Thanks for your helping words. I have to say that I'm completely new to
multimedia stuff at home (I only have an old DVD player and a 20 years
old TV); I was not even thinking in VGA-HDMI and/or laptops with HDMI
output (is this supported by X11 or just transparent for X11?)

concerning the LAN board of the TV: it awaits an DLNA server in the LAN
to show content from there and it seems that there is such a server in
net/minidlna; will test this when I have time;
