SageTV display cutoff using secondary display

Hi everyone,
I'm having problems getting SageTV to display on my 1080i CRT using the secondary display. When I max the screen on that display it only shows 3/4 of Sage. (It doesn't resize it. It cuts the picture off.)

When I use the 1080i CRT as the primary display everything works fine but it's extremely hard to use it this way as my PC/monitor is in the basement and my CRT is on the 1st floor right above it.


1. Is anyone else using the second display successfully with SageTV? And if so is there a trick to get SageTV maximized on that display without being cut-off?
2. Is there a way to get Windows to display the taskbar on the second display by default? (This would allow me to do regular Windows stuff in the basement with the second display and have SageTV display on the primary screen.)


System profile: SageTV, Java 1.6.0_03, Abit IP35 Pro, ATI Radeon HD 2600XT, 2 core quad Q6600 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM

This sounds like a issue I saw when I first when I first started using a secondary display. I was using the client on the secondary and noticed this issue when I moved the client to the secondary display. I think the client only checks the screen size when it starts up. I had to move the client to the secondary, then shut it down and then restart it on the secondary screen. It would use the proper display size.
