    I have a MacBook white, when I watch Hulu Desktop full screen, everything is perfect. If I connect my MacBook to my TV through a Mini-DVI to DVI adapter connected to a DVI to HDMI cable and I tell my Mac the TV is a second monitor and move Hulu Desktop to that screen and put it full screen the video stutters to be unwatchable. If I just mirror the display and set Hulu Desktop full screen, everything is fine. Any ideas why this is happening?

    It's probably your computer trying to pipe out the video to a higher definition, and it's harder to do that.

    What's the resolution on the TV?

    How old is your macbook?

    Check and see what the maximum resolution output is for the macbook.
    Don't go above that and see if it still happens.

    Wow, thanks for the quick responses. By using a lower resolution Hulu works perfectly. Thanks again!

    Now if only Spaces would work correctly with second displays...
