I can get the 46" LCD to work full screen only if I set windows display properties to use one display .

ie) " show desktop 2 only "

If I set the display properties to "duplicate these displays" I cannot fill the large 46" screen edge to edge , even with catalyst control.

So based on all that I think its a windows issue.

Anyone else having this type of issue?
I have the same problem using CCC 9.4. A Microsoft person said this is a known problem which they are working on.
