So I am trying to project a video from a laptop to my television. I got an S video cable that goes from laptop to TV, all seemed to be okay. Everything I do on the laptop is being displayed on the television until...
I try to use windows media to play a movie. THe movie is playing and being displayed on the laptop. However on TV, the onlu thing I see is the normal windows media interface. Where a movie would typically be displayed, it is simply black.
I tried it with another movie playing application besides windows media, same thing. Just black screen where movie would be. But I can go online, click the start menu, do whatever, and it displays right on the TV okay.
Can anybody tell me why this is?
