[AG-TECH] video only shows on primary display

Just in the process of coaxing our node into life. I've got the standard
G450 AGP and G200 PCI configuration set up on a dual CPU IBM IntelliStation
but have a problem in that the video from my cameras only shows up in the
It doesn't seem to matter whether the primary display is set to the LCD
monitor or a projector, PCI or AGP, as soon as I drag the Vic window onto
one of the other displays, the feed is lost - if I minimize and restore then
the window just picks up whatever is behind it. If I move it back into the
primary display, I see the video again.
The only two oddities I have noticed are that W2K Advanced Server (display
machine) only reports one of the G450 heads in the Matrox window control
panel, and the capture computer (also a dual CPU IntelliStation, Red Hat
7.2) reports that it can't find a monitor list and is using the 'main'
display. I don't know if that is at all significant.
Has anyone come across this problem? I had a search through the AG-Tech
archives, but didn't find anything.
Thanks for any suggestions.
