Let me explain. My computer has a 512 ram with an AMD 1600 XP nothing to brag about, but it should be enough to run MP. I have no problems with MP when I run it with my computer screen, it runs smoothly. The problem comes when i connect the computer to the tv and I visualize MP on my tv. ALL of a sudden it starts 2 use 70% of my cpu and you can figure out how smoothly that goes. I tried to shut almost everything down but that didnt work. I have to say that I have not encountered that type of problem when I run other programs on my tv. Is there an easy solution to this? :roll:

    Media portal is a directx application (which other apps arent), so it renders its gui just like a game does. The way its setup, directx acceleration will only work on the primary monitor.
