    Hey, can anyone get ATi Theater Mode to work in Windows 7? This has always worked for me in XP. I am in Extended Desktop Mode and Theater Mode is set to full screen, but when I open a video it will just display the video on the Primary Display and it won't show the same video in the Secondary Display, it just shows the Extended Desktop. I have tried several media players but I have had no luck. This has always worked in Windows XP.
    I have been following every driver update since 9.12, and now I have the 10.7 drivers installed.

    Thanks for anyones help.

    Thanks for the help riekmaharg2, I had a look at that guide and there was alot of steps involved, so instead I just tried setting VLC player to Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode and now Theater Mode works. I should have tried that to begin with lol.
