Viewing movies on TV from computer

  Legolas 14:58 22 Mar 2003

I have successfully set up my comp/TV to view my computer on my TV can anyone tell me if it is possible to view a movie played on Real One Player,DIVX or Windows Media Player on the TV all I get is a blank screen on the TV although the movie is playing on the computer through one of the Players I mentioned.

You cannot view it on both screens at once. You will have to drag realplayer over to the TV.

Well, I have TV-out on my computer as well and I am able to watch movies using Windows Media Player on both screens on on just the TV. I just set my TV as the primary screen and Standard view and then watch movies in fullscreen.

I don't know why you are not able to watch movies on your TV even though you can view your desktop on it. Just make sure that you haven't set it to strech the desktop horizontally and that you choose either Clone or Standard and make the TV the primary screen.

I am trying to find a wireless product that lets me transmit movies/music on my PC to My TV downstairs? Any suggestions would be massively appreciated.
