Recently purchased a 3850 pro gfx card for the hdmi port.

I have a 19inch monitor for gaming and a 32 inch sony bravia lcd. Hdmi cable from pc to the tv which is fine as it displays full screen when I have both of them turned on.

However if I am watching a tv show or movie from the pc it displays the image as 1280 x 1024 so it doesn't fit the full screen of the tv. Now only way I can get it to work is to select the tv as a 2nd monitor and tick "extended desktop" and "default monitor" but this is annoying as both monitors are being used.

I would like to be able to set up both monitors indivudually so if I am gaming I select the 19inch monitor and if I want to watch a movie I select the tv as the only monitor with no "extending desktop"
