View Full Version : [SOLVED] How to setup my ATI to watch TV

May 30th, 2011, 11:29 AM
How do I properly setup my ATI 5770 just to watch movies on my connected TV and surf on PC on Internet simultaneously? I don't have current problem in Win7.
But Ubuntu 10.04 is just to confusing for me, so I require step-by-step guide.

After I tried to do it myself I got confused, when I setup TV and PC as a multi-desktop on my PC there was no Internet connection meanwhile I had it on my TV's desktop Internet available. I need to use my TV somekind like a an extended desktop, but when I try to do an extended desktop my two panels on PC's desktop simply vanish.

anyway hope that I described my issue clear enough to get some help.

P.S. I didn't find thread that would resolve my issue so I created a new one.

...when I make an extended desktop my taskbar moves to another screen, that's the only problem so far.
