I have my 24' iMac desktop extended to an external 27' HDTV on the DVI input. I also have an Xbox 360 connected to the 27' on the HDMI input and switch back and forth as needed.

In between Xbox matches (COD5 is awesome) I check various websites, email, chat, whatever... and occasionally, the application I'm needing to look at is on the 27'... which I can't see because I'm on the Xbox HDMI input.

While ultimately all I need to do is change the input on the 27' to view the iMac extended desktop which shows said application... if you knew the gauntlet of commands and menu sequences to simply change an input on that **** TV, you'd understand my desire for an alternate solution.

I'm looking for a way or application to tile all open applications on the main/default display with a flick of the mouse or command key sequence.

It doesn't necessarily need to be tiled, just moved to the display that I can see and not the Xbox one. Does anyone know of such an animal?

Thanks all,
Dave

Is there something of a workflow you can create in Automator?

Is it? I've never played with Automator. Well, that's not entirely true, I did once write a script (if you can call it that) to rename all my MP3's to mp3's. But for moving a window from one display to another?... How'd you do that?

Does this all make sense?

In essence, I'd like to be able to gather all open windows/applications onto one particular desktop/display.

Can be an application itself, a hot-key, a mouse-gesture, whatever, as long as I don't have to get up (TV's ~5 feet away) and change the input on the TV/Monitor (pain in the ***** sequence).
