Hi - now I'm not using an external monitor nor my HDTV for watching movies so cannot comment on the choices that might be offered in SYSTEM PREFERENCES > DISPLAY once an additional monitor(s) is attached.

But, the brightness on the computer monitor could be set down or a 'hot corner' could be setup in Mission Control (also in SP) to start a 'blank' screen saver immediately - I'd probably just do the latter. Good luck and let us know your solution. Dave
