Entertainment center question

Hi.
We are thinking of purchasing a Rockwood 2702SS trailer.
Can someone tell me if I can plug a laptop, MacBook Pro to it to play movies? I haven't seen the unit up close so I don't know what kind of connections there it has.

Thanks

If your macbook has separate audio and video out puts then yes, you'll run the video to the TV and the audio to the stereo.

Not in my camper right now but I believe the "gaming port" in the entertainment center is just RCA jacks. So Coops1 is right about that. The television it self is probably where you would hook up a lap top and that would depend on the television that's in the TT you get.

In my TT, the TV has a PC(VGA) jack on the back, hard to use with the TV mounted on the wall. The TV also has a HDMI jack and RCA jacks on the side, so if your lap top has a HDMI out jack that would work.

It looks like it has hdmi out.

I use a Boxee & hard drive combo and hook it up the hdmi to the tv and the audio to the gaming port. I also have to set the boxee to convert the audio to analog, with hdmi only to the tv I couldn't get tv to pass the audio to the head unit.

I could use a mini display to HDMI cable.

Now if we can just make up our minds as to which trailer to purchase for next spring. Still lots of research to do.

Thanks again.
