Hey,

Basically i have my macbook hooked up to an external monitor,

i am running in extended desktop mode and i would like to run Front Row or iTunes in fullscreen on my external monitor, but not on my mac book screen,

but everytime ive tried to enter fullscreen mode on the external monitor it goes into full screen on my macbook aswell.

Is it possible just to run full screen on the external simultaneously so it doesnt effect my macbook screen?

thanks.

did u go into syspref and make the external your main monitor? Front row has to run on the main monitor, period. Quicktime can run whereever you drag it though.

front row doesnt have an option to not run on both displays. what are you trying to play? quicktime should play everything front row does?
