    Hi all,
    I wodered if anyone had encountered this problem,
    I went in to PC world today and saw some PJ`s running, when he put Win DVD on,or even media player the video was on the pc but not projected onto the screen, the rest of the picture ie/ pc stuff was fine just a blank where the video should have been.
    Anyone know what would cause that plz, I`d hate to have bought it and found out when I got home

    Its because those applications only display overlay video like DVD on the primary display, he could have switch the projector to being primary if he knew what he was doing.

    And if he had a brain he could of ticked 'theatre mode' which when enabled makes any overlay video output on to the second display only, while letting you control windows desktop with your flat panel monitor 25 feet from your projector.
