    As a worker for an audio-video installation company, I think I know a little bit.

    The HDMI cable I used is:
    Atlona ATF14031WL-15 50ft Flat HDMI Cable - White

    This cable is meant to be run through the wall however I do remember the price being about $150, I just saw it listed at $210.

    If the ATI card is DVI out only you'll need an ATI DVI to HDMI adapter or else you won't get the audio (wired differently than the standard DVI to HDMI adpater)

    jgraham11 I have one question for you since i am now using the wallpaper mode in VLC and directx video output. I noticed that the video does not seem to hold the proper aspect ratio on my TV, but rather full screens it. on the computer it is wide screen.

    I have the ati 4870 with the latest CCC software. on the same tab as the theatre mode option i have selected match source video for aspect ratio.

    I am not sure you can help me with this, or if others may have come across this.

    VLC Workaround

    I'm having exactly the same problem, the theater mode overlay just won't work. I tried the VLC wallpaper workaround and it works perfectly.

    But then I thought, does it have to be wallpaper?

    So I turned off the wallpaper mode check box and just left the video output setting to Dirextx with all my other theater mode setting the way they should be under CCC

    and behold! It actually works the way it's supposed to.

    Only problem, you have to use VLC... oh well, thank god it supports a large variety of formats!

    Just thought this might help some people.

    D3DFullScreen mode


    I think that VLC uses no overlay but Direct3D to render which method is capable by plenty of other players.

    All you need is:
    1. In the Windows : deactivate 'Aero' (MPCHC do it automatically for you)
    2. In a player :
    a) switch renderer to EVR (Custom Presenter) or MadVR
    b) switch mode to 3DFullscreen
    c) select second monitor as output

    But, on Windows 7 RC (or that was Vista?..), HD3850 and very old CCC (in 2008) I think i had DVBViewer Pro to work on my secondary display but via DirectX 7 renderer only (Aero left automatic off)

    This is not that old overlay, so this method is irrelevant to ATI's "theater mode" of cause just because it works without any "theater mode" without any ATI --> on nVidia GeForce too

    p.s.: one more thing: you may need to instal (and select as 'audio renderer') ReClock DirectShow Filter in order to have all smooth
