I have several problems now that i've decided to get some things going via HDMI.
Firstly, I have a Dell XPS M1330 laptop and a Samsung 40" LCD TV. I was hoping to play something from the laptop via HDMI cable. The laptop has HDMI out, but doesn't seem to be working. I have updated all drivers, etc. The strange part is, the laptop doesn't seem to see the connection and neither does the TV to an extent.
With the HDMI cable plugged in, the TV shows 'No Signal'
With the HDMI cable unplugged, the TV shows 'Check Signal Cable'
So I would assume that the power is being sent along the cable, but none of the actual audio/visual content?!? Ok, i'm lost on that one. Tried all three connections on the TV (HDMI) and tried every setting possible on the laptop (Vista Ultimate Edition).
The Second problem I have is with the same TV and a Philips DVP5980 dvd player. I can get the picture sent to the TV, but no audio. I have tried every setting possible, but it's just not happening.
I'm starting to think the TV is faulty. Any ideas? Questions?
