I'd like to watch Netflix Videos streamed to my Computer over the internet on my HDTV TV but don't know if I can use standard "A" USB 2.0 connectors to do so . Both my CPU and TV have USB standard "A" connectors , but will they carry video AND audio? At what resolution? Do they make USB cables w/ Standard "A" connectors ( ie, rectangular connectors) on each end?

My other option is an old 15 pin Monitor connector from my CPU through a Red, Yellow ( ie, Audio), White (Video) RCA Phono plug type cable ( do they still exist??). This would yield no better than VGA resolution, Correct?

My System

Usb doesn't carry video in the fashion you describe.

If you have an HDTV it will have a "pc input" on the back that should have a native vga connection and a port for the audio. This will support 1080p.

Why can't I link video via laptop usb to HTDV usb?
I can burn a video file to USB stick and then insert that stick in my new HDTV's usb port, and the television recognises and plays the file. So it seems reasonable that a wireless (perfect) or wired (ok too) connection could be made to stream the content. No? I keep looking at the USB wifi...

Changing the Processor on a Laptop?
I have an HP Pavilion dv7-4273ds Entertainment PC. It has an AMD Phenom(tm) II p960 Quad-Core Processor. I'm hoping this isn't the reason that my games have been flopping lately. So, how difficult is it (if at all possible) to change the processor on a laptop?
