I have an old Dell laptop running XP Pro connected to my TV via the s-video cable. Its used to watch films (movies).
The extreme graphics driver allows me to clone the laptop screen to the TV. so far so good.
The propblem comes when I close the laptop screen. The TV goes blank - the extreme graphics application shows that output has reverted to the notebook only. I have set the XP Power Options to "do nothing" when the laptop lid is closed nd I have installed the latest Intel driver (2006).
I would love to be able to completely close the laptop and watch the film on the TV. But I have to leave the laptop open slightly to prevent the display reverting to "notebook only".
