any other computers in the house?

    Actually it makes it easier in some ways. Wireless steaming of the sort you seem to be taking about is almost impossible in HD even with downloaded files - the usually use for streaming is to transfer files or webpages to a device hooked up to the TV with a cable which plays it on the TV. An kit to transfer your laptop's screen image directly to the TV in HD will likely cost several hundred pounds and be at least as large as your Aspire One.

    However, if your TV isn't HD then it's a lot easier to send the picture and wireless senders for SD pictures are an awful lot cheaper. The main problem here is that SDTV is old and the standard VGA output (that your AAO has) can't go slowly enough on most PCs to output a signal that the TV can understand so unless the wireless sender you get supports VGA from a PC you'll need a PC(vga) to TV converter box as well.

    As your TV isn't HD it will be a bit of a pain to browse webpages as you'll only see a smallish section of them so you'll have to scroll around a lot but fullscreen video should work fine.
