    HI.
    I recently added a second monitor to my working PC. Now I wanted MP 2.1 to be shown on this second monitor. This way I can watch TV or Videos or similar while working with my PC. There is a setting to select the "start monitor" in Settings > Appearance but the MP 2.1 Window always opens on the "primary" monitor instead of the "secondary". Only the splash screen is shown on the correct display.

    Debug Level logs attached...

    Is MP2 set to "Fullscreen" when starting?
    Can you please attach your "StartupSettings" from C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Client\Config\user\MediaPortal.UI.Settings.StartupSettings.xml?

    No, as this display is 4:3 and we don't have any 4:3 skin up to now. By the way I really would appreciate if we would have one. I could use it on 3 different systems, here, in Bedroom and on my Laptop all have 4:3 displays. I'm no fan of 16:9 computer monitors as 16:9 is nice for watching movies but not that nice if you are writing a letter...

    Can you please attach your "StartupSettings"
    Attached.

    In fullscreen it is working. But it should work in windowed mode too but doesn't...
    If I'm ending fullscreen mode the window jumps instantly to the other monitor. This is annoying, irritating and a bug, if you ask me.

    I also see this with MP2 2.1 pre2. I have 2 16:9 monitors, and run MP2 client in the lower right corner of the secondary monitor (as a small window), "always on top".

    If I close the client from that position, re-launching causes it to open in the lower right corner of the primary monitor.

    However, note that the (annoying full screen splash screen) appears on the secondary monitor for a few seconds before the client window opens (as expected). So the client knows which monitor it is supposed to use - but (at least in windowed mode) reverts to the primary monitor.
