How would you go about rigging a DVD player on your computer to a TV to play the DVD's? What kind of cable and ports would be needed for the computer and the TV? Thanks.

But what about the sound, how would you hook that up to the tv? Or do you guys just let it play from your pc speaker setup?

1/8" plug to RCA adapter, or optical ( Live Drive ) is how I would

Well, I have a Radeon 64 Meg DDR w/ VIVO (You guys can stop cheering now, thank you, thank you)... but anyway, it has the option for both Composite Video Out (RCA) and S-Video. I don't use the option because my monitor is as big as the television, so I don't even bother transferring over.
As for the sound, it depends. My comp's sound system is also better than the TV's, and in that case, you should just stick with your comp's speakers. If you have a reciever hooked up to your tv, you could do what dopey suggested.
