Hi, I am trying to view IPTV Smarters Player on my external monitor. The first thing you need to know is my Acer Aspire 5 is already hooked up to an external monitor via the HDMI output, which works perfectly well. The problem is the Smarters Player opens in full screen mode on the laptop screen and there appears to be no way to change this. Normally I'd minimise an application & simply drag it up to my external monitor (which sits above my laptop). The Player Settings are minimal, you can only a) alter the type of stream and b) switch parental controls on/off. On the Acer my options are show 1 only/show 2 only/duplicate/extend. You would think extend wouldn't you but I can't minimise/drag the Player? Rearranging the displays still leaves the Player in full-screen mode on the laptop. I can't be the only person that wants to work from a laptop and have a film/show running on my external monitor....surely? Thanks for reading.
