  • Via Epia - can I use VGA and RCA video outs at same time?

    I want to run my VGA-input screen upfront and two NTSC-input screens in the rear headrests - can you set the board to send the signal to both?

    If not, any other solution?

      Don't quote me on this, but I don't think you can. I've tried on mine without success. I remember seeing a post on this a while ago, but I can't seem to find it.

      A way to get around this is to buy a VGA splitter and scan convert one of the signals to provide your composite display. Not exactly cost effective, but it'll work.

        I think initializing one turns off the other.

        If you email via they are usually pretty good about answering questions quickly. If it's just a driver issue they will probably promise you it in the next driver update (when ever that is)

          You sure can, i have mine setup on my bench right now doing some maintinance. I have it running a 17inch monitor on vga and a psone lcd on the tv out at the same time.

          I have the m1000 and there is a setting in the bios you have on 'vga+tv' also set the option in the advanced tab in display properties.

            You can

            I have 3 composite screens and 1 VGA all at the same time.

            With the VIA on-board video card you can't run video on all at the same time(to do with overlay if your interested). You will need to choose which to run video on.
