I'm trying to connect this machine to a Panasonic Plasma TV TH-42PA60A
50/60Hz, 294w via HDMI1.
I have a HDMI cable direct to the television (thus from the TV to the laptop). When I plug the HDMI cable in (with the laptop off, then powering up, or plugging in when signed in, then rebooting) there is no signal detected by the laptop or the television, which is set to HDMI.
In system setttings > displays, no additional display has been recognized. None is recognized if I "detect display".
Yes, the cable and the television work. Yesterday we brought in another more modern monitor, connected two XBOX 360's via Cat5 had a 7-player epic night of HALO on two TV's and one of the two XBOX 360's was plugged into the Plasma Panasonic TV direct via the HDMI cable. No issues.
Is there a way to get the HDMI1 to recognize the Plasma TV on my machine? That is my question. Thanks for the help.
