I apologize, but I don't understand the terminology in your answer. What is an extended desktop, and what is (and where do I find) the video control panel?

The question is if the TV is the only attached display, or if you have a monitor attached to the PC as well. With more than one display the 1st one is primary and the desktop is extended to the others.
