Default Twinview but keep apps on 1st screen

I'm trying to setup twinview with my laptop screen and tv via tv-out. When I enable twinview, it extends my whole desktop (including taskbars) all the way across both displays (so the 2nd half of the taskbar is on the tv).

I want to keep the desktop, taskbars, windows, etc just on my laptop display, and use the tv just for viewing videos in full screen.
How can I do this?
I've been searching for hours, but cant work out how to do it.

Basically I just want to watch full screen videos on the tv, and work on my desktop on the laptop screen... surely I can do this?

Note, I also tried to setup using separate x screen, but then I only had display on the tv, and my laptop screen had no output (black screen)

Any help very appreciated, thank you

you must have done something wrong with the configuration in both cases, because neither reported behaviour is the way it should be.

please attach your xorg.conf and tell us which window manager you use. Without that information, all we can do is guess.
