I am wondering if your laptop has switchable graphics, and if you need to toggle a control there to get it to use the Intel GPU.

Again, the same result: we select the proper video input on the Sony TV and as soon as we turn on IntelWiDi, the screen turns black but the test audio of IntelWiDi works fine. When we close IntelWiDi, the Netgear screen comes back up on the Sony TV.

Yes, that is exactly what I mean. With some graphics engines (e.g. Nvidia Optimus) this is handled automatically. But there are other graphics engines that require the user to manually switch to Intel mode.

If it has an a secondary graphics card and the laptop is defaulting to that one instead of the Intel graphics card, the Widi display will not work.

Alternatively you could have dragged the video window to the second widi display (generally positioned to the right of the real monitor).
