TV-Out on Radeon 9600 Pro

I just purchased a Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9600 Pro video card.  The card works well, but there is one thing I want to be able to do that I haven't figured out so far.

On my old system I was able to run tv-out such that I could play a game on the computer and have it also appear on a nearby TV.  This made it a lot easier if someone wanted to watch me play.  

The way I have it set up now, the TV is an extension of my desktop.  I can drag applications from my monitor to my tv, but what I really want is for my TV to just mimic the monitor output.  I tried setting the tv and the monitor to 800x600, but the tv is still acting as monitor #2, not a copy of monitor #1.  There doesn't appear to be a check box for what I want.

Thanks.

Uninstall the hydra vision software, and go to your display properties, settings tab, and make sure you see two monitors there and disable the extend desktop function, if the function is not there (usually double click on the monitor) uninstall the driver and reinstall the driver again.

The extend desktop function is present, so all I need to do is uninstall hydravision?

I will try it tonight when I get home from work.  Thanks for your help.

As it is now, the TV is seen as the extended monitor, thereby not displaying a duplicate of your monitor.  By turning this off, reinstalling hydravision/driver, the TV will display what the monitor displays.

I have it mostly working the way I want.

I went into the display properties for the TV and unchecked the box to extend my desktop onto that monitor.  Then I went into the display properties for my primary monitor and selected the TV as another output.  This allowed the TV to mimic the monitor.

The only problem I am having now is that my TV will not display computer game cut scenes or video files or dvds.  The TV will be working fine as I play a game, but as soon as I go to a cut scene, the TV goes blank.  Same thing if I open a movie file on my computer.  I can see the rest of my screen around my media player on the tv, and I can see everything on my monitor, but the movie itself is not displayed on the TV.  It only works if I extend to 2 desktops and run the video file on the TV desktop.  Any ideas on how to change that?

Thanks.
