    I just had to hit function plus one of the F buttons and it worked.

    Usually says CRT LCD or has a picture of a monitor

    You need to hit the Fn button next to the spacebar and the F-key that says "LCD" or has a picture of a monitor - it's usually F4, F8 or F10

    Re: laptop to tv hookup question

    How do I also keep the stream on the laptop? I either get the laptop or the TV, not both. It's okay, because I'd rather listen to John and Eric. Just wondering.
