Netbook to TV Iplayer playback

  squirrelandgman 12:27 31 Jul 2012


I am hoping to get all the on demand TV services on to my 26 inch LG LED monitor. At the moment I only have a Acer Aspire one netbook and so can only connect via VGA. This is all fine and the connection works no problems. Playback of avi files is perfect and working as I would hope but Iplayer, 4OD etc is extremely choppy on playback. The playback on the netbook is fine but the process of transferring it to the TV/Monitor via VGA leads to issues with what appears to be the frame rate. Any ideas what this could be and how I could get around it would be greatly appreciated.

I've experienced exactly the same problem (netbook to 40" TV at 19201080 resolution). The same netbook powering my 22" 19201080 LCS screen works fine. I have improved matters by using the best VGA cable I could find but I still get judder. My BB line is 20 Mb/sec and using Homeplugs at my TV location I can stream iPlayer HD without a problem so 4oD should be very easy for the netbook. I've come to the conclusion the netbook is simply underpowered for the job.

Sorry - should have said streaming iPlayer through my Sony TV iPlayer App is OK even at higher resolution.
