I've install Windows 7 RTM and it works fine and all, but it won't let me clone my PC display and my TV display and keep their sperate resolutions (pc is something by 1650 and the HD TV should be 1920x1080) ... it usually defaults to the PC resolution. In Vista and XP, I was able to clone and keep seperate resolutions.


I don't really don't want to use extended display, but even there, I can't seem to move stuff over to the 2nd Half.


I need to watch TV on my TV thru my PC. TIA

You can't clone a dog to be a cat and you can't clone one video resoluition to be another.

Just drag and drop copies of the Icons you want from your primary display to your secondary display in extended desktop and then you can start their programs from either display.

I don't know how you did it in XP/Vista, but yeah, one resolution must rule them all.

What were you doing in XP? Mirror = Clone and both must have the same resolution. If you picked extended then each can have their own resolution but then the displays will not be cloned. The problem is we do not know/understand what you were doing before. Can you please try explaining it a little more clearly?

I had two monitors, actually a monitor and a TV


They both mirrored each other


and they both had their own resolution


I'm certain of this (in VIsta and XP) .........

If you were in clone mode then the secondary montor was sent the resoluiton of the primary monitor and not what you might have had the resoluiton of the secondary monitor set to. Clone mode ignores the resolution setting of the secondary monitor.

So you changed your TV and OS at the same time? What resolution were you running before?
