You download the file with your laptop, extract the .hdf file to a usb pen drive and use that to install the application on the Foxsat, once installed you access the software using pretty well any web browser.Many thanks for this. Do i downoad this to my laptop or the foxsat hdr?
I would prefer to have a wired solution, is this possible ?
The router looks after allocation of IP addresses amongst other things. For the sake of one connection the extra complication of setting up a network without a router wouldn't be worth it. You would have to manually set up each device.Thanks for the reply. Is it not possible to wire the lap to the tv or foxsat All I want to do is play films from the laptop hd on the tv. I dont want to access the internet.
Unless the laptop has HDMI or VGA out then without networking the TV and the laptop there's no other way other than burning content to DVD and playing these back on the TV. You could try setting up a peer to peer network between the laptop and the TV.But I dont want to set up an network, I dont want to connect to the internet. All I want to do is play films which are on my laptop
My laptop has a VGA connection but not a HDMI. I notice that the Foxsat has a usb port. Would it work if i connected the laptop to the foxsat vias usb ?Unless the laptop has HDMI or VGA out then without networking the TV and the laptop there's no other way other than burning content to DVD and playing these back on the TV.

Much easier to connect the TV and Laptop to your router
Presumably you have a router as you are posting here, frankly I don't see the problem.
What happened to your original request Foxsat-HDR, can I connect my laptop to it ?
There's usually a 3.5mm stereo socket by the vga port on the TV and a similar socket on your laptop. You just need a cable with a stereo jack plug on each end. If it has RCA Phono sockets on the TV you need a 3.5mm stereo jack to two phono plug lead.Thanks for the replies. Both the laptop and tv have vga connectors so a cable connection there will give me a picture. How do I get sound ?
Right click on the laptop screen and choose properties. If you have 1280 x 720 try that. It will only fill the screen if your laptop has a 16:9 aspect ratio display.Thanks. I have done this and I get a picture which is the same as the screen on my laptop. How do I make the picture on the tv fill the screen as it does on the laptop
