Default Dual Monitor Question

I have my TV set up as a second monitor. I can watch full screen divx movies fine on my tv. when I play a dvd image on a virtual drive with PowerDVD it plays fine on my monitor, both audio and video.

But when I drag the window over to my tv the video does not show up. Can someone tell me what I can do get the video to show up on the tv?

What I am thinking is that it might be the player.

My machine is doing that at the moment too - same setup as you. It would appear to do it with any sort of player/file type. Used to display on both screens fine, but since a format and reload it won't work!

When I set my tv as the primary monitor it plays the video just fine. My computer monitor is setup as the secondary monitor and it will not play video on it when I have the tv as the primary monitor.

Try changing your tv to the primary monitor and tell me if you can see video.
