Default Video question - 08-13-2009, 07:56 PM

I'm looking to purchase a mini 10 or 10v. I'd prefer the 10 for the hdmi and hd screen, but the ram issue concerns me a bit.

My main purpose for this netbook will be to
1. Surf the internet on the couch in my living room and take it during travel
2. Play movies located on my desktop PC by connecting the mini via hdmi to my TV, and also to my home wireless network.

Has anyone done this or anticipate any problems with the movie streaming?

Movie streamin should be fine, altho I have had some problems getting sound over HDMI to work, with windows xp at least.

As a fall back the speakers on the mini can play the sound or you could plug something else into the headphone port.

You could do either of those with the 10 or 10v but the 10 is supposed to be better for movie playback.

Please do not send me support requests via PM.
