Dear Readers,

I have an old ATI Radeon 9600 with a VGA, DVI, and S-Video output. I have a 22" Acer LCD panel connected via DVI, and a standard old tube TV connected via S-Video. I've extended my desktop onto the TV. The monitor is at 1680 x 1050 resolution, the TV is at 640 x 480 resolution. Since the desktop is extended, I have a copy of the background image on each display. On the LCD, the background image is stretched properly to fit into the screen size (I can see the whole image) but for some reason the TV image is HUGE and I can only see a section of it. Now I know since the resolution is lower the image will appear larger, but my desktop background settings are set to "Stretch" so shouldn't the image on the second display (TV) resize that image to fit the 640 x 480 resolution? Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but basically I want the TV to stretch to fit the background just as the LCD primary display is doing. Help please!

Thank you in advance!

 How you would go about having separate background images would depend on your card. ATI and Nvidia cards have different settings to accomplish that.

It's an ATI Radeon 9600 Pro, made by ATI.

use a program called untralmon it will also allow you to put two different images on the displays as well.

All,

Thanks for the responses, but I've just found a free utility that solves my exact problem!
