I'd like to know if there's technology out there yet where I can EASILY connect my laptop to my receiver for the purposes of watching video. I have Denon 985 and 3808 receivers respectively. My laptop is a Vostro 1500 with S-video VGA and headphone inputs. I'd like to be able to connect once in a while, not permanently.
Is there an interface that I could permanently connect to the receiver where I could connect the laptop?
I'm imagining that I could go directly into my monitors (Panasonic TH 50 and 42 inch models) but they're wall mounted and I'd have to rig some cabling to the back of the monitors that would potentially be unsightly (hanging down the bottom?)
