HI, I have new PC with Intel video card, W 7 HP. It's new ZT box from Costco with single video out connector. I watch TV on it and trying to set it so I can watch TV and have another desktop ready for my other computer stuff. Can it be done.
I have option for single, extended destiop in my video settings. I did someting so I can get clean destkop on TV, but could not start my TV app on it.
Do you see both monitors in Display Properties? You want "Extended" on andd both monitors enabled. You shold be able to just drag the application over to the TV from the main monitor.
S-Video will give you a very poor image, it's not designed to carry a high resolution signal, text will be very hard to read. S-video was made to carry a signal about 400 - 480 lines (S-VHS and DVD), even a low end PC on a 15" monitor will output 600 vertical lines at least.
Yes, I'm moving into hdmi cable now, will check all again tonight, not sure how to drag app into wanted monitor, is this done inside Display properties?
Display Properties is just to enable the second monitor and configure resolutions, placement, etc.. To move the application over, just grab the top bar of the window and drag it across to the other screen. You will need to un-maximize the window, you can't drag across a maximized window.
