Check to see if your soundcard settings are set to monitor the inputs (I
had this issue with a soundblaster under linux having monitor on by

All this primary and secondary mess should be avoided, why are you messing
with it to start with? Just open PD on your primary montior, open Gem and
drag the window onto your secondary monitor (or use the offset message to
the gemwin so that the x offset is the same as the width of your primary

I did have an issue with a windows (me) machine (with an nvidia card) that
would only render GL on the primary monitor, dragging the Gem window onto
the second monitor would cause it to stop rendering altogether. Hopefully
this is not the issue your talking about!
