Just got my Vanilla (had a 16 MB SH before that). ummm under win2k mpegs don't show any video on my secondary display. Is this supposed to happen? Is there any setting that will allow me to do so (Using 5.14 )

I think this is normal behaviour. I'm sure someone else will be able to explain all the techy stuff involved, but I could only watch streaming Real Media on my main display, and not the secondary.

This is normal.
G400 will not play a video overlay on the secondary display, unless that display is a TV, and you are using DVDMax mode (which works on most types of overlay), or clone mode.
