The Theatre Mode functionality since at least Omegas 2.5.97a (based on Cats 4.12) give the option to show video content on other than the primary display device, which is what I was looking forward to for a long time now.
It is probably old news to most of you, but I thought I'd mention it nonetheless since I just stumbled upon it by chance and it really helps if you want to use your TV-out to have someone watch TV/Video and at the same time play/work on that machine!
It works flawlessly and I don't have to change resolutions anymore when using TV-out because I can set it to automatically show Video content in full screen
Go check it out:
Activate your secondary display in the Displays tab of the display setup/advanced page, then goto the Overlay tab and there click theater mode... set options to suit your needs and enjoy!

sweet.. works great.. i can now play games and watch tv at the same time...

but it still need a litte work imo. If i minimize it .. the screen disapears.. however if i set it so that when minimized.. it shows as see through window or desktop or whatever.... it'll stay on the tv.. but it interfers with the game.
