No TV out. It’s a vanilla 3 yr old Inspiron B130 with only VGA, some USBs, a CAT5 and modem port. That’s it. I falsely assumed that since you can get a passive dongle with VGA to RCA composite and S-video for $5, that it meant I could go directly to the TV front mounted ports. My old 50" rear projection has a great picture and no signs of dying, but when I upgrade to LCD or LED, I won’t have a problem since they come with VGA and/or HDMI. Although for HDMI you apparently need a $100+ converter from VGA.
What I really would like to do is find a [U]wireless [/U]solution to get a VGA signal from my “big” desktop PC where the photos reside at one end of my house to the other end (50’) to the TV, rather than use a laptop sitting in front of the TV. The only reason for the laptop solution was as a relay point since it accesses the photos via wireless to the main PC. Radio Shack has something like this and then there’s the Western Digital Media Player that looks promising, but its CAT5 network input is wired only. Wonder if I could feed this input from a Linksys wireless access point? Seems like it should work but it ups the cost of the solution.
