    Hey All,

    Wondering if anyone has a solution for this (probably very simple)...

    I have my G4 Powerbook hooked up to my tv using S Video cable but I can't watch DVD or even see my desktop icons...I do however see my wallpaper and that is it, so I know it is getting a signal just not sure why not seeing icons or DVD player...anyone?

    Thanks,
    Fp

    If you can see the desktop, it means its using the tv as extended monitor. You will have to drag the iDvd window to this second monitor.
    Or you can change the display settings to mirror by pressing F7(its F7 on my pb),or by going to system prefs-displays.

    cheers
