Re: Connect HP Pavilion dv6000 Laptop to TV.
Posted: 01-25-2009, 01:54 AM
Bob, just got it figured out. I have to use the VIZIO remote and use INPUT
there and it goes to the computer. It all works. I have to work with the
resolution of the TV but the MAIN part is finally done. Thanks to all the
good suggestions by you and others.
Thanks to you all.

Re: Connect HP Pavilion dv6000 Laptop to TV.
Posted: 01-25-2009, 09:07 AM
Yes. I am in the UK.

I'm so glad it is working, eventually.

Your next task is to configure everything.

If you haven't done so already, I would check that you are using
the latest driver from the HP website. You can use the useful
link to
http://h20239.www2.hp.com/techcenter...p_syscheck.htm -
which reviews all of your hardware and tells you, if there are
later drivers.

Then, connect your laptop to the TV.

As far as "Schemes" are concerned, open the Intel Video panel and
select your TV as the only viewing source. (In other words, you
should kill the output to your laptop screen).

Then, optimise the display settings to match your TV. Your TV
will probably require the 60 Hz refresh rate with 32-bit colour
quality. Also, read the TV manual to find the best screen
resolution.

Once you are happy with your settings, click on "Scheme options"
and create a new scheme. Allocate a suitable name for the scheme
(VIZIO). You won't need to check any other boxes. Just click on
Save.

Next, use the Intel video panel to select twin monitors (to view
computer output simultaneously on its own screen and also on the
TV. Optimise and save the settings as an additional "Scheme"
(named BOTH).

Finally, disconnect the TV. Optimise and save the settings as a
third "Scheme" (LAPTOP).

Having created these "Schemes", you will be able to toggle
between them very quickly, by right-clicking the icon on your
taskbar.

I hope that helps.

I agree re: latest drivers.
I have an Advent laptop and had great difficulty getting it to work
correctly when connected to 37" LCD TV using the supplied drivers,
I identified the m/b as an ECS 331, downloaded the latest ATI drivers and it
all went smoothly after that.

Hi, Bob in the UK

I spoke maybe too fast. Video from laptop to TV is OK, but the sound from
the headphones output (and they work via headphones) does not work yet when
I have the laptop connected to the TV and the audio cable plugged in AUDIO
next to the video input for the VIZIO.
