    Hi, I have a new HP laptop, dv7-6175, about 2 months old and a new Rocketfish HDMI cable, about 1 month old. The cable just stopped working, won't stream Netflix to my Samsung HD tv. I hooked up the cable to my older laptop and it works- streams Netflix to my tv. It had been working previously on my new laptop, but then the picture on the laptop began to flicker off and come back on periodically when we were watching Netflix. Yesterday the computer shut down, and when it was re-booted no more streaming at all! I don't know if the cable is bad or if it's the port on the computer. I am able to do everything else on the computer, internet, etc. Thanks! Any help would be appreciated.

    its unlikely to be the cable

    have you downloaded the latest video driver from the HP support site
    if you goto desktop area and right click - personalise - display
    you may have some control there for HDMI under advance setting - depends on the video adapter you have on the PC

    Display adapter click on the + > post back the devices listed there
