    When you are using the "alternative fullscreen Splashscreen" option and change the display configuration (primary/extended desktop) the splashscreen starts on the wrong display.

    I have this issue in 2 different setups where at one time I had to exchange the allocation of the control monitor for the Windows desktop and the LCD-TV to the 2 used graphics adapters.

    What both setups have in common is that they use 2 graphics-adapters (could be important for reproducing the error?).
    One graphics-card is used exclusively for the LCD-TV and one is for the Windows-desktop (and in my setup used for the attached logs additionally for a touchscreen).

    After I changed the display configuration I also had to change the start-screen in MP-configuration.
    So I guess that MP itself uses the correct display selected as start-screen in MP-configuration.
    But the display where the alternative splashscreen starts does not correctly use the information of the selected start-screen.
    (Or selects the wrong graphics card)

    Kind regards
