Question about Westinghouse 26" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV
I get a perpetual "detecting" message and sometimes a "Mode Not Supported" message when I try to connect my Windows 7 laptop to my Westinghouse W2613 26" TV. Westinghouse Technical Support said that I should be able to connect as long as resolution is "768". Has anyone successfully connected PC to TV through HDMI on this TV model?

I had a similar problem with a Mac Mini. The problem was caused by a mix-matched resolution (the Mac tries to use 75Hz refresh rate, TV expects 60Hz). The best solution I found was to remote into the Mac (I used LogMeIn.com) and change the resolution on the Mac from a remote computer until the image appears on screen.
Process: 1) Connect Mac to a normal monitor and install the LogMeIn server (or other VNC type application) 2) Connect the Mac to the TV 3) Connect to LogMeIn from another computer (preferrably one where you can see the TV) 4) Go to Applications / System Preferences / Display 5) Change the resolution to your TVs native resolution, and change the refresh rate to 60Hz

Try changing resolution and refresh rates. I have seen the same thing on Macs, and found that the TVs expect a 60Hz refresh rate and at least the Mac likes to use a 75Hz refresh rate. When the two mismatched the TV would not accept a signal. The easiest way to make the change is to use some sort of remote desktop login like LogMeIn.com or GoToMyPC.com.
