This only happens when plugged into the TV?

There should be a Fn (Function) key on the keyboard, there may also be a Function lock (F-Lock) that's enabling those shortcuts. I'll do a little more research and post back.

There should be a blue picture on one of the F# keys that looks like a screen, push the FN+(The corrosponding blue screen picture) to select the appropriate output mode that will display on both the laptop and the tv.

As for the Fn lock, I couldn't find anything online relating to it, what model is your laptop?
