If your TV has a VGA socket you could use that. If your computer uses HDMI then you could also use that.

Cheers for your reply, my current set up is laptop to tv via VGA and separate audio cable but it's a bit of a pain and not ideal!!

so for this season I'm looking to upgrade to a tablet or a new laptop with hdmi port just to make it less hassle and basically i want the best pic I can with minimum amount of connections.... So am looking for peoples opinions on what's the best solution.

Cheers

HDMI is great, as long as both the laptop/ tablet and TV have the ports.

One cable for video and audio and all automatically detected so no fuss. And the quality is really high, providing you have the bandwidth to run it on the laptop of course. But even on 2-3 bar quality it's very watchable on the larger screen. I always watch my Gamepass via the TV on HDMI.

Have a look around online and you should be able to find one for less than a tenner too.

I use a laptop, and find it runs smoother through the HDMI on the telly than directly on the laptop. Not sure if there's a reason why.

I run it through a HDMI cable (from a macbook pro) and the picture is surprisingly high quality. Jack a soundbar into the headphone socket and you're away.

It'd certainly be cheaper, and more flexible, but I'd be tempted to wait to see what the TV deal is before splashing that kind of cash (unless you're minted).
