    Need some Netflix advice, Chromecast, Blueray

    I got the Chromecast for my pad in Costa Rica and it works great, no problema.

    So I signed up for it in the US but my TV's are flat and installed up high and there is no way to hook the USB to the TV so Chromecast I guess is out. So I tried to go through my wifi and couldn't get through the instructions to communicate.

    There has to be an easier way. I have DirecTV. Can you get Netflix through DirecTV? give me the easy scoop.

    Well my TVs are flat and hung high and my hdmi cables reach. Who uses USB instead of hdmi cables?

    But you are correct. JJ hit the nail on the head for rich people.

    So let's say you bought a ps4 for the young'n to play. How would you hook it up to the TV to let your kid play it?

    They have one with a mount that leaves a foot between the wall and TV. They have a wii and a blueray.

    My TVs are 1.5 years old. How would you know if they are smart TV's?

    also if you're in a restricted zone where you cannot get Netflix, HULU or Pandora, but still want to watch it on your computer, use this add-on:

    Smart TV's are not cheap, many guys here do not know what they are

    We are talking about guys with 21 inch monsters on a bureau that use the digital converter to get tv

    John listen to me.................

    1. Take the tv off your wall
    2. open up panel
    3. take out the c-45vc converter..small socket set needed
    4. now make sure you buy a digital micro converter which should fit in there, if not get nylon elastic strips to fasten
    5. Take the tuner out next and spin it to a 45 degree angle and re tighten, this will allow netflix
    6. There are 4 M5-7 fuses that need to be re converted
    7. Bring to tv store and they will do it
    8 re install them
    9. re route the video stream sensor so it points to the new fuses you installed
    10. Put panel back on

    BANG you have netflix ...how?? you made your TV a smart tv

    Johnny I have never steered you wrong
