    strohj, I have a VIA SP 13000, does this means that I can have dual screen support i.e dvd running in monitor 2 (using RCA out) and gps running in monitor 1 (VGA out) ? Except that we can't use FP in monitor 1 to run dvd in monitor 2 ?

    Possible to tell me the way you set the settings in display properties? I tried playing around with the settings and ended having a desktop with no mouse pointer and icons. Damn it! I got to reinstall win xp again. Please help

    To get dual screen working the way you describe.. you need to 'extend your desktop' to the 2nd screen.... you will then have to modify your skin to stretch over both screens...

    the typical dual screen setup we are describing allows you to see a copy of whats playing on the 1st screen, on the 2nd ...

    strohj, let's see if i get it right. To get the dual screen the way I describe requires the extension of the desktop to the 2nd screen - can be done from display settings. When selecting dual monitor, does XP automaticaly knows that the 2nd screen is thr the TV out (RCA)?

    Stretching over both screens - how does FP nows where to display the dvd skin over the stretch skin on the 2nd screen?

    XP will use what it can as the 2nd screen.. in your case it will use the TV out...

    you will have to modify your skins to now not only be 800x600.. but they will have to be 1600x600 (twice as wide) the right hand part of your skin.. you will need to put what you want on the 2nd screen... keep in mind that in frodo's DVD player not all but buttons etc are available to control anything else .. BUT you can get a external app to run for GPS
