Specs: Windows 7
My dell desktop has all the gadgets, Windows 7 64bit. I connected it via s-video to my Panasonic TV (on the video 2 connection). Problem is, I only see my wallpaper, not the movie that I just downloaded via Netflix). so my Panasonic only shows pretty pics of space (my wallpaper)) Urgh!!!!!

Sounds to me like your desktop is being "extended" onto your Panasonic TV. Press the Windows Logo key and P at the same time. Then select "Duplicate".

Hi misslulu

My name is Ananya and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. I regret to hear the issue . Is it only the video that doesn`t comes up on TV or nothing at all (except for the wallpaper). As RMT2 has mentioned once you login try and use windows logo key + P key and select duplicate.

Note - Press and hold windows logo key and then press P key and to toggle between options and select Duplicate.

Glad to assist you!

Thanks and regards
