View Full Version : Dual Screen Issue

January 4th, 2009, 09:10 PM
Running Boxee on my dual screen Windows box doesn't seem to work at all. If I launch from an icon on my primary display and drag Boxee over, I get a black screen.

If I launch from an icon on the secondary display the screen is scrambled (primary screen is still clear) and I can tell that the arrow keys are working, but I can't see anything.

Any other dual screeners out there?

Hi, is this issue resolved yet? I'm trying to figure out how to use boxee on my second screen, but I'm at a loss. I'm running Boxee on a Vista ultimate box.

I have a similar issue with Vista ultimate 64 bit - ATI Radeon HD 3600 video card. I can not get Boxee to play on the extended desk top.

I'm running 4 screens and effectively running boxee on my secondary. I had to update my nvidia drivers to the absolute latest then it worked fine. I'm on vista ultimate 32bit.

I have a Nvidia FX 5600 ultra scrambled boxee in full screen

I've tried on the DVI output and the VGA output and with the same results, whenever I start boxee the screen goes scrambled. When boxee is not started the screen looks fine.

I used envyng to install the nvidia drivers. This sucks, anybody know of a fix?
