Sharp Aquos TV will not display contents of DVD using Microsoft Media Player 11
I have a 26inch Aquos HD TV hooked to my computer
When using Microsoft media player 11, or when using VCL(DVD viewing program that does not use codacs) program to watch DVDs, I get sound but no video inside the display of media Player 11
I hooked up my computer to a regular monitor, and i get a picture.
what can I do to make this work?
I have updated drivers, codacs etc and nothing. My grafics card is a very up-to-date model. 9800 Nvidia GTX
PC and TV are connected via a HDMI cable
What can I do to get this to work?

It sounds like a problem within your vga connection on the tv check around and see if there is some firmware for this fix or right click on your desktop were there is no icons and select properties select settings tab and set ur display as needed.

Your Sharp Aquos 40D78UN is a 1080P HD display, and will provide razor sharp, vibrant images if provided with an HD signal.
HD signals (those that are 720P, 1080i and 1080P) are only available from the following sources:
1) Local "off air" (antenna) HD broadcasters (providing HD content) delivered via the coaxial antenna terminals.
2) An HD source such as a stand alone Blu Ray (BD) Disk player, PlayStation 3 optical (BD) disk, HD service provided by DirecTV, Disk Network, Local CATV provider or other satellite service delievered to the TV via any of the (3) HDMI jacks or (2) Component RCA jacks (RGB). Satellite and CATV providers offer both SD and HD service. You must have HD service to watch programs in the higher quality HD format.
3) Computer signals delivered via the PC (VGA 15 pin) jack - such as movies or video in HD or Netflix HD.
It is important to note that any signal source (regardless if 720 or even 1080) that is delivered to the TV via either of the (2) "A/V" RCA jacks, will be limited to SD or 480i resolutions.
An HD picture is only possible when the source is HD, it is brought to the display over HD cables to HD capable jacks on the TV and, the display is capable of at least 720P. If any one of these variables is missing or substituted, the picture quality will be reduced significantly.
CNet has a helpful review and discussed HD signals. it is only a couple pages in length and may help you understand even better. I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.
You need to set your MAC video resolution to the native resolution of this TV in PC mode, please read your manual to find out what that is, if the resolution is set too high, the TV will not be able to display it.<br />

There are settings on most DVD players as well as TV's that allow you to adjust the type of display you want. Make sure both the DVD and TV are set to the same display type (usually either 16:9 for your type of TV). If that still does not fill the screen you will have to use the Zoom function on either your DVD or TV. This will cut off part of your movie, but should allow you to fill the screen. Most DVD movies will also allow you to choose widescreen or normal viewing from their menu. Again, you will lose a small part of either side of the movie, but at least you will fill your screen.
I have a similar problem. The Sharp TV aquos appears to be shutting down my blue ray player and dvd recorder when connected via HDMI. They work fine and never close down when I connect them via the rca cables either single video connection or a composite 3 cable rca lead. I have 3 HDMI inputs on the tv and the problem occurs on all 3. Any suggestions?
You want to hook up the cables to any of the VGA input sets. Red= right audio channel, White= left audio channel, Yellow= Video. Don't plug them into the sets that have Red, , Green, and blue inputs. Just the set with red, white and yellow. Now you won't get HD from this since it's not bluray or HD-DVD. Just be sure you select the corresponding input on the TV when you want to use the DVD player. For example, select input 1 from the on screen display if that's the one you plugged it into.
