Hope this is the right forum. 
I want to watch Isky on 2nd tv in bedroom. I have a network cable running to a switch with one connection to a Tivo box. What do I need to view a web browser so I can  access the Isky website. I'm thinking maybe a media player of some sort, but can't find one that allows direct access to a web browser. I don't want an expensive solution, just something that will allow me to get to a web browser.

Good luck finding a media player with a web browser and more importantly Abode Flash v10 support, I don't think such a product exists.

Your best option is probably a cheap as chips 2nd hand laptop.

yeah, just get a cheap laptop and direct connect.

A netbook probably won't be powerful enough to run it smoothly. I've tried using my netbook and iSky is very stuttery on full screen connnected via VGA. entry level laptop is sweet as though.
