Windows 7: Multiple Monitor prob and audio prob as well

Multiple Monitor prob and audio prob as well

Hey All

First post here, I did a search and did not find any specific answer to my problem. Firstly I am running Win 7 Ultimate with an Nvidia 8600 GT video card running HDMI through the SPDIF output to the graphics card.

My problem is getting my pc to duplicate to my HDTV when I hit the windows+p shortcut and select the duplicate option everything goes OK and I get pics on both monitors. The problem is that my PC changes resolution and slightly distorts. By distorts I mean circles look like eggs but HDTV is fine.

My monitor is set to 1920x1280. I have the latest drivers installed and have re-installed them twice to be sure. I get them same error using the Nvidia Control panel, when running XP I had no problems at all doing this and running the correct resolution on both outputs.

The other problem is when using VLC I get audio out to the HDTV no problem but when I try and use Windows Media center or player I get no sound at all.

Any help would be great,

Thanks

Have you run media setup when using your TV? This should set the resolution and the sound up for you.

using my 9800gtx+ I need to pick which output I'm using either "speakers" or "Spdif" and my audio works regardless but as far as the resolutions concerned I have had to tweak settings in the NVidia panel and the windows res screen and set my TV to scan only so that my resolutions dont corrupt in duplicate mode
