I have a few files I dnlded via torrent and they are HD clips. (i believe 720) Is it as simple as hooking up the laptop to the TV and playing the file? I also use VLC Media player, if it makes any difference. My current display settings (using the laptop's screen) are set to the max at 1024x768. Is this enough to view mpgs in 1080i or 720p?
You will need to give it a try. My son has a Sony Vaio and it does not play nice with his HDTV at all. My Compaq on the other hand will work with his HDTV at all HDTV resolutions. 695 mhz is going to be a bit weak for HD material though.
