    I have got two monitors both 19" TFTs. im using the SPAN option so i can have a dual desktop wallpaper, and i enjoy using the PC in this way, However I can not get video working to span accross both displays.
    Its a Geforce 6800 using the latest drivers.

    Is this not possible or is there an modified driver somewhere. Im assusming its becasue the 6800gt only supports video overlays on one display at a time. :confused:

    Any information i would be very gratful.

    make sure nview is enabled, and that keystone is on (in nview options)

    then right click desktop goto NVKeystone then enable

    (notice the lag)

    then play your video

    then right click and disable it

    and it should show on both screens

    :( the lag lasts for ever, using 81.98 drivers.

    but tbh tried playing Q4 lastnight spanned accros two screens. the small gap was where the cross hare was :D couldnt hit for anything. However wide screen was nice.

    any other hints?

    you only need it enabled until the vid is loaded, after that you can right click and disable it, that should stop the lag.

    other then that and having Ultramon installed...no other tips i can think of
