    Displaying XP games on HDTV with MBP
    XP displays perfectly on my HDTV from my MBP.

    The problem is, no matter what settings I choose

    in the ATI Catalyst Control Center, games will only

    display on the MBP screen. Does anyone know

    how I can resolve this issue and play games on the

    big screen?

    Go into Display in Control Panel

    Under Settings you should be able to configure which device you want to display them on. If that wont work go Advanced and use the Catalyst Wizard and that should help.

    I already changed practically every setting in Catalyst. I've tried clone mode...extended desktop mode....i've tried changing the TV to primary monitor....pretty much every logical combination of settings and no luck so far.

    ****, to be honest I have lots of difficulty with the ATI drivers for duel support to. Nvidia (since they absorbed 3dfx) have so much better software people.

    I'm hoping since the recent acquisition of ATI by AMD they will improve. However this superfluous information doesn't help you unfortunately.

    I just play around and I eventually get it to run. Perhaps on a more windows centric forum someone will understand more completely the arcane process of working with ATI software.

    I couldn't agree more. I called ATI today and they said they have no support for laptops, ESPECIALLY not Macs. Thanks alot ATI!

    The reason this is really getting under my skin is because when I first installed Boot Camp I was able to play games on my TV, so I know it's possible.
