Using Display 2 with Radeon 9200 SE 128 MB

  1. I'm trying to set up the second display using the TV-Out on my Radeon 9200 SE. I got everything hooked up, set the "Extend Windows to this Display", and I can move things over to the TV and "maximize" no problem, but when I do a "Full Screen" using Windows Media Player 10 or the program for my satellite card, the picture "jumps" from display 2 to display 1 (which is then in full screen) and the screen area in WMP goes black on display2.

    I've tried updating the drivers and software as per ATI's website, but there is no change.

    Is there something else I can do, or is "full screen" not possible with this card?

    I'm running ....

    Athlon XP 3000
    512 MB Ram
    120 G HD
    ATI Radeon 9200 SE 128MB
    SB Live!
    LG CD-RW
    LG DVD
    My monitor is Default Display 1
    TV on TV-Out Display 2

    The "make this default" options on both are "greyed out" so I can't change between the two (make TV default and Monitor #2)

    I have my radeon 7000 series set up the same. I think it depends on the software you are running. So far Ive found that power dvd, winamp, and media player 10 work fine on my system. I only set it up yesterday so I havent tried anything else.

    Hope that helps. Rik.
