I have a HP Pavillion dv9000us. I would like to play movies from my laptop hard drive to my SONY Bravia KDL-462500. This is a LCD Digital color TV. It has all sorts of connections including PC IN. It uses a HD15-HD15 cable (which we have).

Have tried hooking it up with this cable. Also tried using a S-Video cable. No input at all.

Do I need a software program or something to do this?

Any info greatly appreciated

You need to go into "Display Properties" on the laptop and set up primary (laptop) and secondary (TV) displays. Right-click a blank area of the Desktop and select "Properties" from the context menu. Under settings->advanced there should be a configuration box for using an external display device. Obviously when you've done this you will have to play the movie on your laptop (with Windows Media Player or similar) in order for it to appear on the TV.
