Yo,

I have Hardy running on an Eee PC 1000. I want to use my 32" LCD TV as an external display. This laptop has no HDMI output, but it does have VGA. I purchased a VGA to Component (RBG) adapter, but I don't get any output on the TV - even when I select "clone output" on System > Preferences > Screen Resolution.

Once, after a CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE, I saw the mouse cursor for a few seconds, but that was the closest it would come.

Anyone have any ideas? I'd love to get this thing working with Boxee as a media center for web video (I already ordered my wireless keyboard!).

thanks
