Watrching Netflix from Laptop through entertainment center to TV



I have a Gateway laptop that has an HDMI connector. Since my entertainment center (Sony) is already connected to the tv by HDMI can I connect my laptop to the ET with HDMI?. Will I have to make any changes to settings on the laptop. The ET detects input an typr automatically. Thanks


You may have to adjust the output display settings for the laptop (similar to how you would for a VGA LCD projector), but that would probably be it for the laptop.


Since I have never done for a projector, how do I adjust the output display settings? also I assume that audio will go through the HDMI as well? I have a Windows vista OS


On most laptops you adjust the output by using the Fn and F8 keys . . .
