I'm running my jukebox PC through both a 17" PC monitor and my 29" TV.
Currently I have the icons set to large, DPI right up and large text etc so that the TV picture is semi-readable.
Consequently the resulting desktop on my PC monitor is not great as can only show/display about 1/2 of the window at a time with large text etc.
Is it possible to create two seperate distinct desktop profiles with their own Icon, text, DPI settings and apply one to the PC monitor and the other to the TV?
Running Win XP Pro SP1 and an AOPEN 128MB AGP card with a TV-out.

If you run Linux - Yes

Windows - No

The Nvidia divers maybe able to do separate settings. (If u use the Nvidia based drivers).

One just has to figure out how to! Or you could try TVtool. Forgot where this is.

I was trying to connect this thing to a 29'. I've tried the TVTool / Ultramon / Nvidia drivers setup. And nothing seemed to work!

The only thing I could think of why it doesnt work, is the cables I used either dont work, or I need to get one long cable without extra connections on it to connect it to a TV.
