No just connect your Laptop to your HDTV. Does our HDTV have a VGA or DVI port? Does your Laptop have an HDMI port?

Not sure if that is or ever will be possible, but if you have an HDTV, and HDMI cable and a laptop with HDMI port like PS3, then you may connect that HDMI cable to your laptop and HDTV, and then you will be able to see your laptop screen on your TV.

Correct!  I plan to do the same thing in a month or two.

Laptops with HDMI, is for output only, as of right now.

what would be very simple would get very complex if you are trying to throw your ps3 into the mix.

YES YOU CAN!!! You can download some software called Display Share.. Search for it on google and i'm sure you will find it. There is quite a bad lag on the TV screen, but it works. Hope this helps

1. why on earth did you bump this? 2. that proram probably requires special hardware for it to work, such as special tvs or wireless display transmitters. but certainly not the ps3 and probably way more expensive then just using a vga or hdmi cable.
