Watch movies from computer on TV

Please help. I'm a technological dinosaur and really battle to keep up. A friend gave me a movie on a memory stick which I would like to watch on TV, but neither my TV nor DVD player have a memory port. We have a 3-in-1 internet system from Swisscom which links phone, computers and TV. It sounds pretty simple but I simply cannot figure out how to get the movie to go from the memory stick to the TV, either through the Swisscom box or the DVD player. Can anybody please tell me?
And no sarcy remarks please.

Re: Watch movies from computer on TV

your simplest option may be to plug in the memory stick into a pc, and display the output from the laptop on the TV using the VGA cable or HDMI if your PC and TV have that...

.... but doesn't VGA give video only - without sound, in which case computer/laptop own speakers will have to be used.

HDMI cable - if outlets are present - is the best option.

Failing that, can you burn a DVD from the USB stick (using PC) and then use your DVD player to play?
