This should really be in software - perhaps why you haven't seen a reply yet.

What program do you use for watching films? Is this the case with any program you try? Try the latest version of VLC. It had a bug in that exhibited this behaviour a few months back, but it's now been fixed.

Watch the TV in a window instead of full screen. This should allow you to open other windows on the monitor.

^Agreed use it in Windowed mode and strech it to take up the full screen.

OR

Change which one is the default monitor?
