    Windows 8.1 dual monitors.

    I use the computer to run JRiver media centre via HDMI to my LCD TV.
    I wish to run a second touch screen monitor.

    So basically I want to be able to watch a film or listen to music via JRiver theatre view on the TV and have the desk top/start screen running on a second monitor. Can I do this?

    Robgil,

    I see no reason you can't. Just remember to setup the screen you want to display the Start Screen as monitor 1. HTH
