Anyone know how to hook a laptop to a Directtv DVR/receiver? I'd like to be able to play videos, I have on my laptop. Plus, be able to surf via my wifi.
Thanks

Just plug it directly into the tv. That's what I do, download movies off the net, plug hdmi off the laptop directly into tv. It's pretty fun surfing porn on a 65" too.

I use a dvi to hdmi adapter to connect my laptop to my television.
Should be the same hook up for you unless you have an hdmi output on your computer.

I got the Logitech Revue w/Google TV that integrates with DirectTV, Dish and Cable.. They're around $100 online.. neat little setup... Logitech is due out with a newer unit soon.. but they have been saying that for 4 months now..

The older unit has a full sized cordless keyboard, touch pad mouse and a few shortcut keys. Also lets you search channels by keywords and set up your DVR..
