    I have a Windows 10 tower PC and want to use my monitor and my TV at the same time.
    I have got them both working but just cant get the resolution right on the TV, the TV is hooked up by HDMI cable and the monitor is hooked up by DVI cable.

    Any thoughts?

    What's the maximum resolution of the TV and what type of HDMI specification of cable are you using?

    Unless you've got a 4K TV don't expect to be able to get high resolution output from the TV, I have a 32in TV that only goes up to 720 (1280x720) so it's not the same as my 1080 (1920x1080) laptop resolution.

    Also worth seeing if the TV / Computer has DisplayPort as well and try using that instead.
