Some general full screen video on secondary monitor questions.

I have a dual monitor setup. A Viewsonic LCD as my primary and a Viewsonic CRT as my secondary, connected to a Geforce 6800 Ultra with NGO 92.91 drivers. In the forceware settings, Full Screen video is set to Auto-Select.

When I play most video files, the video gets sent in full display to the secondary monitor as well as being played in the media player on the primary. The same with Premiere, the monitor selected (clip/program) gets sent to the secondary monitor. This is fine. Exactly what I want, however there're 2 problems I've encountered. Quicktime .MP4 files encoded for iPod Video wont get displayed on the secondary and niether will uncompressed AVI with a 0.948 aspect ratio. In Premiere, the latter video plays in real time very choppily, and I suppose it's because of the huge file size.

Is there any other reason why the videos wont get displayed on the secondary monitor? Could it be driver issues? After Effects also doesnt send the preview video to the secondary monitor as Premiere does.

Also, the colour between the two monitors is a bit of an issue. The secondary monitor's colours simply seem paler than the primary video and I'm struggling getting the colour to match perfectly, both with the monitor settings and the nVidia colour correction tool. Can anyone give tips on this?

Thanks.

Note: this thread has been moved from the monitors forum to the PC forum because it seems to relate more to PC hardware/software than video monitors.

I sorted out the quicktime problem, but am still encountering issues with colour matching.
