I have a Mac...
I have a Mac Book that I want to play a business webinar on my flat screen (web site address that ends in .wmv). It does play when connected to my big TV thru HDMI cabling .....but have 3 issues to correct if I can- to be perfect.......1-the sound only comes from the laptop..not the big nice sound of the TV 2- it shows exactly what my laptop screen is.....with the desktop icons at the bottom and the gray window border at the top(takes the very top of picture off of the webinar (is there a way to get just the content of webinar to play with out the laptop screen with out those showing and lastly........the laptop pic goes to black after every few minutes on both the laptop and the TV...the picture comes back up if you keep pushing the Apple remote but that is awkward when showing to people. Thanks much ......LARRY

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
