The only physical connections I have to the system are the monitor and the HDMI cable coming from the tv to the Mobo.

Im missing something here Bassfisher,

Could it be that the HD4770 disables integrated graphics and if so then it would explain why I get nothing from the HDMI going to the Mobo?

With using the card you want it set to GFXO. Also go back into the bios and make sure that "Surround View" is set to enabled and not auto, as auto doesn't always work. This setting allows you to use the onboard video at the same time as a video card (pretty much any AMD/ATI card will do), and works very well as I have used it in the past.

Another thing while in the bios is to make sure that the "AMD 785 HDMI Audio" is set to enabled if you plan on having audio over the HDMI connection.

Hi Stormy and Bassfisher,

I just enabled surround view in BIOS and when I restarted the system it found new hardware (the onboard graphics ) Please see attachment.

There was also a warning from AMD, please see attachment. I have a feeling we are almost there.

Dear helpers,

I now have the tv correctly identified by the system. I can even see my desktop on the tv, However it is only displaying the desktop background image, nothing clickable and no mouse cursor

That is normal until you put something on it. Unless you want a mirror image of the desktop (clone mode), leave it in extended mode. You can then put icons on it or move open programs (Windows Media player e.g.), while still using the monitor to work on.

If you plan on gaming on the TV, you will have to set the TV as the primary display or it will only run on the monitor.

One more thing, neither Windows nor the video card/drivers knows which way you have the displays oriented (TV on right, monitor on left, etc). The fix is easy as all you have to drag one of them to the other side of the other,
