Windows 7: WMC7 (64 bit) suddenly not defaulting to 2nd monitor

WMC7 (64 bit) suddenly not defaulting to 2nd monitor

Hello all,

My PC is in my master bedroom. My primary monitor is a 20" LCD. My secondary monitor is a TV (42" LCD tv).

Ever since I set this computer up with the TV as a second monitor, whenever I launch Windows Media Center, it would show up full-screen on the TV. This is how I wanted it and it worked wonderfully.

2 days ago, it began displaying WMC on my 20" monitor instead. I then have to click the "restore down" icon, drag the window over to the 42" monitor (TV) and then maximize it. It will work fine for the duration of the usage. Once I quit WMC, though, the next time I launch it, it will show up on the 20".

I haven't changed anything and I can't figure out how to make it default to the tv again.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I've tried searching, but can't find anything about this specific issue.

Thanks for any help.
