    I got an svga lead to go from my Toshiba Satellite to the Sammy. I worked it all out so the laptop displays on the Sammy and is a great display. The problem is that when I play a video clip that I have downloaded or a dvd in the dvd drive, I get no picture on the sammy. This happens when I use Windows Media or Intervideo dvd. I get the programme screen but nothing on it. The laptop is fine. HELP HELP HELP PLEASE. :mad:

    It's probably because the Sammy is acting as the secondary monitor and when you play dvds the picture only appears on the primary monitor (which I suspect will be your laptop screen). Can you make the Sammy the primary display? I'm not sure how laptops work in this respect I have to admit but I suspect that's what the problem is...

    Cheers Andy, it does say something like that in the TV instructions. Will give it a go. I think I know how to do it. Maree
