The EPG overlay that shows current programming on any given channel shows up fine on my PC but is not visible on my TV. Any ideas?

Specs for my system in my signature.

Sounds like a classic primary vs. secondary display problem.

I'd suggest making sure you're displaying on the primary display. See the following knowledge base article for more information:

One step forward, two steps back.

I made the TV the primary. It displays the overlay on both screens now, but the ViewScape and everything associated with it only display on the PC monitor. It's really weird because some of the Windows dialog boxes appear on the PC monitor and some display on the TV. It's about to drive me crazy.

I guess I had the video card mode setting wrong. The darn thing didn't come with a manual explaining what each setting meant so I've been winging it. Apparently, the mode should be set to "clone" rather than "dual view" like I had it.

Now the only problem I'm experiencing is when I first start Live TV the picture is all distorted. If I go back to ViewScape and restart Live TV, it seems to clear itself up.
