    Hi Guys

    This is my first Post.

    I have a Sony Bravia 40inch LCD TV which I use as my PC Monitor connected with a VGA Cable from my Computer.

    Standing right next to this is a Sony Bravia 46inch LCD TV which I feel is a bit too big to use as a PC Monitor (IMO)

    But I would like to use the Bravia 46 inch for viewing photos stored on my HD so what I have been doing is Transferring some photos from my HD to a USB Key and then plugging the USB Key into the 46 in order to view them.

    But is there a better/easier way?

    Could I plug a USB Cable into my PC and then plug the other end into the USB socket of the Bavia 46?

    If so please would someone kndly talk me through the process of what to do and what icon I have to Click on the 46

    Not sure what to do guys

    Many Thanks if you can help

    Very doubtful that you can plug USB to USB between the PC and the TV to view or transfer files!

    You may be able to network the TV and use an inbuilt media viewer if its one of the new breed of 'Smart' TV's - you will need to list it's model number (preferably with a link to the relevant Tech page on the manufacturers website).

    If the TV doesnt have "Smart" features you can get a Media Streamer like the WD TV Play Streamer that would connect via HDMi to the TV and via your network to your PC and to the internet, about £60.

    You then could see all your photos/videos/Music etc from your PC on your TV and also add services like IPlayer, 4OD, YouTube etc.
