Want to view Dvd's on my TV!

  oo7juk 14:45 27 Jul 2003

Hi, at the moment I don't have a dvd player so any dvd's that I have I watch them on my Tft monitor. Have all the correct leads to watch them on my tv but when I connect the cables up I can only switch between either the tv or my tft. My PC is located in another room so it's quite difficult trying to move the mouse about without knowing where ur going. Is there a problem that will enable me to view both images at the same time, that will mean I can see what i'm doing.
Tried Dl knew drivers but no luck.

Many thanks to all who reply.

Seeing as DVD players can be bought from places like Argos for only £40 why not go along and buy a DVD Player.

For Argos' website go to click here.

yeah I know that, but I'm waiting for the recordable ones to come down in price first. Want to be able to view my Divx etc on my TV.

It will be an awful long time before recordable DVD players are down to £40. It will also cost you more than £40 to install a graphics card which will give simultaneous outputs to your monitor and TV set.

Pops, thanks for that, yeah I know I won't get one that cheap, going to wait till December and pick one up for £300.Do you know if there is any DVD players that play SVCD's DVD rips etc.

Cheers m8.

I bought a DVD player from Scan click here some time ago. It plays just about everything I've put into it - DVD-Video / DVD-R / DVD-RW / DVD+RW / VCD / SVCD / CD / CD-R / CD-RW HDCD / MP3 / Kodak Picture CD.

It was more than £40 but I'm pretty much certain that most modern DVD players will cope with all of these formats.
