I have a problem watching internet video broadcasting streams on my secondary screen (tv).

Using My Videos I access a .pls file which contains an index to asx files. E.g. :
Title1=[Spain][Spanish] Canal 24Horas TVE

On the preview within the Razor skin (I tried other skins as well! ) a small preview of the video broadcast is displayed on the right bottom corner. On the primary screen (monitor) this works perfectly. On the secondary screen (tv) I see three things happening:
- the display ratio has been changed!
- the screen is blinking all the time!
- i can see some of the video broadcast (times 3!) but totally messed up
Same problem occurs when I watch the broadcast stream in fullscreen ( by doubleclicking the preview. btw: is it possible to do this using the mce remote? )

I tried accessing the asx files using the microsoft media player and it works perfectly on both monitor and tv screen!

Can somebody plz help me out here?
