Had this posted in the EyeFinity forum but it seems no one really goes in there, so I'm going to post it in here since its likely associated with the suite anyway.


I've recently upgraded my desktop and originally ordered the, XFX Double D HD 7950 card.  I installed it, updated drivers, and tested and if I streamed a movie, or played one direct from my PC I could choose which monitor it was playing on (I have 3 monitors setup), unfortunately there were issues with this card and it would overheat no matter what I did, major issue, so I returned it and was refunded.


I then ordered the, Asus Radeon HD7950 card, and I experienced no issues with running any highend games videos, etc, but if I want to watch movie while I am working on something, it expands across all 3 monitors, I have never been able to get them to expand on only one monitor.


Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?  I saw the Hydravision but apparently thats only for up to, two monitors, so thats no good to me.

Disable your eyefinity group. And just have it so your monitors are set up in extended mode. When you create an eyefinity group. in my case 5294x1050 if you full screen a movie it puts it in the center, and leaves the other two blank. So to do that, set yourself up some eyefinity group hot keyes. So you can switch between 3x1 extended, and 3x1 single large display.
