Overlay display in Clone Mode

    I am tearing out what few hairs I have left every time I sit down to watch a
    movie on my TV. My ATI Radion 9800 Pro is a great card but the Catalyst
    software 5.4 is so stressing.

    Okay, so I know that I require to switch of my TFT display on the 9800
    secondary output before switching on my s-video connection to my PAL TV.

    I then use the wizard and but still have to manually de-select the TFT and
    then select the TV. Next I select "no I do not want to extend my desktop"
    (or similar words) then, IF I REMEMBER, figure out how to get to the video
    overlay page so that I can select "theater mode". This is such a pain doing
    this every time I want to watch a movie.

    Frequently I forget this critical last step and on a Friday or Saturday
    night with a few beers in me just cannot figure out how to get the movie to
    be seen on the TV. I get really angry and then usually give up.

    No doubt someone will tell me to RTFM why does the Catalyst not make the
    Theater setting sticky?
