Help… My Panasonic TX-32LX75M TV HDMI cannot work with PC. The story goes like this… I bought a HDMI cable from Carrefour last month. It was a value HDMI cable. I tried to connect my girl friend notebook BenQ Joybook S42 to the TV with this new cable. However, I failed to get a clear picture on my Panasonic TV. It does not have problem to display at 1366×768 resolution while using PC Mini D-sub 15-pin cable. I have a clear picture. However, it failed when using HDMI cable. By the way, the BenQ Joybook S42 laptop is using Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT display card. I tried different resolutions but still failed. And I don’t believe that Nvidia GeForce 9600M GT is causing the issue. Therefore, I brought my new desktop to the living room to test. I used Sapphire ATI Radeon HD 4870 to test. But the result is same ~ blur text and not sharp at all.
Did have a faulty HDMI cable? Well, I asked my friend to test it for me. And it is working on his TV. So it is not Carrefour value HDMI cable issue…

酷我音乐盒 KuWo ~ A music player that you don’t want to miss. My friend, CC introduced this wonderful music player to me. It is not just a music player that plays MP3 or WMA. You can download more than 1,000,000 songs, MV, lyrics from its song database free. The scrolling lyric is the best part that I like. You can also enable desktop style lyrics. I am listening to MP3 and watching the lyrics to sing while typing this post. It is great to have this wonderful music player. By the way, the music box is in Chinese. But you can play / download songs in any languages.

Do you know to generate error information to Windows Event Log? Most of the Windows application will output error information to Windows Event Logs if there are issues in that application. How do we do that in C#?
We need to use System.Diagnostics namespace.
Codes to generate information to output to Windows Event Logs
EventLog myLog = new EventLog();
myLog.Source = “YourApplication”;
