Streaming Television and Movies via DVI to HDMI Cable

vgi to hdmi cable converterWe don’t have cable or satellite TV down here at our house in Rincon Puerto Rico. There really isn’t a need for it, we are either working on our computers on the Internet or we are working around the house or surfing. Who has time for TV? Well, I guess we do, cause we have resorted to finding a new show every couple of months and either renting the seasonal DVD’s or watching them on Hulu, YouTube or Project TV. Yep, so we are getting our fill of non-commercial television one show at a time, but we are doing so in front of our laptops or in our offices, separately.

Last week I ordered a DVI to HDMI cable to run our 42” Phillips as a secondary monitor for my laptop and PRESTO, we are watching streaming Internet commercial free television in our living room on the couch. I have a splitter that I plug into the headphone jack on my MacBook which runs into our stereo for genre specific streaming radio and now theater sound on our computer.

This little guy cost me $6 on ebay and another $3 to ship it. So far, definately worth the $9 investment.
