    The ATI Catalyst Control Panel has many options for setting up the display modes, you can set it up to show the exact same thing on both screens or have on desktop stretched across both screens. It also have several settings for image quality that apply to gaming and video playback. Latest version is Catalyst 7.1.

    Avoid getting drivers from Windows Update unless you have no other choice.

    The best place to get drivers is from the manufacturer's website, in this case that'd be ATI. ATI releases a driver each month with fixes and improvements.

    No, the signal would be scaled down to whatever the TV can handle. There's very few 1080p sets out, most are 720p or 1080i, and that matches most of the current HDTV signals.

    Hey, everything is working fine, but every now and then the movie rolls up, is there a way to stop this? Like a ripple and then it goes away.

    Not sure about that. Could be a refresh rate setting in the driver.

    Did you ever figure this out? I upped the refresh rate to the highest and it still does it.

    Have you updated to the latest driver?

    It could be a number of things, it could even be the TV.

    I don't know what it could be, you could try calling/contacting the TV manufacturer to see if they have any suggestions for setting changes while its connected to a computer.
