    TV out and driver issues

    Hello. I have a Toshiba laptop running Windows XP media center edition. I was trying to watch an MPEG file on my TV (through the TV out of the Nvidia Geforce 5600 card) and it was not working. When connected, everything on the computers monitor is shown on the TV with no problems. The problem starts when i hit play on the controls of PowerDVD or WinDVD. I get audio only. The picture is still playing on my computer screen but my TV has no picture. I have gone through all the settings and all seems right. Any ideas what the problem might be?
    Also, i tried to update the drivers for the graphics card. The update seems to go fine but whenever i go back to the properties of the video card, it still lists a driver version from 2003 as the currently installed driver. Any ideas on this one too? Thanks.

    You need to set up TwinVeiw (or whatever they call it) correctly. There should be something under display properties to set the image for the second monitor to full screan. Clone Mode has to be on too. My last card is an ATI so I'm doing this off memory from almost 2 years ago.
