Getting CurlTV Full Screen on a HDTV

More techno-babble from a techno-ignorant sports fan:

Ms. Eclectic and I have full subscriptions to both CurlTV and to the Major League Baseball Premium broadband telecasts. In part, so we could view them on a larger screen than my laptop's 13" screen, we bought a 32" Samsung HDTV a couple of months ago. We hooked it up to the "monitor-out" connection from the laptop and got..... no action. We could get the screen from the computer, but where there was supposed to be action, the screen was just black.

After many more hours than most of you would need, here is the solution we found.
  1. The problem lies with something in Windows Media Player. Open WMP.
  2. Click on Tools.
  3. Click on Options.
  4. Click on Performance.
  5. Near the bottom of that screen, adjust the accelerator slide. For our tv, we just had to slide it back to the medium position.
It works well for both CurlTV and MLB Premium.
