At this point, your TV is acting like a second monitor (as if you had two monitors hooked up to the same video card, which, you do).

All you have to do is drag the content you want off the right side of your computer monitor, and into the TV. You would need to have both screens active.

@leemcdowall...

your concern points to some adjustments of resolution from your set top box, as we all know all TV'S has fixed resolution doesnt matter what brand and the only way you can change that is through your source which in this set up is your Beyonwiz, please consult their manual and see if you can change the resolution in their video set up page.

this happened to me aswell what you want to do is click the start menu on your pc when it is connected to your tv then go to control panel then click printers and other hardware then in that window on the left hand side it has a small window saying SEE ALSO then click display then it will come up with the window to customize the setting then change it to the required size of your tv. Also if you want to use the tv as your monitor do all of that then drag your icons across the computer screen and they will end up on the tv hope that helps

Try going into your setup menu. Look for a setting for "Cable/Air". Try switching it to Cable and then doing a channel search. If you are using a cable box try setting channel to 3 on tv. Those are the two easiest things I can think of off the top of my head without seeing it.

Spectroniq PLTV-20NW32 volume only works on some channels


Hi lisadean767,
It is possible that without realizing, your TV is programmed to receive SAP or Second Audio Program audio. When this happens, your TV responds like this: when SAP is not being broadcast, you'll receive regular program audio. However, when the SAP audio is sent along with the regular, (English) program audio, your TV will automatically switch to the SAP channel. You'll know your TV is programmed to receive SAP because you'll hear the commercials in English and any other program in English if the SAP is not being sent. 

Check and see if your tv is setup for SAP. Let me know if this helps and if I can be of further assistance, Please rate this solution.

I can't get my iLO-2600 to completely work as a monitor.


The TV will always show as screen number 2 because the laptop screen will be found first. I use mine as a monitor for my Desktop.. However, for the picture to show what your laptop does you have to clone your desktop. The button should be where your screen properties are located.
