mpc doesn't work with multiple monitors

    I have a setup of 1 normal primary monitor and 3 NECWT610 projectors/monitors all connected to a single PC with 2 nVidia Quatro FX570 graphics cards (so that's 4 DVI outputs, 1 for each monitor). I have set up all monitors for dual view, all with the same resolution and refresh rate. I can use other Windows applications accros all monitors without any trouble. Media Player Classic however doesn't play anything for the 3 projectors. It plays fine on the normal primary monitor, but it won't play on any of the projectors. I am using the following syntax to start a movie:
    mplayerc <localmoviepath> /new /fullscreen /play /monitor [1-4]
    Is this a shortcoming of Media Player Classic? Am I using incompatible command line switches? Does anything else look suspicious? Please help.

      Your command line looks good.  You may want to try to encase the PATH\mplayerc.exe in quotes along with localmoviepath in it's own set of quotes.  I have seen different issues with this on windows based systems.  I have tested this command line on my own system (dual monitor and both work simutaneously)...

      "C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe" /new /fullscreen /play /monitor 2 "c:\Show2.avi"

      "C:\Program Files\K-Lite Codec Pack\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe" /new /fullscreen /play /monitor 1 "c:\Show.avi"

      If creating a sendto link, you can just leave off the "c:\Show.avi" part, and the app will figure things out right.  This is usually the easiest way to call the long command lines.
