Hey guys,

I've recently tried using my HDMI port on my Acer Timelinex 3820T. Audio works perfectly; video is another story altogether, however. I am able to see my mouse on my TV screen, and my top panel of my desktop is partially visible (it's cut out at the top). The icons on this panel respond to mouse kicks.

Below the panel is just a black screen.

Any help would be appreciated.

UPDATE:

I'm using a program called Disper which did successfully produce video. However, it was insanely buggy. I couldn't get the desktop to fit the TV and my own desktop on the laptop was screwed up while I maintained the HDMI connection.

Nevermind, got it working. To those who had the same trouble I did, install disper and use this tutorial:
