Hooking up laptop to HD TV via HDMI
WinkyDo you love me?It's funny if you think about the universeRegistered Userregular
So, I've got this sweet HD TV that I'm trying to hook my laptop up to so that I can watch Netflix on it. I used to do this all the time in the past (exact same laptop and exact same HD TV). I purchased an HDMI cable yesterday and then I went on to spend hours of frustrated finagling without any results. The problem is, I hook up my laptop to the TV, then I go into the nVIDIA control panel (I have a 8600M GT, updated the drivers last night) and I select my TV from the "multiple monitors" menu, and then I "Apply", but no matter what my TV will still display "No Signal", despite clearly being set to the correct HDMI input. I noticed that when I go to change to my TV through the multiple monitors menu, the little image of the HD TV is greyed out, but I can still check the box to make it a monitor. The thing is, when I use an RGB cable it works just fine, and I can get my laptop screen to show up on the TV (I'm using the HDMI cable because I want sound). Does anyone have any idea of how I can get this to work? I'm hoping I didn't buy this super over-priced HDMI cable for nothing.
