Premiere Elements 11 on Windows 7 64 bit.
Please consider the following to determine if either is what you had in mind with the question
1. If you have a LCD TV that can double as a computer monitor, then just make a VGA connection between the computer
and the LCD TV, and set the computer Display for 2 monitors, Extend Across Desktop...I believe you also have the choice
of Duplicate instead of Extend Across.
2. If your have a TV and computer each with an HDMI port, then make that connection when the TV is in the HDMI Mode.
Please review and consider and then let us know the outcome.
ATR: Thx for the informative reply! I will consider those options.
What I just discovered: Under Project Settings/Playback Settings, External Device was "NONE". Switched this to "DV" and the signal came thru my ADVC110 into the TV.
My current project was shot on a Panasonic PS-GV80 MiniDV camcorder (non-HD). Therefore, when I playback on an HD TV monitor, the quality isn't going to be that good.
Since my Canopus ADVC-110 has only RCA or S-Video outputs, I can only connect this to the HD TV via RCA. (I do have a second, older pre-HD TV connected as well).
COMPUTER Video: HDMI, DVI, VGA (on motherboard). (2) DVI connections on the Video Card (one is connected to my Computer Monitor).
TV Monitor: HDMI-1, HDMI-2, VGA, Component, RCA, USB
Computer Monitor: DVI, VGA, HDMI, USB
I was under the impression that if you have a separate video card on a computer, you couldn't use the "on-board" video connections AND the video card connections at the same time.
Thanks for the reply with more information on your intended workflow.
Have you seen the following Adobe document which includes a section on Preview on a TV Monitor?
Add On....Just in case note..in Premiere Elements 12 and 13, no more Playback Settings via Edit Menu/Project Setting/General. And, there is only grayed out Playback Settings title from right clicking Edit area monitor.
in PRE15, even the greyed out Playback Settings is gone.
Had it all working kind of ok in PRE11 and now I feel cheated.
