Hi All,

I have a MB and Samsung LCD TV.

I am using the mini dvi to dvi and dvi to hdmi connector to play video from the MB to the TV. I am just using a regular stereo connector to L & R analog cable for sound to the TV.

For some reason when playing Videos in FrontRow on the LCD TV it doesn't show the video. For example, I can launch FrontRow from the MB directly and play a divx encoded video. When I plug the MB into the LCD TV I can launch the FrontRow application and navigate to the Movies section. However, when I click on the selected divx movie it doesn't play. I can still see a faint menu (Resume and Start from beginning) as if the FrontRow application has stalled or is trying to load the video. Also, I dont even see the video preview (video box left of video title).

This is weird. Is this a known bug? Is there a work around?

Many thanks.

Regards,
Alan
