Windows 7: ATI Catalyst Control Center (CCC) not displaying "Theater Mode" option

ATI Catalyst Control Center (CCC) not displaying "Theater Mode" option

I have read quite a few threads talking about this both here and elsewhere and none of them seem to give me any advice that both applies to my specific situation and resolves the issue.

I am using an XFX 5770 card with a dual monitor setup and would like to be able to run theater mode l did in the past on my old system with a 4650 card (XP installed on the old system).

The two monitors are the same that I used on the old system when the theater mode worked as are the cables (HDMI to a 52" Samsung and DVI adaptor to VGA cable for a small regular monitor). Since the cabling and the monitors are the same as they had been when it was working on the other system I ruled them out the cause of the trouble.

I have tried the 10.6 and 10.5 CCC versions and nothing seems to work.

Here is a screen grab of what the CCC looks like for me without the theater mode option:

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Welcome to Seven Forums fru. I don't have CCC so can't really help. All I found mentions having 2 monitors and theater mode only working with Overlay, and also certain media players. Bumping this hoping someone can help.

These steps work in Vista and should work in Windows 7 check the following:
In display manager you use CLONE Under AVIVO VIDEO - Theater Mode -Select The. Mode – In Theater Mode (Full Screen)
Theater Mode Setting - marked Scale to full Screen
