I have just bought a samsung 32" LCD TV and a new dell laptop. I am trying to run my laptop through the TV so that I can listen to my music through the TV. I have bought a wireless card to put in the tv, this did not work. I have bought a RGB cable running from my laptop to the TV but this does not work. I have tried putting the laptop in 'presentation' mode to run through the tv, but yet again, this doesnt work.
I have a similar prolem running my Ipod through the TV. I bought a special cable to run out of the headhone jack into the AV ports but the TV just doesnt recognise that I am trying to play something through it.
Have you been to the Display Adapter in your Laptop????? you will need to set it, if you have the option for dual screen. Right click on empty Desktop on Laptop then click Properties\Settings\Advanced\Adapter
DVI (digital output) marries well with the HDMI input on a large-screen LCD TV. But! DVI was never designed to run audio, so by connecting DVI to HDMI you should expect no sound. A separate cable from SPDIF (digital audio out), or from the analog-out of your soundcard must be used - I am not sure what inputs your TV has ...
I have tried ths woodchip, but the its as if the TV doesnt recognise that I am trying to input something through it. It is strange because I can play my digital camera through it and it recognises that instantly.
