Hello,

I am having a strange issue that I cannot seem to fix.

I have my laptop (Alienware 17) connected to my Sony Bravia TV via HDMI.
I noticed lag occurring on the TV in video files but at very specific times over multiple files. If there is a scene where there is not much movement, the video lags horribly. Or rather it looks like frames are missing. On the laptop this does not occur.
The ONLY way I've been able to eliminate this issue is if I use screen duplicate and the problem disappears. I have tried 2nd screen only and all the other combinations. I also formatted my laptop and the issue persists. Also replaced the HDMI cable with no luck. Changing the scene on the TV does nothing.

I am running Windows 10, and I have both screens running at 1920 x 1080 60hz.
Any help appreciated.
