My goal of course is to watch the great movies, so kindly provided to us by boomer, on my flat screen TV with my legs elevated. (doctor's orders)

I think we all know there's more than one way to get there from here. I have been putting movies encoded before (h265) on a Stick and plugging the Stick into the TV. In some cases I have used "Any Video Converter" to Re-encode using (h264) then Stick to TV.

My son wants me to use "Roku" to get where I'm going. That looks like it's gonna cost around $29.00.

There may be another way, my computer and my TV both have HDMI plugs. I'm not exactly sure what that connection will get me. I am reasonably sure that my TV screen will look to be the same as my computer screen, but what else if anything.

I'd need about a 10 foot HDMI cable (about $9.00) and then some way to control my computer from my living room chair. Maybe a mouse with a 18 foot cable?

Anyway this project is not complete, still in planning.

Thanks again to all who replied.
