Windows 7: Can't get the HDTV connected?

Can't get the HDTV connected?

I have pretty much everything running right on Win7 now except I'm having a lousy time getting out 46" LCD HDTV to connect. I have no problems when booted into Vista(running dual boot) but in Win7 I've had no luck at all. Tried everything from Cloning to setting the Samsung LCD TV as the Primary but still no desktop on the TV(ran it though Screen Resolution or through Nvidia's Control Panel. We watch a lot of Hulu TV through our PC so this is kind of a big deal.... Any tips would be greatly appreciated...

Try typing this into the start menu
connect to an external display
or try
connect to a projector (or just hit windows key + p)

If this doesn't work out for you, I would change your video drivers, try and use the Windows drivers instead of the Nvidia Drivers... which connection is your TV set up through? first or second dvi? hdmi? vga?

Let's just say I'm in idiot
I forgot I moved the HDMI input on the LCD.. Works pefectly, actually better then in Vista..
Sidenote, the nVidia drivers I'm running are actually through Win7 update.
