    I have been burning my VIDEO_TS onto DVD-RW for some time, but it would be great if I could play my VIDEO_TS files directly from my Powerbook ( or any computer for that matter )directly on to my TV. If this is possible, what is needed to do so?

    Thank you thelox714.Stupid me! Yes you are correct it is a 15" PB.

    So my conclusion is that I need an RCA cable (yellow) and a minijack with an RCA split (red and black) for audio. Am I correct?B

    hi...just wondering how are you playing the Video_TS on your powerbook in the first place?

    i tried on my friends computer earlier today with Quicktime, Windows Media, Itunes, DVDPlayer, and none would play the video_ts.ifo file inthe Video TS folder.

    how are you doing it?
    thanks

    I simply drag the Video_TS folder on to the DVD Player.app icon or alternatively open the disc image (.img )in VLC. B

    Hope that works for you. B
