    I currently have my PC connected to a TFT monitor and my LCD TV through the DVI port. When i try playing video through windows media player it will only play on one of the screens and not both at the same time. One of the screens will be black at the time.

    Any ideas how i can get the image to play on both screens at the same time.

    Thanks

    Your problem is due to 'Overlay'. This is a streaming feature used to produce high speed video playback on computers. Not many cards support this when 'cloning' the display and usually the primary display recieves the image.

    Someone here may be able to add to this and exlpain how to get this on both displays.....
