View Full Version : Maybe a bug: no video in second display
12-25-2006, 07:50 PM
When I drag the placeshifter window from my primary display to the secondary display, the video goes black. The On-screen display still works. Anyone else have this problem?

I don't know if this is correct. It is just a guess.
Placeshifter uses Overlay mode to display the video. Overlay mode can only work on one display device at a time.
This may be dependent on your video hardware, or it may be true for all video cards running in overlay mode.

Perhaps check for an updated video card driver. PS does use overlay for playback, but I am able to drag the PS window from one monitor to the other & the video will still work within the PS window after the window gets moved to the next monitor.

It was because I was using "Overlay". Change it to default.

Forgive my confusion (I'm new here), but I don't know what "Overlay" mode is or where to find it. Is it a setting in Sage, or on my Mac?

I'll move your other post to a separate thread so it has its own topic.
