When playing movies on TV, the screen is blank

  Bailey08787 15:07 13 Nov 2005

I've set up my PC so that I can clone my desktop and get it on my TV.

The TV displays the desktop perfectly - and anything that I do.

But when I play a movie the movie just comes up as a blank black screen.

Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

has this ever worked? and what graphics card?

i dont think its any protection issue - it used to work fine on my previous graphics card (Nvidia Leadtek Ti4400 GeForce 4).

I've tried playing the DVD on several different media players - Windows Media Player 10, Divx, VLC - all with the same result.

I'm cloning the desktop as I have successfully done before with my old graphics card.

My new graphics card is a Nvidia Sapphire 6600GT.
