It's probably a Windows issue. If the TV has a different resolution to your laptop screen it will be difficult to get them to match. Ihave a FHD 1920x1080 laptop screen, I have attached for video editing a 1366x768 flatcreen 17" TV. Windows only offers scaling across the dualview so that if I drag an open folder to the TV it is much bigger. I can set the TV to a non-native 1920x1080 but it then is soft and unusable for me.


Check your individual resolution settings in Windows and experiment with settings. If your laptop has HD 1366x768 and your TV 1920x1080 you will have difficulty in matching them.
