    You do know that 1 ! or 1 ? just means the same as 8 of them you know!

    you can use an xbox 360 and media centre on your laptop

    the best way would be a hdmi cable, but not everyone has a port for that on their laptop.
    probably the easiest is to use your tv as a monitor, (regular monitor cable- most laptops have this port) you'd also need an audio in/ out for the sound to come out of the tv speakers.

    Do you want to see the screen on your laptop or watch files off of your laptop?

    Budget - Wdtv live
    If you're happy with 720p - Apple tv running xbmc
    Correct - revo running xbmc

    Bear in mind if you're using wireless you won't be streaming incredibly high quality videos easily

    Just put your films on a memory stick and plug it in your tv

    Memory stick doesnt have wires and its simple

    Cheapest method VGA cable from laptop to tv and an audio cable.

    If you want a tidy setup WDTV live.

    You could also look into a nas to store your files, then homeplugs/hidden wires and a Wdtv would be a decent set up.

    However if you're watching 1 movie a month then it might not be worth the outlay

    Bobski11: Here is the best solution that I know of...

    EZView 720p

    EZView 1080p

    Both products are line-of-sight in-room technologies with a range of 10m for screen projection or 5m for streaming video.

    What do you think?

    You are a wealth of information aren't you. Not all TV's have USB capability.

    I know of 2 wireless options but what is best is subjective so I will provide options that I am aware of but not necessarily the best:

    1. Certain Intel chipsets are compatible with WiDi which is a proprietary wireless display protocol developed by Intel.
    2. WHDI which allows for wireless HDMI transmission and reception and is provides lossless video. Unlike WiDi, WHDI is supported by several companies and consequently, there is a specification to adhere to. However, it is NOT standardised although it is being pushed as a standard.

    There may be other forms of wireless HDMI communication that are strictly specified but I am not aware of any that are standardised.

    Search on Google for WHDI and WiDi for more information.

    If you do not have HDMI and use VGA only, then I don't know how to use the VGA connections wirelessly.
