Yea, I just stream over LAN from the file server. My htpc is just an old pc running xbmc, with a media portal backend for recording tv.
ah, sweet. I really must get round to sorting everything out
I think first on the agenda is a screen that can have as many of my retro consoles connected at once, then next up is a scarily good home made PC, then a pretty decent HTPC (along with a completely new home network ) and finally a really high spec MacBook Pro (with W7 under bootcamp, naturally ). That should make me happy with my PCs for the next, say, 5 years, for about the cost of a good car
time to start saving

I see from your system specs that your laptop has an Nvidia graphics chipset... Why don't you set the drivers to use dualview instead of just extending your desktop? Then you can set each monitor resolution independently and you shouldn't have the taskbar issue.

yeah, I use IRC and Twitter a lot, but they are normally in shorter 'bursts'/messages, so doesn't seem apparent then. However, it does on here

yeah, I used to do that, but I disliked having it just as extra space
Silly, I know, but I decided to choose the nicer looking rather than the most productive this time round

Well, I must admit I haven't tried Windows 7 with multiple monitors, but with Windows XP on my work PC, I use DisplayFusion to add a taskbar to my second monitor. It also has a bunch of other features that make life way easier with multi-monitor setups...
