fix this.

bear016,
Can you give us a little more info so we don't have to guess?
Example; I have a (desktop/laptop) that has a (brand) tv-tuner card,
that uses the (application) and driver (version) to watch tv. I am
using (version) of Direct X. Start, Run, Type "dxdiag" without quotes.
Should be version 9.0c
You might want to run the tests while your there.
Best,
Treeman

This problem is driving me crazy. I used to be able to watch videos without
any trouble, but since "updating" my windows, I can't manage. I can hook up
to the TV and see my desktop there, but video won't play on the secondary
monitor. I can't seem to make the TV the primary monitor (maybe because I am
using a laptop?). Is there any solution to this or has the service pack
taken away this useful feature of my computer?

Check it hasn't replaced the graphics drivers with windows ones, you need to
use ones from the laptop manufacturer only.
