WIN7 64 with dual monitor - doubles the picture

Postby workerb » Mon Jan 04, 2010 11:42 pm

Everything seemed to be going fine setting up the program until I plugged in my second monitor. Then it doubled the photo, squished it side by side from 1 to 1|1 2|2 so that the photo is displayed 4 times, twice on screen 1 and twice on screen two. My system uses an NVIDIA graphics card.

Any ideas what is happening and what I can do about it.

Actually, I have noticed that the 2nd image shown on each screen has a black border on the bottom as if it were intended for screen 2 - screen two has a resolution of 1680 by 1050 and screen 1 has a resolution of 1920 by 1080. Looking further that black bar is probably 30 px high

Are you using the free version or the full version?
If you are using the full version, please check the setup of your layouts and this will solve the problem.

I am using the full version and believe I have the layout set up correctly. It shows each monitor with the correct resolution. It still puts two images on each screen each image squished horizontally and vertically the first image on each screen is the height appropriate for screen 1 and the second image on each screen is the height appropriate for screen 2

Strange...
Can you go to the wallpaper settings of Windows 7 and make sure it's set to "tiling"?
