monitors in clone mode

  ian-inhome 16:43 15 Dec 2008

I have connected my P.C. up to my television with a s-video lead. I have set it up so that the television is a clone of the P.C. monitor.
Everything works perfectly except that I can’t get videos or dvds to appear on the T.V screen. If I insert a dvd or try to play a recording from the BBC I player, Windows Media Player (WMP11) appears on both screens but the video only plays on the P.C monitor.
Although if it is I player then the subtitles will appear on both but the film. is only on the P.C. monitor.
I have tried other programs i.e. win DVD or DDVD to play DVDs but though the control panel appears on both screens the film only appears on the P.C. monitor.
Any ideas please?
