The HDMI is an output only. Without a separate video capture dongle you can't use the netbook as a monitor for the DVD player. So either buy a video capture device or get a USB DVD ROM.

AFAIK you only have HDMI output on your laptop but no input.

Unless you have one of the new "smart" players, then you might be able to stream it to your Comp.
