Help: amsung LE40M86BD & laptop



Hey I need some help:

Just baught A samsung t.v with free view and want to play my d.v'd on the t.v using my Laptop

the laptop is A HP Pavillion dv9000
which plays dvd's

Im using a analogue monitor lead
(data-mp3-digital & analogue display)
connected in to my lap top then into the t.v
But the only picture im receiving from the laptop is the desktop back ground when the d.v.d is playing on the laptop

Read and read the manual and I seem too be doing all the correct things, But obviously not

Wouldnt mind some help thanks Liam. ?:lease:

I do this with the wifes Toshiba (Same TV). I put the signal through DVI which I prefer.

I use DIVX Codec's and the Real Audio player to view it.

Works a treat :)

In Theory, should be same for using the monitor port?
