Question TV will not display movie files

Last year, I set up a freind of mine with a computer so that he can play Dvix movies on. However he's turned it into a gaming box.

last week, I sell him a 6600GT 128Mb video card. And during the week, he picks up a 19" Monitor.
He's currently has both Monitor and TV cloning each other. However when ever he uses Media Player Classic on the TV, he gets a no image, however he gets sound. Please note that he can still play games and view windows via the TV. It's just happens to be media player classic that just does not want to show picture on his TV.

If he used media Player Classic on his 19" TFT Monitor, he gets both picture and sound.

Computer spects are :- AMD Athlon 2600, 512Mb Ram, Gigabyte GA-7N400 Motherboard, Geforce 6600GT 128 Mb AGP Video Card.
Monitor is connected via VGA
TV connected via SVideo
Monitor and TV are cloning each other.


Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)

You mean, it shows WMP, but instead of the video it is black?

Try WMP properties, "Performance" --> "Advanced" and enable or disable "Use overlays".
