I see this is an old post but maybe I can still get some answers for my setup.
My Graphics card has a DVI out put which I have connected to the HDMI input on the LCD TV. The only picture I can get is the background picture of the computer (It is in HDensity and looks great but cannot get anything else. When I switch to HDMI on the TV the monitor goes out for a few seconds and then starts up again.
My card is an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro.
Thought it would be easy as well but sadly not so.
Any help? by the way this is in W7. I have dual boot system and in XP I do get a picture on the TV which is "Terrible" and the Monitor switches itself off, so that's no good.
No worries now...fixed it ok in 7. Not worried about xp

Now, i have a TV with HDMI input. I also have HDMI output on my GC. Now, easy i thought, plug cable in, turn TV to HDMI and bang all would be good. But it aint. Now can somebody please help me to set this up, i never tried in Vista cos ive only just got this TV. And would dearly love to see if i could get this setup.
If i have this completly wrong then let me know.
Many Thanks
dont know if this will work for all but I just changed the screen resolution and that cured the problem of connecting my laptop to my lg tv, you might have to try different sizes but it did work for me
