I have a DirecTv HR24NC-200 DVR. It is internet connected.

The TV is a Panasonic Viera TC P54S1.

How can I get Netflix to stream from my laptop to the TV and/or the DVR?

If you have wi-fi and Windows 7 you can do it wireless, or you can get a cable if not.

I don't have directTV but maybe what I do will help you.

I hook up a HDMI cable/cord to the back of the TV where it says HDMI1 or HDMI2, which ever one works, then hook the other end, the USB part to the computer. Then go into Netflix and watch what I want.

If you are wireless like Crazee Cat Lady suggested maybe a Roku or Netflix Xbox.

I believe what Loli is doing is simply using her TV like a monitor. I believe they are mistaken in the connections though.

If you have a graphics card with dual output or notebook with HDMI output you can do this.

The best thing to do for standalone application is get one of the devices listed above.

Yes that's what I am doing. I login to Netflix on the computer then use the TV remote to get to the proper HDMI screen and use the HDMI cord plugged in to the TV and the computer and that's how I get Netflix movies on my TV. Now because I'm using the TV like a monitor I have to use my mouse to pause, ff, rewind and even use the menu in the movie because it's really on the computer. The sound also comes from the computer. That's the only way I can get it on my TV without using an xbox. I really should get a Roku. I had one a while back but it didn't work. I think it will this one.
