Hopefully someone may be able to help.

Have connected my tv as a second display (cloned so that what ever is displayed on my monitor is displayed on the tv)
This is fine, but when i go to watch a movie in media player I can see the windows media player and sound but no video just a black screen.

However I have media centre on the pc and this works fine on the second display/tv.

Any thoughts ????

You have to enable the video overlay function, this is done by going to display properties for your gfx card.
