    Well you can get an external dlna connector. I'm personally no to worried about it. I connect my laptop via HDMI to my tv to watch all sorts of stuff.
    Also welcome to the forums I hope you enjoy yourself here

    Along the same lines...how does that screen share app work? Does the TV need to be connected to wifi in order for that to work?

    Sorry should have been more clear the screen share actually uses dlna so thats what the external adapter would be used for there are done newer tvs that have this feature built in but that can get pricey.

    To use the DLNA you have to have wifi. Go to the Twonky website for details on connecting and sharing. Also while there buy the software for your computer. It works and it's on special for MT4G owners. I can control what I want to watch on my computer with my phone, playing the media on my phone or pc.

    There are also several blu-ray players with wifi that would work to play media on your tv.

    I almost did it with Twonky through my playsation 3. The game counsel recognized the phone through the search for media devices option. I was able to search through the sub folders on the phone through the PS3, however none of my videos, pics, or music were available. Often times I received an error on my PS3 too while searching for my phone, so I think there's some bugs to be worked out.
