    Hello calmat,

    Could you confirm whether your grandson's Z5610 has a HDMI input port on it. I've read mixed things and to be honest, I'm really confused. If it does, this looks like the sort of thing you're after:

    Actually, Toms correct to use it natively... BUT, getting this:
    Buy the Ultra DVI/Digital Audio to HDMI Converter at TigerDirect.ca
    Would allow it

    I have no experience wth it..
