Ray, What are the model numbers of the dvd player(s) you have? Chances of them seeing your computer is pretty low. An alternative would be to have something like either the Google Chromecast $35 (however this is HDMI only) which will accept Any Chrome page from your Computer that you could push to it.
Another alternative would be something like the Roku, ($59 – 99) that you could install the Plex Media Player channel on it, and it could stream any local video that you had on your system, however you seem to be talking about watching Video from the Internet on your tv, and not local video on your tv. I haven’t played with the Apple TV. Maybe Steve could chime in on that one. Hmm, unless, as Christian pointed out, if those dvd player(s) don’t have a Web Browser installed on them, chances of you watching internet tv, from a regular channel like cbs.com will be very difficult.
