So here is all of my components that are hidden within my TV stand: Reciever: Onkyo TXSR806 50" Plasma, Xbox 360 and Wii Digital Cable Box Network-attached external drive: D-Link DNS-323 Modem and wireless router. Dell Studio 17 laptop with HDMI I just bought the laptop a few weeks ago because I was hoping to make everything more compatible. That is also why I bought the DNS-323 but I have no idea how to connect that to anything other than the network so I see it on my laptop. All video signals run through my receiver with one HDMI out running to the TV. But back to the laptop, when I first had the computer, I plugged it into the TV and had video but no sound. I accidentally pulled the HDMI without unplugging anything and none of the equipment liked it to much when that happened. Now when I plug the laptop into the TV I have no video, although after further studying I have gotten the sound to work. Now the main question is, is what could I do I need to do to get the video to work. I don't think it messed anything up when I pulled the HDMI cable because the sound still works. I know the HDMI ports on the receiver still work because I tested other equipment on them. I know the problem wasn't the actual HDMI cable because I tried several of them. I would like to assume that the HDMI port was not messed up on the computer, but I don't know. Is there drivers on my computer for the HDMI port that I can reinstall? Is there some kind of video setting I need to change on the computer? Is there a way to see the computer screen on the TV by way of the Xbox or NAS drive instead? My ultimate goal is to get any equipment that can communicate together to communicate together. It would be great if I figured out a way to do it all wirelessly, but if the HDMI is the best method then thats fine too. Supposedly Vuze will convert a format to something that can be seen on the Xbox, though I have tried that with multiple files and file types and it has never made it past 0% progress on any of them. Help me out guys, please?
