    Connect the TV and select the connection you've used as source on your TV (HDMI, VGA)?

    I actually use a 32" TV for my desktop monitor. My TV has 3 HDMI ports and I plugged my video card into the HDMI2 port of my TV and that worked out fine. I could have also done it via DVI or VGA. My system would have supported sound in either HDMI or DVI with the HDMI adaptor cable but I rather just do it via straight HDMI.

    On my nVidia drivers settings for multi-monitor there is an option to force TV detection. Might be the AMD driver has this likewise.
