    Power DVD question

    I use to use PowerDVD XP (came with my drive) but when I added my third monitor it stoppped working. I switched to WinDVD (also had it) and it worked for a while, but all of a sudden today it stopped. So I downloaded the PowerDVD 6 trial, and it works....except it doesn't stretch across any monitors like other people have said it does for them. It's just black on the other monitor.

    I have a Radeon 9800 which has 2 monitors on it, one VGA and one DVI. My third monitor is on a PCI Radeon 7000....I have the latest drivers, any ideas?

    wait, you have dual monitors and you want PowerDVD to stretch the movie to both monitors?

    I think that will be a function of your video card, not Power DVD- try adjusting your display properties to stretch it across your monitors.
