    Go in to Displays and you need to check the box Mirror Displays. :cool:

    I don't see an option to Mirror Display under Displays. Am I missing something?

    The only options I have under Displays is Display/Color. Does the TV need to be hooked up to get the other options?

    Yes, connect your display then mess with the options, there will be mirroring and other new options to trick it.
