    My 5-yr old laptop just has USB ports (no HDMI).
    My new(er) Samsung TV has a USB and a USB(HDD) port (in addition to HDMI's). Can I use a USB cable to stream Netflix from my laptop to TV? If so - to which USB port on the TV?
    Thanks

    The USB port is not a video input port. It's probably used to play files from a USB hard drive. So if you have a USB drive with a lot of movies on it, you can play them on the TV.
