Hello, thanks for picking up on this post. I recently purchased a new 32 HDTV, and hooked it up to my laptop so I could watch Instant play Netflix content on my HDTV from my laptop, this worked fine, except I couldn't get the video display settings to work with my TV (laptop video card stinks). So I hooked it up to my PC - which is a really nice PC, the video card is a nVidia 7600 GTX video card. I have my TV hooked into the back of the video card via an S-Video to Component Video Conversion connector. Meaning I have the S-Video attached to my PC, and the component video attached to the TV. The picture looks beautiful, I can play games and what not, however certain video content will not play; such as DivX, or Netflix online content. WMV files seem to work fine. Does anyone have any input on this? Thanks!

Solved my own problem. My HDTV had to be the primary display - this solved the problem!
