When I looked at the "Overview" on the Inspiron 1720 at Dell's site I noticed that there were no DVI/HDMI video output ports. Can someone please confirm this? Is the only monitor output a VGA port? If so I think this royally sucks! My e1705 comes with both VGA & DVI...
I have a studio xps 16 and whenever I plug it via HDMI to my tv (which has a 1080p resolution) there are black bars all around the image, meaning the image is smaller than the tv. I've set the resolution of the tv (from Catalyst Control Center) to 1920x1080 and it still won't do full screen...
I decided to try playing some 720p video on my Sanyo 42" LCD HDTV (native res 1366x768). I assumed it would be as easy as just connecting an HDMI cable and setting my m1530 to clone desktop.. I couldn't have been more wrong.
After doing some research it appears that LCD HDTVs aren't as flexible as regular LCD monitors with respect to HDMI input. No matter what I do, the screen always appears cropped around the edges on my TV.
What I've tried so far: 1) Setting a custom 1366x768 resolution in the nVidia control panel. 2) Tried setting my hdtv as primary monitor and setting the res. 3) Used Powerstrip (program) in an attempt to force a 1366x768 res (not sure if I'm doing this entirely correctly, I'm a little confused over what the correct advanced timings should be). 4) I hear this issue is called "overscan", so I looked through my TV menu for any overscan or zoom/image scaling options but couldn't find any.
I'm using the 179.28 Nvidia driver.
I'm running out of things to try, does anyone know how to make this thing work?
I have heard numerous comments stating that individuals are only getting Stereo Sound from their HDMI port but then other comments explaining that yes, indeed, it supports Dolby Digital....5.1 Audio etc.
The HDMI port is 1.2 which allows for a PCM 8 audio stream signal.
I have a receiver that allows for internal 7.1/5.1 Audio streams (all of the latest codecs can be decoded and processed) with HDMI output/input connections.
Will I be able to send a 5.1 PCM Audio stream to my AV Receiver and thereby utilizing the full range of audio?
Ive been using a 40 inch HDTV ever since I received my Z about a month ago. I had to move recently, and now when i attempt to use the display it looks very strange, almost as if someone turned the digital vibrance or contrast setting up all the way. The text looks strange, and it is overall unpleasant to look at. I checked all of the settings and everything is the same as before, and tried varying the resolution and color settings. I can't figure it out!
I can take a picture if that would help explain better. I also checked the TV's settings and I do not believe that is the issue.
I also tried reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers from sonys website to no avail.
I have a Sony Vaio FW laptop with a HDMI output, when i had vista i could plugin my hdmi output in to my TV hdmi input and immediatly see my computer display on my TV. As soon as i upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit, when i plugin the hdmi cable nothing happens, i am unable to get my tv and laptop to notice each other, Win 7 doesnt seem to notice at all.
I got Windows 7 ultimate installed on my laptop (did a clean install). I am trying to get output from my HDMI port to the TV but when I plug the cable in my laptop screen goes black and there is nothing showing on the tv.
I'm planning on buying a new laptop soon and have been going through some of the threads regarding the HDMI port and I am a bit confused.
I would like to be able to take a 1080p/5.1 BD or .mkv on my laptop and connect it to my AV receiver via HDMI which then outputs 1080p/5.1 to my HDTV/speakers. I have no idea what minimum video card/sound card/processor is required for this.
I'm having a problem with HDMI output from my dv7-3079wm to my 37" LG 1080p LCD. When I view the input on my TV, there is a black border around the image (like it is overscanned?). This happens at most resolutions, except for 1360x768, and I would like to watch Blurays in 1080p. So I'm not sure why it is doing this. I also tried this on a 42" Hitachi 720p TV with the same result (all resolutions) so I don't think that it is the TV. I couldn't find any settings in Catalyst Control Center also. My graphics card is an ATi Mobility Radeon 4650.
I can silence the noise lowering volume on the Stereo Mix High Definition Audio Codec. However, my AMD HDMI Output is greyed out and static, or as I understand from other complainers; NOT PLUGGED IN. What can I do to solve this problem. It is a problem for when I open the Stereo Mix High Depfinition Audio Codec, a shrieking noise leaves me depth, and it eats the volume all up.

I've got an Acer v5-571P-6866 that won't output video to either the LCD, or out through HDMI. It powers on, doesn't seem to have any issue booting. My first thought was the motherboard, but I've tried a second and it still has the same issue.
My U330P is running Windows 7 with the latest drivers for both the Intel HD video module and the Realtek audio chip. I would like to connect my machine to a TV via HDMI and have it both act both as the display as well as the audio playback device (i.e. TV speakers should blare, not the ones in my Ideapad).
The thing is, I don't have said TV yet and if what I want to do is not possible, I will not bother buying it. I already did look around in Control Panel -> Sound -> Playback in order to find out whether there's an option to set the HDMI port as a playback device but found nothing. I also have the playback devices menu display disconnected and deactivated devices, but the only thing showing is the built-in stereo speakers. The listings in my device manager don't suggest something like a "digital sound whatnot" either.
So in general whether the audio signal can be rerouted to the HDMI output connector on a U330P.
Aspire S3. The PC is perfectly fine, except the fact the the screen is broken. It already broke twice (just by opening...), so we are not spending money on a third one.So, what I want to do is to connect it to an external monitor through HDMI (and possibly remove the broken screen, since it has no use). I can do it in Windows, but not outside Windows (BIOS) and I'd like install Windows 8.1 or 10. So my question is: can I force output from boot into HDMI? If so how, if not, what alternatives do I have to install a new version of Windows without spending a small fortune?
My new Yoga 2 Pro has a secondary display connected through the micro HDMI port. This worked like a charm initially. But after upgrading to newest Windows 8.1 (this is done automatically) it no longer outputs anything to the micro HDMI port. Display and cable is fully functional. But even though the display is powered on, the computer fails to register it and apparently it cannot output anything. Seems like the micro HDMI port is non-existing.
After the windows upgrade I have tried to uninstall / reinstall the display driver. I have also upgraded the Intel drivers to Win 8.1 versions found on the Lenovo support site (including BIOS 76CN38, Intel HD 4400 display driver 18.104.22.168.3496 and chipset 22.214.171.1246). But nothing seems to work.
I got a HP laptop, running windows 7 x64 bit Ultimate, and has 8 GB of ram. My tv is crappy now, and want to play my ps3, so, i was wondering if i can plug into my Laptop and get a certain driver that makes the HDMI port act as a input so i can play through my laptop screen, my resolution can go a little over 720p .....
I am using an Envy TouchSmart 15 and I have just run an update of Windows 8.1 based on the system auto update (it ran 5 updates).
Prior to the update, I used a 27" monitor as the main screen and this was connected via the HDMI port. Right after the update, the system doesn't seem to recognise the HDMI port anymore and it goes back to using the Envy laptop screen as the main screen. I changed the HDMI cable but it made no difference. I subsequently connected another laptop to the 27" monitor via HDMI and it worked fine. So it appears both the monitor and the HDMI cable are fine.
Yoga S1 output audio through the mini HDMI port? I see it listed as a possible output in "sound", but it just says "not connected". Not sure if it is my TV, my laptop, or the HDMI to mini HDMI cable I'm using.
