  • I am using a USB to HDMI adaptor in order to use my big screen as a monitor. How do I get Windows Media Center to recognize the adaptor when I play DVDs?

  • Hello russs727,

    Can you use the USB to HDMI adapter to connect the big screen as monitor?

    For more information about connecting a second monitor or projector in Windows, please take a look at the following article.

    If you can normally use the big screen as monitor, you can use the Windows Media Center in it.

  • Outside Windows Media Center can you play DVDs (eg. with VLC Player) ?
