Problem with Extended Desktop on TV

I have a x800pro, and for a long time I've been extending my desktop onto my TV via the S-Video connection. It has always worked fine, and Windows Media Player CLASSIC plays all video types just fine on the TV. However, when I drag WMP11 or Winamp onto the TV, the video does not show up and it usually locks up the program. I have already changed the Hardware Acceleration slider - tried every single position of the slider, but it still does the same thing. Any ideas?

    Well I clicked around in CCC and found some options for Standard Mode and Theater Mode. It magically works in Theater Mode, but it's not the exact same thing. The Winamp player remains on my computer screen, but it shows it fullscreen on the TV. I guess this will work.

    I've had issues with S-video also on a PC I just switched to DVI... but from the sounds of it I am sure your TV doesn't have that...
