I use a HDMI to composite adaptor, this enables the TV to be set up as a second display (if the graphics card supports it) this will allow the aspect ratio to be made to look correct as well. They are available from Ali, Ebay, Bangood etc, between £10 - £20.

There are also HDMI to RF converters from the same suppliers which can be tuned from Ch21 to 68, they are a bit more expensive at about £30 -£40, I have one that works OK but I don't like the PSU which is not earthed and looks a bit cheap, it can easily be replaced by a good quality 12V supply.

Hi , I'm using a hd to composite adaptor connect ed to my RF modulator.  I'm hopeless with computers so I'm wondering if there is a setting on my laptop so that the picture fills the screen .

From the look of the output the aspect ratio is incorrect for the 4:3 of your G8. I assume your laptop is wide screen. I would start by adjusting your display output scaling. See what its set to at present, I imagine its native to your laptops display. There should be a setting to resize the desktop if the display setting did not provide a proper fit. It's difficult to advise without knowing what you have it currently set to. Take some photos and upload them of your desktop display settings when they are displayed on the G8 screen.

Hi Chris, thanks for the advice. I've set the resolution to 1280 ×1024 and it now fills the screen. I'm getting ready for our test card circle convention live stream tomorrow as we would have been down in leominster this weekend .
