I changed the TV input to HMDi2 and connected the HMDi2 port of TV to the HMDi port of laptop. In consideration of recent readings I wonder if I should have turned-on Foxfire on the laptop???

You need to go into the Display settings; I'm not sure precisely where to get to it in Linux Mint. I think that by default, most linux desktop environments do NOT auto-configure a display which is plugged in after you log on. It is generally automatically detected, but will not be automatically used by default.

Not in English. But covers what Isaac is mentioning.

Problem of displaying steaming video on TV SOLVED!

Thanks for your replies. However. I don't understand Spanish.

While searching for answers, I came across a tutorial that advised me to turn off my computer, turn on the TV, configure it for HMDi reception, plug-in an HMDi cable to both devices and turn on the computer. It WORKS!
