N510 as a Desktop PC

I plugged my Samsung 22 inch screen via VGA into the N510. I wanted to test, if the Ion + Atom combination would be enough as a normal desktop PC. The screen resolution went automatically to 1680×1050 and looked good. Then I started Google Chrome, opened 6 different weppages,started Open Office and paint.net. And on top I played a 720p mkv file with mpc-hc. Than I tried surfing, email, watching photos and switching to the running movie. No problems at all. Even Youtube non hd vids ran fine. The Samsung speed settings were on slow.

So I am pretty happy with this and now I am checking for a cheap Acer Revo as a 24/4 running system, so that my heavy gaming desktop PC doesn´t have to run all time for torrents and surfing ;o)

Samsung N510 and HDMI

This mornig I plugged the N510 to my LG 3200 HD Ready TV via HDMI. No problems, the N510 recognized the TV immidiatly and all 4 options, netbook display only, lcd only, both and dualview worked fine. Under the Nvidia interface there is a setup for lcd tvs, so that you can fit the resolution and the desktopsize perfectly to your TV. Browsing and HD-Videos was good.

But, it sesms, that there´s no audio transmitted over the HDMI. I had no sound at all. I checked Bios, Windows and Nvidia settings, couldn´t find anything to activate it.
So I had to plug in my Logitech Z2300 2.1 system to the headphone output of the N510. That worked well.

YouTube is still uploading the file, the picture quality isn´t very good, the autofocus of the Ixus 100 is couldn´t get the TV picture right.
