4 monitor system. getting a program thats maximized in one monitor on 2 monitors

Hello, I use a program called jriver. If it's in standard view, and display view i can drag the program as larger as i want it onto the other 4 monitorss. pic below shows me dragging it to the top 2 monitors

But when i put the program into (what they call) theaterview.. which is a HTPC type interface. I cannot get the theaterview to stretch to other monitors. it just sits in the first monitor.

Is there away for me to use display fusion to make that "theaterview" stretch to my second monitor. And EVEN to all 4 monitors if i wanted to?
Some people from Jriver say they dont think it can be done due to the fact that when jriver puts the program into "theaterview mode" it is then in a windows Maximized state. Which means windows will not allow it to stretch past the Default monitor it's set to be viewed on
Thanks In Advance!
This would be an AWESOME feature if possible!

Unfortunately due to technical limitations in Windows, it's not possible for us to force a full screen application to run over multiple monitors :(

It can be done if your video card supports it though. New ATI and nVidia cards have features called ATI Eyefinity and nVidia Surround, that allow you to configure multiple monitors to act as one large monitor. You lose some other functionality when doing this (like multi-monitor taskbars, multi-monitor wallpapers, etc), but if you absolutely need to have the full screen app stretch across multiple displays, it's definitely an option :)
