Displays and Projectors : A newbie to Netflix needs advice!

A newbie to Netflix needs advice!

I'm thinking of signing up with Netflix, but I want to run their movies on my LED TV screen rather than a PC monitor.
The TV is an RCA, not specifically Netflix-capable, but I have a BluRay player connected to it via HDMI which is. The BluRay player has a free USB port, and the TV has any number of inputs of various kinds (HDMI, etc.).

What kind of connector do I need from the PC to the TV?

Any suggestions would be gratefully received. I don't know if this is exactly the right forum, but I'm hoping someone is knowledgeable in this area. Thanks in advance!

What type of video card do you have in your computer.

What model is the RCA TV

This is a little tricky depending on what you have but basically if you have a HDMI out on your video card you can connect that to your TV. You will still have to run a separate audio cable to the tv from the sound card of the pc also.

It would be simpler and much more convenient to get a media player like a WDTV. No fan noise, and it only takes as much space as a single VHS tape. Besides internet content, it'll play stuff off USB drives, or stored on your home network.

I use Roku boxes myself, they work great. Nice to have the wireless remote too.

Re: A newbie to Netflix needs advice!

do you have a laptop? I used to run HDMI from my laptop to TV and it worked fine.

Pity you don't have Smart TV, then it would come with built-in NetFlix.

Also do you have Xbox or PS? They have NetFlix you can watch from TV also.
