Radeon Mobility 9200 Dual Display Prob

  1. My lappie has a 9200 Radeon mobility. The problem is Video cannot be shown on the secondary display.

    In order to play video on an external display (via sVideo or vga) you have to set that display as the primary display. And lcd as 2ndary.

    Compaq (yes, part of the problem) has said this is because there is only one Graphcs processor. ? Seems like BS to me, though I know squat about video cards. Is something dedicated solely to codec decoding?

    Since the solution (switching Primary/Secondary display) is a software one, their answer seems wrong to me.

    Any suggestions, articles to read, etc. would be appreciated.

    I also have a laptop with a Radeon IGP, and it says in the manual and online references that it works that way... only video can be seen on the primary. I tested this as well, and I guess that's just the way it works...
