I recently installed an MSI 680GTX in my mid 2010 Mac Pro 5,1 and I now have three screens hooked up: Dell U3011 (display port), 23" Apple Cinema Display (DVI-D) and a 46" Samsung HDTV (HDMI). I've installed the latest Nvidia web drivers and have all three screens working.

I like to watch NBA Leagues Pass on the big screen in my living room so I have run 50ft of cable to the TV. I normally mirror the screen but was wondering if there is a way for me to view the fullscreen content on the TV in another room. I can drag windows to that screen but since it's another room I can't see it to manage the content once it's on that screen. Is there any way to mange this is in Mountain Lion, even if it's a third party app?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (even if it's a suggestion to use Windows as I have Windows 8 installed but I would prefer an OSX solution).

Mountain Lion has AirPlay Mirroring built in but I don't think the Mac Pro supports it.

Thanks, I do have an Apple TV. I will try it out.
