That's with it on. Is that normal?
Edit: I'm still having tearing issues, if I sync to the TV it's ok on the TV but not on the TV, if I sync to the DFP it's ok on the DFP but not on the TV. I don't think I had this issue with the older drivers..or was it always impossible to sync to both screens even if they are running at the same vrefresh?
