Hi, I hope someone here can help.
I want to watch films on my CRT television in my apartment, so I bought a VGA>Component cable so that I connect my laptop to it via VGA.
I purchased my laptop in the UK, and have since moved to South Korea. It is a Sony Vaio with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
So far the closest I have managed to get is heavily distorted (positionally and colour wise) screen.. I have attached a picture of this. I get this only if I extend the desktop area.
However, when I move the mouse over to the CRT screen and right click, as soon as I touch a flyout menu (such as 'view' or 'sort by') the screen goes black and then refreshes.
I have a feeling this is a PAL / NTSC issue (in that the UK is PAL, and Korea is NTSC), yet there is nowhere in my ATI CCC software to change the region modes.
I have changed Windows 7 system locale to Korea, but it didn't make a difference.
Also CCC cannot detect the settings such as maximum resolution etc.. for the television, and Windows detects it in Device Manager as a 'Generic Non-Pnp Monitor'
Any ideas on how to get it working? Please help
