Hi-

I have an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro with a samsung 910T LCD connected to the
DVI port and a samsung 915v connected to the analog port. Running
WinXP sp2, with Catalyst 5.3 drivers / control panel installed.


The DVI monitor is my primary display (and is on the left).

All seems well, except for video files on the 2nd display. I'm talking
about video played in Real Player or with Window Media Player. The
video window is simply black on the 2nd display, but it works fine on
the primary display.

When I launch the ATI Control Panel, and have the video on the first
monitor, I can control the "video overlay" settings. However, if I
drage the video window to the analog display, select "2. RADEON 9800
PRO - Secondary" as the Graphics Adapter in the Control Panel, the
video overlay controls are not enabled. Above it mentions: "The
overlay controls are automatically activated during playback of any
video file type that supports overlay adjustments."

I do hear sound when the video is on #2, so I know it's playing, but it
seems that the contrast is at 0 for the window.

Any clues?

I've tried an uninstall of all ATI products, checked that there were no
more obvious entries in the registry, and installed fresh using
Catalyst 5.3. No change. Same problem.

Kindly,
Ken

Hmm. Interesting. I'm actually using UltraMon already. Was there a
specific setting you changed to get it to work?

THanks.

I solved this by using a program called Ultramon by a company called
www.realtimesoft.com

Ken,

Just a quick reply to say that I have exactly the same setup with the only
difference being my pri is a Hitachi CM752 CRT (needs to be primary for my
default gamma correction).

Video on either or to TV s-video on Secondary is working here so maybe I can
help you out.

Try using Nero Showtime

regards,

Beemer

I have the EXACT same problem with the EXACT same configuration. The
only difference is that I am using 2 EIZO 19" monitors...other than
that I am using an ATI Radeon 9800 w/ 1 monitor on the DVI, the other
on the VGA connector and I am using the Ultramon app.

When I move Windows media player or Realplayer from the primary to the
secondary, the video stops playing but I hear the sound fine.

Has anyone found a solution to the problem? It's VERY frustrating...
