Is there a program, that will capture a stream from IE, and output it to an external source i.e. TV.

Can this all happen simultaneously or do you have to capture and record a stream, then play it back later? I would definitely prefer the first option.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks.

This might not be what you're asking for, but what if you used S-Video?

If your TV and computer both have an S-Video port, then all you need is to run the wire, and set your display settings to output. If you press the input button on your TV it should appear.

If not, your TV might have a VGA port, which we use for our computer monitors. If your TV has one of those, you'll need to buy a VGA cord, as well as a VGA Monitor Splitter of some sort. Check your local electronics store for specifics. Once they are both connected, just tinker with your display settings to make it perfect. This will ensure that everything is displayed, and without any illegal recordings due to copyright, or loss of detail.

Let me know how you feel about it.

Thanks for the reply.

Hooking up the PC to TV is not a problem. Ive gone a few rounds with a few TV's. This time its just the streaming video, not the whole desktop. Is there a way to just put the video out instead of the whole screen.

Thanks.

Well, you would still need one of those cable choices to get it to the TV, but instead of transmitting the whole desktop, and just video, would could use something like the Windows Media Center. Do you have that installed? That should allow for only videos to be broadcast. I'll have another look around too.
