    What's the easiest way to do whatever you're doing on the pc on TV please? Meaning, I have instructional DVD's that I would like to sit back and relax and watch it on the TV instead of on a pc monitor but this means that I will have to be able to use a mouse to navigate between the pages, help?

    Use a wireless mouse!
    You 'generaly' get a metre of cable and the useable distance is also about a metre, soooo If your PC is within 2 metres of the PC, there you go. (After that you're talking abour usb ext cables ect)
    Enjoy

    Appreciate the info but I don't understand something here, all wireless mice come with a USB connection of it's receiver so how can this receiver be connected to a TV?

    Another option might be to get a Firefly Remote from snapstream.com. It's really intended as a remote control for watching TV on your PC, but it also includes a mouse mode. I have one myself, and I think it's one of the best accessories I've ever bought!

    Look at it here: http://www.snapstream.com/Products/firefly/default.asp

    That's my thread Steve, I just gave a reply to that post so maybe you guys can look at my last post in that thread please? I already own an x10 Mouse Remote but my question is still unsanswered, I don't see how ANY remote will work on the TV without it's accompanying Receiver?

    To make this simple, maybe I can simply transfer my pc's screen unto my TV? I will connect my Remote's receiver to my pc and then I shouldn't have any problems, all I will be doing is controlling evrything from the pc, so then, all I should need is a converter cable correct? If so, which cable?

    next problem, the DVD shows/plays fine on my pc DVD rom but it reads "incorrect Disc" when I put into my DVD player, I have a built-in DVD and VHS in my TV, maybe this is the problem or is it becuase the DVD player has printed on it "DVD-Video" means that it only plays DVD "videos"? Any fixes?
