I have a laptop with a VGA output socket, and my TV also had a VGA input connection. I have tried to hook them together to watch movies playing in windows media player to watch on TV. I can get the the desktop to view on the TV when i try it that is fine, but when i open windows media player to start a movie, it doesnt show the picture on TV. all i can see on windows media on TV is a black screen were as I can see that the picture is showing up on the laptop. I have changed to the correct resolution as noted in the TV manual guide but it doesnt seem to help.
any ideas would be well appriciated.
