not 100% clued up on this stuff, as it sit's i use vuze to add my "videos/films" to stream to xbox to play through tv, my old man uses a usb stick in a dvd player to do the same thing but dvd player only plays certain file types, is there such a thing with wifi built in that i can connect to his tv and stream a list of films/programmes from my laptop must be pretty simple to use and set up . .

any help appreciated

Apologies, thought the cyclone ones were wireless, although you can get the wireless adaptor for 11 by the look of it, takes it to just over 50
