I'm connecting my HP nx9010 laptop to my Samsung tv via an S-video to RCA cable. The problem I'm having is that movies tend to show in media player on the laptop but on the tv, while the media player window is visible, the movie isn't shown. It works if I use "Media Player Classic" but then the volume is usually too low. I find that in Media Player 9, sometimes the movie will be shown on the laptop if I turn the video acceleration (within Media Player 9) down to the minimum level. Problem is that then alt-enter doesn't work.
