Sony Via VGN-FW31M Laptop & Humax LU23-TD2 1080i TV
Sony has a HDMI Output and VGA

Humax 23" LCD TV LU23-TD2
PC Monitor VGA input - 1280 x 768

When using Blue Ray playback on Laptop to TV via HDMI cable output

I'm getting the error message

which reading through forums is due to having both Laptop & HDMI output on together,

I tried using Fn+F7 to select just HDMI Output only, but when selecting HDMI Only
- the TV Only flashes a couple of times and then both the TV and laptop screen flash a few times.
then it returns to Laptop & TV But I cannot set to just the TV output

When on both Laptop screen and TV Screen - The TV screen correctly represents the Laptop screen.
Using Iplayer from the BBC - I have been able to download a HD Program from the BBC Website,
and played back on the TV, still unable to HDMI output to TV only

I have read in the forum that setting up the display for one screen will solve the BlueRay protection problem
and allow me to use the blueray player via the TV


I cant work out how to change the display to TV Only

I have a call in with Sony Support and also emailed Humax Support

any help welcome

I havent yet tried the VGA output to TV - as the PC input is 720p
but with the HDMI input I should get 1080i which I assume would be a much higher quality

Well it appears to be a probelm with the Humax which is around 2years old, not having the correct HDMI standard. Because "they" have decided to add this copyright protection, I cannot use an old HDMI input on the TV to watch a DVD I have purchased .......

I tested the laptop in the sony centre (excellent service) and it woirked fine on there TVs

so an a problem with Humax - or still have not answered my support enmail from Monday !!!!!
