indeed, the best option is to use the DVI connector of your Laptop and connect it to one of the HDMI plugs of your TV. You either need a HDMI<->DVI adapter (inexpensive!) or a DVI - HDMI cable. Example: http://www.reichelt.de/?ACTION=3;ARTICLE=69658;PROVID=2402
Additionally, you need to establish an audio connection from Line-Out of the Laptop to a Line-In of your TV in order to get the sound there.
Thanks Michael for the info and for pointing out the HDMI-DVI does not carry the audio. Can’t believe the lead in your example is only â‚¬6
Thanks for all contributors
