Tried to configure dual-monitors today but don't seem to be able to make the smaller right-hand one the dominant (main) one, have tried changing settings in 'Display' and tick 'Nvidia Settings' checkbox to 'Make this the primary display for the X screen' but always end up with the larger left-hand (TV) monitor as the premier, any ideas on how to fix this?

Dual monitor setup is covered in the help manual.

Thanks AVJ, all fixed now, only one issue...couldn't see the "All Settings" button mentioned in the manual but just opened appropriate 'desktop' icon in the menu.

Sounds like you missed the first step "Go to Menu, Settings, Settings Manager.", this is why you didn't see the "All Settings" button.

Glad you got it sorted out. :)
