    I have a flat panel tv in one of my workrooms and the freeview tv reception is poor. Is it possible to connect it to the internet, without using a computer, so i can watch tv via tv catchup etc ?

    It only has a scart, vga and rf aerial connector and doesnt have a usb.

    Thanks

    Simon.

    I have a device that hooks into the charging of the iPhone 4s and displays whatever is on the iPhone onto the TV screen using a HDMI cable hooked to the device to the TV.

    Looks like this. But for some reason is not work with iPad 1.

    You need first connect broadband connection with an ethernet cable  then follow the instructions step by step and once connected to network press the netcast button on the remote and enjoy the internet on TV.

    Can't wait for my Smart Samsung TV coming out the first week of April. I'm freakinly excited. Much more excited having this than my wife. Oh yeah, I forgot.... I'm not yet married.
