I've got a HP Laptop with Intel graphics, I connect that to a 42" tv 
without any problems to watch iplayer or movies etc.

As has been suggested elsewhere in the thread, I do have to switch off 
the laptop off before connecting the HDMI cable, then restart to get the 
laptop & tv to work at the correct resolutions.

If I don't do that, my display does get corrupted.
