When I watch netflix on my laptop without plugging it into the TV, it runs normally.


When I use an HDMI cable to plug it into the TV, the connection is very laggy. Is there something I can do about this?

Hello, nrfowler... and :welcome:

Just a couple of quick questions to help us better troubleshoot the issue:

1) Have you tried switching the TV to "Game mode" in the AV Modes?

2) Are there any other "image enhancement", "picture smoothing", or "2d to 3d" features you could try disabling?

3) Have you tried (or are you able to) use VGA cables, instead?

Good luck!  :wave:
