I'm trying to connect my Dell Inspiron Laptop to my PV500 via the VGA connection and don't seem to be able to get beyond an impressive picture of my wallpaper but no icons, start button or status bar. My Laptop runs ATI Mobility Radeon x300 Graphics and supports the 'extended' monitor scenario. So I'm in Display/ Settings and ticking the box that says 'extend the display to this monitor'. I've set the resolution to 1024 x 768 with a refresh rate of 60Hz as it says it is supported in the TV manual. When I tune to PC on the PV500 a nice picture of the wallpaper is shown with the readings H.FREQ 48.3KhZ and V. FREQ of 60HZ at the top. SETUP allows me to switch between XGA and WGXA input. But I've got no icons and none of the laptop screen activity appears on the PV500 Thanks, Mark.
