i have to put the hz via my laptop settings to 30hz but i then loose my 1080p settings.


You do not have 1080p on your TV, it its HD settings are only for 720p and 1080i. set your TV to 720p and lower the Resolution on your PC.

Whats your screen resolution currently on your laptop, if its the Native Resolution, its bigger then your TV can view, you need to make your resolution smaller.

(1,024 x 768) TV 720*
(1366x768) PC

Also, check your TV settings, look for where it says the screen resolution, you can change it from 1080i to 720P (i)interlaced (p)progressive. You might also be able to change the refresh rate, it should be 60hz,

This will help with the flickering.

Also, make sure your laptops screen saver is activated, you dont want to accidently leave the screen on your TV being its a Plasma and burn the image in.

Im not familiar with Clone.

Going by the specs for your TV it doesnt say its capable of 1080p, thats why i mentioned all that.

Your laptop video card maybe having trouble powering the HDMI port, im not sure. Have you tried using your VGA connection?

no offence but vga picture is crap. the px70 is deffo 1080p

Where the PX70 truly moves ahead of the PX60 is in terms of 1080P High Definition signals. With Blu-ray and HD-DVD more popular than ever before, you'll be pleased to hear that the TH42PX70 has been optimised to make the most of 1080P, or Full HD, signals. With 1080P digital processing and re-mastering chip-sets, you'll always get optimum performance from your HD signals.

& as far as i know my laptop is made for hd blu-ray movie watching. clone is just a feature of nvidia control panel "only means what ever is on laptop display is same on tv" its doing my nut in now lol :thumbsup:

Your TV CNET review

its not capable of 1080p only 1080i.

Your Laptop CNET review

Display Size 16inch full 1080p

>Max Resolution is not 1080p capable. 1366x768 is your max resolution.

I checked the video card, it mentions that it can output to external monitor at full HD, but your optical drive didnt mention BluRay, have u played a BluRay disk in it yet?

I saw reviews of the card in another system, and this is what was said.

There are 3 basic ways to set up the dual screens: cloning, running only 1 monitor, and running both separately.
In cloning, both will be at 1280x800 and they'll show the same picture.
When running 1 monitor, the external will be active at 1680x1050, and the laptop's screen will be blank.
When running both separately, the Laptop's screen will be the main screen at 1280x800, and there will be an "extended desktop" on the second screen at 1680x1050


^replace 1280x800 with your native resolution.^

I think you might be expecting more from your system then its capable. Im hoping someone else can review this thread and verify or correct what ive said.

Like i said before, lower your laptop resolution and try again.

It would be appreciated when asking for help that your dont assume you already know all the answers.

I'm trying to help you with your problem, but you have to listen to what im saying.

Your TV is only telling you what signal it is currently recieving when you see 1080p on your screen. If you would goto your TV settings you would see otherwise.

thanks for that info m8. it defo says 1080p on screen when watching m8 & yeah i have played a blu-ray on my laptop played perfect. i was watching a full 1080p movie lastnight i downloaded, i used media player classic & it played perfect tv said it was 1080p no flickering or nothing & a top quality picture. was well amazed with it tbh


It seems you have solved your problem, and it seems to have been the Video player you were using, your other problem you listed below is most likely the same thing since its happening when u use other programs besides media player classic to watch movies.

most likely not copy right, even if its bootleg, if it started up to the menu, it should play the rest. I dont know why the other two programs wont play blu ray. my best guess is your video card cant play the resolution and keep stable. try lowering the output signal to 720p.
