yeah. Listed as a known issue for 2.7.1, guess it's not fixed in 3.0 Beta 2

Same issue is in DisplayFusion too.

Goes away in both apps if I pretend my TV is on the right of my primary monitor and not the left.

The ciombined wallpaper file is constructed as it would be were my monitors reveresed. So the taskbar transparency ends up backwards in aero.

If I tell windows to centre the same image on both screens or move the TV right of the monitor in display settings it works properly.

My monitors are actually swapped over. The right wallpaper is actually to the left. I have to set it this way for the task bar transparency to work right...

I call mine "tidy" at the moment, but compared to most mine's going to look a tad cluttered, ah well. Moonwraith's May 2008. (Having 1 smaller monitor sucks)

OS: Windows XP
Theme: Some form of early Zune before the disgusting Orange
Background: Nine Inch Nails: Ghost extra

using dvi/hdmi or component?

You may want to try 1080i instead of 1080p also.

Bman, I really like that wallpaper. Is it an Assassin's Creed pic? Would you mind posting where you got it? Thanks!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
