Windows 7: HDMI To Flat Screen TV

HDMI To Flat Screen TV

Hey guys, I can't seem to get video to look right on my Flatscreen TV from my laptops?

When I try to watch youtube video it looks like a small box, does not fill the whole screen, why does this happen?

I would also like to create a presentation to view on a monitor of some kind (it will probably be one on site, or I will have to provide, don't know yet) but I will need to figure this out in advance.

In addition, would like to be able to show people what I'm doing on my laptop, again, via my Flatscreen tv. Seems like this would be easy enough but can't get it myself.

Thanks, Nasty7

I've only once used a TV for computer display, it was a Toshiba 40RV525R. It was necessary to change one setting - aspect ratio I believe - to "native".

Hi,
I would usually use Winkey+p and Duplicate
If you right click your desktop background and click on Graphic's options you'll see all of these options to review the settings

@ThrashZone, I will take a look at this also. I'm not sure what it's all about, looks complicated lol. Maybe this will help when I am using other equipment.
