    Dual Monitor DVD software

    I have a dual monitor video card. I have it set to clone the monitor to play one in the trunk the other in the dash, showing the same thing. but if I play a DVD movie, it is black on one screen and shows fine on the other. Anyone know of any software that will allow it to show on both monitors??

    yeah, its the nVidia 5200 I have the video set to clone. I've been using WMP 11 to play the video with. works great on one screen, but the other plays black only.

    If you don't need the second screen for anything else, or aren't fussed about the other screen displaying your regular carputer stuff, best bet is to just have a splitter coming off of the one Video Out, and running to both screens.
    I can't quite remember the specifics of how this issue comes about, but it's a Windows thing, rather than videocard/driver specific from memory.
