    Hi guys,

    Can anyone help with this query?

    Is there a processor limit to which when we play a media file from a laptop and then use a VGA to hook up to a plasma, some laptops can’t play the file on both screens. Is this due the processing speeds not being up to it?

    Do you know what the processor limits are? We have a Vaio’s with an Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 / 1.66 GHz ( Dual-Core ) processor.
    This works fine in displaying the media on both screens.

    Thanks

    Hi I think it may be more to do with the graphics card you have with your Laptop.Have a look in the settings for your graphics card and it should give you the option to change the type of screen. It may also depend on the input connections on your TV, i recently had a lot of issues setting up my PC as a media station to stream media to the TV and finding the correct setting was a matter of trial and error.
    Remember you may need to add in the audio source to your TV separately.
