    Yes, do a screen capture in a Display App. If the TV is off, then computestick will return an image of improper resolution ... 1024X768 or something like that. Giving your display was 1920X1080, the screen capture will look like a presentation with chopped-off sides. We get this a lot with older Samsung digital signage TV models ... so do not buy Samsung. At the nightly reboots, our players restart properly, but Samsungs fail to detect HDMI input and shut off. Then players stop detecting displays and they basically have no idea what resolution to push and play safe with some default, smaller resolution. Get economy-level Planar digital signage displays instead, those work great.
