Tablet - TV Question

Hi fellow members,

I have a tablet and I want to watch a DVD series on my tablet. Can I do that and can I plug my tablet into my and have it stream through?

1. What kind of tablet? Kinda important information, don't you think?

2. Plug your tablet into what?

I can tell you in general, tablets obviously don't have DVD drives. If we're talking about commercially made DVDs that hold a TV series, you would have to rip the DVDs to a computer and transfer the files to your tablet. That would require breaking the copy protection, and we're not going to talk about that here.

If you have a surface pro or other tablet with full Windows 8,then you can connect an external dvd player.

Re: Tablet - TV Question

Assuming his sentence that's missing a word translates to him wanting to stream from his tablet to his TV, there'd be little point in connecting an external DVD player into the tablet rather than directly into the TV.

Re: Tablet - TV Question

I wonder if you could do it with SlingBox? If you can hook your TV to it, why not your DVD Player?
