    Fellas, Got a quick question. My laptop only has the monitor out and USB's. The Plasma TV we have has a USB port, RCAs, and HDMI. My question is will the USB show on the screen like the monitor or HDMI would? I'm using it partly for outlines and presentations from my laptop. Any ideas??

    No video will come through the USB. You can use a VGA to HDMI cable but..... Your Video card must support digital signal output through VGA port function. Most new laptops will have an HDMI out which would be the best case to use. It is possible to get an external video card that supports HDMI for your laptop depending on your slots = pcmcia, express slot, etc but they can be costly.
