Tv programs need to be changed.

i am connected the same way to a 23" Samsung and there is a button on the top right of the Remote that I have to press if I just want to watch TV or press it another twice to go back to the computer.

It says Source so if yours has that give it a try.

Yes sorry aby471 I should have said mine is a Monitor/TV and it worked ok without entering any CD's.

Maybe go into Device Manager.Monitors.And try updating the driver which I suppose is not very easy if you have no picture.

That is the only experience I have had with changing monitors so best waiting for someone else that can help.
