    Thats great! I'm sure they would have gone all the way with that, had they a full 5th season. Hahaha!

    That show should have had at least 4 more seasons.

    Yep, it was a fun ride while it lasted. We are still waiting for a worthy successor.

    Where is our OP? Crossed over?

    He is being dissected by Brandon-nate.

    I just thought of this: If he's getting "Out of Range" then the output might be higher than the TV is able to show - If it is a Plasma TV for instance, the highest resolution will be 720p. OR, his laptop is sending out that new overscanned signal. You have to make sure the output resolution is not higher than 1920 by 1080. So ya gotta check both of those things.

    His friends laptop worked, so it might be is laptop, if it is a certain kind of Sony Vaio, it actually has a higher resolution than 1920 by 1080.

    There is a piece of the puzzle missing here. His laptop works fine through HDMI on other TVs, but not on the subject TV. His friend's laptop works on the subject TV. Both laptops have the same refresh rate, both resolutions are one to 1.77 ratio. So unless the HDMI cable is different (I am assuming they are using the same HDMI cable for all tests) then I can't think of anything that would explain it.
    I hope your ideas pan out.

    Maybe he figured it out, honestly, this is a stumper. In fact, my Gateway laptop, the problem was not with the image, it was with the HDMI Sound driver now that I recall. But "Out of Range" means it is sending outside of the resolution or scan rate, maybe it is the scan rate, most LCD based HDTVs use 29hz, I have a Hitachi which is actually Acer, and it's 29hz. But that should be an Automatic Setting.
