I connected my laptop to my Samsung plasma TV and can view the desktop, etc as expected but when I try to play any AVI movie files on real player or VCL it just shows a black blank screen on the TV while playing ok on the laptop screen? Does anyone know how to sort this issue out?

Thanks

This is down to the video card not allowing dual displays.

Go to the control panel of your card and set it to dual display...
