CONNECTING ACER 6920 TO TV WITH HDMI

I have just got the blu ray player to work properly on the lap top but i now want toconnect it to my HD ready tv via the HDMI socket on the laptop. I can get an image on the screen when doing normal computer functions but when it switch on the blu ray player it freezes and i get the message that the video card may not be compatible and not to run on two monitors because of clone mode.
Any ideas
Cheers
Gary

    What kind of video card did your acer come with? What kind of blu-ray player is it?(External of Internal)?

I have checked other sites and found out a way around it. Right click on the desk top and select properties, this will then give you the option to connect to external applicances which include the tv. All i need to do now is work out the sound and i am there.

My blue ray player wont play on my toshiba p505-s8980


How are you connecting it to your computer? I ask because my 1st thought would be that if it is by way of HDMI the problem is probably because your computers HDMI is for picture & audio out not in. the other piece of info needed is, are you using a proper blueray player that you would typically hook up to a TV or just a bluray disk drive that you connect via USB to burn and play disks.

What do I need to hook it up to an hdtv...what type of cables..DVI-D to HDMI?


Your laptop will need a HDMI output or a DVI output for HD video. If your laptop only has a VGA out the your tv will need a VGA or DVI input. You could use a vga to dvi adapter if your tv does not have a vga connector. They do have a DVI to HDMI adapter but there are a couple of problems with that. One you will not get the sound and the TV will only obtain sound from HDMI cable when connected that way and Two the TV will have problems processing the signal from the computer due to the HDMI will only process the HD signals at certain formats and the computer video can send out many different signals. I tried and I could not get my tv to process the signal so I got a video card that has a HDMI out and my blu-ray player works great.

Trying to get my Acer Aspire 7720 blu ray player to play on my lg LCD tv. player plays fine on the laptop but not the tv. Connecting thru a VGA able for video feed. Help please


Hi there
You will need a HDMI cable, that is of course if the laptop has HDMI out and that the TV supports HDMI.
This is the only way you will be able to experience the full Blue-ray HD experience through the LCD TV.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!!

Acer 6920 blue ray problems


I have had the same poblems after buying my lap top from Currys. I emailed acer and all they would say is that all of the warranties have been taken over buy PC WORLD who are the same company. They then said that i should contact the tech guys. The tech guys tell you to restore to factory settings which tales off anything that you have already put on the computer. I then contacted the software tech guys £1.50 a minute line and the bloke i spoke to said that it was the fourth call that he had recieved that morning and the advice that he gave me was to return the computer as it was less than a month old and state that it was not fit for purpose. I took the lap top back to Currys and explained what i had been told to do. In the end they installed Power DVD 8 on my computer which allows me to play all blu rays on the computer. However i still can't connect the acer up to my HD eady tv without it freezing. It appears that the software supplied is absolutely **** but acer are happy to let you get on with it. The only real solution is to obtain third party software and update your graphics drivers. In time hopefully acer will release better edition of the pre installed software.
It is a real shame as the laptop is great apart from this blu ray issue which seems to be a well known problem as it is mentioned on many forums.
I hope this assists

Cant play blu-rays on lcd hdtv connected with hdmi


The software playing the bluray disc (PowerDVD) will only play it on the primary display. You will have to set your tv to be your primary display in order to watch the movie.

This only happens with bluray and HD-DVD discs.
