    Default Is it possible to hook my TV to my all-in-one

    I have a HP All In One Computer. I want to hook it up to my TV to my computer in order to watch downloaded shows and movies b/c the screen is bigger. Is this possible since the computer only has USB ports, no VGA, HDMI, S-Video, etc?

    You'll need a video out...photos of the connectors or a link to the specific model would help.

    looks like your outta luck. You'd have to do some major modifications and I wouldnt reccomend that.

    Yeah, the minimalistic design of All-in-ones can be a problem...

    You could try a usb to hdmi/vga converter but IDK how well they work, any complications(lag/errors etc ).

    You could also try something like a Home Media Players(WD TV/ New boxee/Seagate FreeAgent Theater, etc)and either stream stuff via Ethernet/usb, connect usb devices(flash drives/ external hdds) to it, or store your files on it(if it comes with built in storage). They can come with additional features like netflix support, youtube, audio If you go this route, make sure the player supports the files you want to play(or know a way to convert them to files it support).

    Both solutions are pricey, but if you enjoy watching movies, it could be worth it.
    If you are building a desktop, make sure to read the instruction carefully. Remember todays mistake is tomorrows unstoppable killing machine
