    she has a monitor and a tv hooked up in different rooms
    i would use clone but the screens have different resolutions (1600x900 & 1920x1080)

    did you try using flash in full screen?
    Yes works fine, okay so your having issues with the 340?

    How are you connecting them? If it's DVI + HDMI that will not work according to Nvidia it has to be VGA and DVI. It simple does not have the power for dvi + hdmi so maybe that's why it's not working.

    somehow i typo-ed 430 at the top of my post
    NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 430] - so there is no more confusion about what the GPU is

    which desktop environment are you using
    and what does this command give you
    Code:
    glxinfo | grep OpenGL | head -4
    Using HDMI and DVI
    1920x1080 60Hz HDMI
    1600x900 60Hz DVI
    if there is a way to lower the resolution on the HDMI one to 1600x900 i could use cloned output
    i know this is working the card like a horse but it works

    HDMI doesn't mean you have to use 1920X1080, open your NVDIA-SETTINGS and set your monitor to 1600X900.

    The primary monitor is 1600x900_60 (happens to be a dvi monitor)
    the second monitor is 1920x1080_60 (happens to be a tv connected by hdmi)
    both screens are the same aspect ratio the tv does not list 1600x900 in the supported resolution list
    if there was a way to make it scale a 1600x900 res to fit the tv i could use a cloned display as a workaround for the issue

    another workaround i found would be switching monitors back and forth using disper
