Default Question about my second lcd.

Hey guys today I bought a 2nd lcd to use for my 360 (since 360 doesn't support 1680x1050) and is 1280x1024 rez. Now from what I read it seems that you can't launch a game on the 2nd monitor in fullscreen, only windowed. Is there any way to circumvent that to allow the game to be launched in full res on that lcd? The only way I can think of is to select that monitor to be primary when I play. I haven't received my new lcd yet though, but finding out if it's possible before then would be grand.

Some games use a switch in the shortcut target or config, others like Oblivion can be set from the options.

Is there any general command I can add to test it out? Google results have been coming up empty so far.
