Ok, I recently bought a new videocard, an MSI FX5200 because it had the S-Video output. My intention was to put the TV as the second monitor, and use it to play Halo while I could still see my desktop on the original monitor. Ive got it hooked up, and I have my desktop extended onto the TV and I get a picture, and I can move stuff over onto the TV, but I CANNOT figure out how to get Halo to open into the second monitor!! I can move everything else there, and Ive even tried making the TV the #1 monitor, but it would still open in the original one. Does anyone know what I have to do to get this to work? Thanks

There's 8 different FX5200 cards listed on the MSI website ( http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=pr...;maincat_no=130 ) And, FWIW, the downloads are painfully slow on Server 1! :thumbsup:

# FX5200-VTD128

It appears that you can do this through the nView Display Mode settings (page 4-11 of the user manual for the FX5200=T128 v9).
