    That is because you have your desktop extended rather than mirrored. If you drag a window off the right side of your desktop, it should appear on your tv. If you go to System Preferences->Displays, you can also check an option for display mirroring that will put the same thing on both displays.

    You need to put your TV on the VGA setting, not AV1. AV1 is for composite input.

    well it sounds like it is working fine then. Have you tried dragging anything from the laptop display to the TV?
