Default Re: DFP and TV: I want DFP to be the primary display!

I'm a bit surprised the powers that be have such a hard time understanding what the problem is.

I have a 1280x1024 dfp I use as my display, and occasionally I will hook up an 800x600 projector to the VGA port to watch movies. The projector is always treated as the first display! This sucks. Kicker appears on the projector (makes it hard to switch tasks while someone is watching a movie with the projector) Also I cannot get the second display to have a higher resolution than the first, so to use the projector, I am limited to 800x600 on the dfp. (If I give the second display a higher resolution in MetaModes, it simply displays nothing).

The dfp is always plugged in, the projector: rarely. Thus, I want the dfp to be the primary display but from all I have read here that seems to be impossible, and that is not an acceptable limitation.
