Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 64-bit
W7 WMP 12 visualization full screen on extended display issue

I am currently using my HDTV to extend my desktop. I know of the different set up options: clone, extended, and extended orientation. When I use Windows Media Player 12, I want the full screen visualization to show up on my TV(secondary display) while I continue to work on my laptop's display(primary display). The issue is that if I put the player and visualization window on to the TV display(secondary display), then go full screen, the visualization window freezes on TV display and full screen visualization shows up on laptop display. If I make the TV display the primary display, the full screen visualization does show up on TV display only I lose access to taskbar on laptop display(now secondary display). Cloning obviously doesn't work, it puts full screen visualization on both displays. Also, when I do have the full screen running and click anywhere on either displays, the full screen closes and returns to normal window. These issues apply when I watch videos as well. Currently I am forced to re-size viewing window so that it fills tv display as "MAXIMIZE" would. Only this kills the effect of "FULL SCREEN". Call me spoiled but it's what I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
