Radeon Theater Mode with SP3 :)

Can anyone using a dual display Radeon (mine is 8500 but I presume 7000/7500/9000 are the same) confirm whether Windows 2000 SP3 has now enabled movies to run minimized while still outputing the overlay to a second display (Theatre Mode enabled). XP has always done this correctly but previously with 2000, Media Player and such would not continue outputting while minimized.

I wonder if SP3 really was the fix or if it was something else.

*edit*

Nevermind. Misunderstanding on my part.

No it doesn't work. If you minimize on the main monitor, it minimizes on the clone screen too. I'm running Win2K SP3 and have a 8500LE outputting to a TV btw. Don't know if it'll be different for a genuine second monitor.
