    Hi skaps

    Step 1. download a demo from here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/content_provider/film/contentshowcase.aspx

    pick a 720p or 1080p (both are HD but the latter is higher definition). The minimum PC spec is listed here too.

    Step 2: Download windows media player 9 or 10 (you may already have these), or zoomplayer from here:

    http://www.inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_download.shtml

    Step 3: plug your laptop into the sagem 50 via its PC VGA connection - just like you'd plug your laptop into a monitor at home or at work. Not sure what resolution the sagem supports but try 1280x720 at 60Hz as this is the most common. This is the trickiest bit of the lot - you may find other threads that tacle this step in more detail.

    Step 4: And then play the demo using the player. You should then be seeing HD material on your sagem just like in comet.

    Good Luck

    skaps stay away from the demo's with DRM (Digital Rights Management) as they need you to have an American IP adress & won't work in the UK
