weird issue with media center on dual view


Active Member
i have setup MC as a dual view from the pc it all works fine except for one issue. the mouse is locked in media center and i cant move it accross to the pc monitor.

if i use media player classic then there is no issues i can start a movie and move it accross only MC seems to lock the mouse into the application so I cant use the PC while watching a dvd

I have the TV set to Right on dual View and the monitor left:confused:

I never found a satisfactory way around this either.

The best I could come up with, is to use MCE in windowed mode and expand it to the size of the TV. You can make it look fullscreen, but it obviously isn't.

It's not ideal, as MCE has to have focus to change channel etc, but it's ok.
