I have some type of extra phantom monitor that shows up in my settings.

I've connected the R60 to our flat panel television and if you'll notice in one of the screenshots it reports three monitors now?!

I'm new to ATI graphics for the R/T6x series but I'm pretty sure there should only be one monitor in the "change the appearance of your displays" box. Is there a simple solution that I can fix through GUI? Perhaps the wrong ATI driver is installed?

Don't know where the 3rd monitor comes from, but normally any TP has 2 monitors, one the internal (digital) LCD, and two the external (analog) VGA port, regardless of whether connected to something or not.
