I have a HP computer with hdmi output and want to show a dvd and video files played on the computer, showing on the hdmi tv. I have connected the computer to the tv with a hdmi cable but all I get on the tv is the picture of my computer desktop, no icons or moving picture. What do I need to do to make this work.

Sounds like you have extended the desktop top to the TV.

All you need to do is open the program (not in full screen mode) and drag it across to the TV. Usually you drag it off the right of the monitor and it should appear on the TV.

On my computer using Vista go to Control Panel/HD Audio Manager (Realtek) and select the HMDI as the default device

Using Win7 go to Control panel/sound and select the HDMI as default.

You should be able to do a test to see if it is working.

If you are using the TV as an extension of your monitor you need to move the program over to the TV before playing anything.

You could try making you TV the main display.

Try updating the Video card drives especially if you have recently upgraded the computer to Win7.
