Hi,
All you have to do in this case is change the resolution of the screen so it fits on your TV.
If you are using Vista which i expect you are just right click on an empty space on the desktop (on the TV) and select "Change Resolution".

There you will be able to change the resolution to one that your happy with.



Regards.

Have you checked the settings on your TV Malik? You usually need to go to settings on there and bring up HDMI. For example, if you have TV selected on the settings, you need to change to HDMI to view stuff on your TV screen from the laptop.

Emerson hdmi not working


Double check to see if your TV can support the resolution that your laptop is using. You can try reducing the resolution on your laptop to one supported by your TV.

If the laptop is configured to use the HDMI port as a second (in Windows 7, you can configure multi-monitor support in the display preferences) you will need to adjust the resolution for that monitor.

Failing that, try rebooting your laptop with the TV plugged in - I have found in some cases that this helps the system to propery detect a new display.

After confirming those connection on your T.V. and Laptop, you can just the HDMI cable to connect you Laptop to T.V. Also you need to choose HDMI on your T.V. settings and for your Laptop you can just switch the display by pressing FN+F4 or F5.

Hope It helps.

Do you have all 5+1 speakers connected? You need to go to the Setup menu of yamaha and set which speakers you have and which you don't. For example if you don't have the Center speaker connected, receiver will redirect and mix the sound to the other speakers.
Blue-ray film over HDMI should automatically output via all your configured speakers (nothing to be configured).

I'm connecting to a tv with my Samsung R610 laptop via HDMI and when I try FCN F4 nothing happens. This has previously worked fine but not now. Ideas??


Hi, Have you increased the resolution of your laptop recently? HDMI on a 1080p TV has a maximum resolution of 1920x1080. Also check if you have setup dual screens to not allow HDMI / TV output in your graphics driver software. To check, right mouse click the desktop background and click properties, then usually click advanced to find the driver specific functions such as dual screen.

Having prob connecting my laptop to a TV via hdmi


try playing around a bit with the display settings, there are not many laptops that are setup to automatically adjust to the dual screen setup with an lcd tv. Also, iv found that Not using the lcd as a duplicate of the main screen is a good idea, set it up as a separate screen...if you know what i mean, if you do it right you will see only yourbackground on the tv and no start menu bar or icons.... In this configuration you can set the resolution to the max for the best quality possible for your television.

by befault your dvd recorder is transmiting signals via component video, so what you need to do is this connect both cable HDMI and Component or just a video cable then go into setup and then select video out via HDMI your video will go off on the screen and then with TV remote slect input source HDMI on TV and it should work fine.

Thankyou
