    Pretty simple question.

    I have a 24" LED as my main display at work, connected to my 17" uMBP. When I go into Photobooth, it displays from the 17". How do I get it to work on the 24" display? Or is this even possible?

    You need to make the 24" the primary display by moving the menu bar over to it under the screen configuration.

    That's how it is set now. 24" is the main display, and the 17" is the secondary one. I'm not using Mirroring either.

    Yep, and it shows up in System Profiler as well.

    restart your mbp and try again...sometimes its a graphics card issue.

    not implying there may be something wrong with your graphics card, just that command lines get all mixed up when a computer has been on for a long time.
