VNC might do the trick.  But if you think of the laptop as a remote 
control, and in general terms how the average video device works, menu 
and control reaction are observed on the main display.  I would think 
along the lines of a remote control program on the laptop and the 
complimentary listening service on the server.

Otherwise, I would think that issuing a VLC command to direct output to 
a specific display is required.

Just a thought.
