    TV LCD as monitor


    Iīm using a LCD TV as a second screen with Win8.

    The problem is that I canīt save this choice and I must do the same thing every time I log on.

    Any help?

    Thanks a lot

    Just use Win+P to use your LCD TV as your second screen.

    One more thing: How can I save the resolution 1280 X 800?

    Each time I log off and log on again the resolution goes down to the lowest level (1024 X 768)...

    Update your Graphics Drivers.

    If that doesn't work, then this Registry Hack should solve this:

    1) Go to Start --> Run --> regedit and press enter

    2) Click 'Edit' and click 'Find' in the Edit menu

    3) Type ' DefaultSettings.XResolution ' (without quotes) and click 'Find'

    4) Change 'DefaultSettings.XResolution' to 500 (500=1280 in hexadecimal).

    4) Change 'DefaultSettings.YResolution' to 320 (320=800 in hexadecimal).

    5) Reboot.

    Almost perfect...

    But I still need always to do the following after log on:

    1 - RightClick on the Desktop

    2 - Choose "Screen Resolution"

    3 - Leftclick the "Detect" button

    After that my TV LCD monitor is OK.

    Can I automate that?

So, I'm finding myself pretty disappointed in the way that MS has dealt with multi-monitor support. They're moving in the right direction I guess, but still not what I'm ideally looking for, meaning it's time to start looking for 3rd party alternatives (as I did with Win7). So, my ideal setup...
