Earlier this week we hooked our new Plasma HDTV up to our router using a LAN connector. My laptop computer that was on at the time automatically picked up on the new device.
Cool … now I can do things like watch YouTube videos on the TV instead of my laptop or when I take new pictures and upload them to my computer I can set them up so that I can see them in a slide show on my TV.
I’m loving this!
I still have to explore all of the things I can do now that our TV has an internet connection but it’s kind of neat. It would probably be even cooler if I had Windows 7 on my computer, but it seems to work well enough with Windows XP.
Do you have your HDTV connected to the internet either wirelessly or via a LAN cable like we do? If you do … do you use it to view things on the internet?
