  1. Sorry, new to the board and just posted this in the introduction area!


    Only the desktop background image is being shown on my TV, which makes me think I am close. I have adjusted to the screen resoltuion and color quality to no avail...any suggestions? I'm trying to watch a movie on my TV which is being played on my laptop. Thank you!!

    sounds like you have chosen to extend the desktop onto the second monitor/TV, if you want an exact replica of the desktop then you need to use "Clone" not extend, not all cards support cloning in which case you cant do it.
