... assuming you have such a key.

I don't.

--> I don't run WMC in full-screen mode on Monitor #1, so as not to lose the cursor for my other Monitor #2.

But this is fine, as I prefer watching HDTV in a window on my 24" LCD (too large in full-screen when I'm sitting at the desk and close to it) used as Monitor #1. It also gives me the rest of that monitor to actually have other windows open for use while I'm watching TV, as well as using Monitor #2.
