Hello,

I'm trying to set up my fc6 system to play videos on my HDTV. I've installed the latest nvidia beta drivers (9626) and I've setup twinview to recognize my HDTV as a clone screen. But I can't figure out how to get videos to automatically play full screen on the HDTV regardless of what I'm doing on screen 1 (lcd monitor).

As a workaround, I have set the hdtv up as a clone monitor and centered it manually, but the different resolution (1280x720 - hdtv, 1280x1024 - lcd) means I'm losing the top and bottom of the screen on the hdtv. This isn't a huge problem if I'm watching widescreen videos, but I wish there was a way to make the HDTV adjust to the native resolution of the video.

nvidia 6600
zenith hdtv via DVI

Any help at all is appreciated.
Thanks,
