Dualview and having an app in both displays simultaneously

    I had to do a clean install and lost the ability to get my FX5200 to be
    able to put WMP (along with several other media players) to appear in
    both displays (display 1 = my monitor, display 2 via s-vhs to my
    TV)simultaneously. So I know it can be done and I know I did it in
    dualview mode. I had it where my WMP would appear in full screen mode
    on my TV (display 2) while it would appear on my monitor in any resized
    mode I wanted (both at the same time). Can anyone tell me how to get
    this back? TIA

  2. Disable Overlays in WMP. Just go to Tools/Options/Performance/Advanced
    and turn it off from there. GF cards used to be able to mirror the
    screen exactly with an overlay but nVidia disabled it around Detonator
    4x.xx. It used to work with early det40s on my Ti 4200. But with newer
    drivers it stopped working and hasn't worked on any card I've had since.

    Disabling overlays will reduce your picture quality. I think you'll be
    able to get it to work in "High Quality" instead of overlay, though you
    won't be able to adjust the colours and stuff.
