    Well a USB keyboard with a PS2 port on it makes the PS2 mouse just appear as a USB HID mouse, same as a USB mouse... however, I'm not sure that the touchscreen mouse driver appears as a standard HID mouse, so it may or may not work. The software does support multiple touch panels on the different monitors, so I guess, just get some stuff together and try it! They have a free demo.

    The more I think about it, the more I want to try getting one of those USB video cards and putting a second monitor up front... I already have the monitor too

    That would be nice if you do ever get that let me know how it works with the free demo

    But how would u run like the different mousse and different audio without the hardware they have?

    I cant seem to find any where on there site to buy the whole thing with the hardware it just seems like u can get the software but maybe I am missing something

    Yes I switched from the Xenarc screen to the lilliput screen some time ago, so I do have two touchscreens, but I don't have a second video card to test them with. The touchscreen driver has some support for multiple monitors/touchscreens internally, so this might interfere with BeTwin's trapping of USB mouse input. I will have to wait until i have some time to try to buy and fool with one of those USB video things to test this theory though..

    Or I might get a pci ATI all in wonder.. that would work too.. I can swap out the TV/Radio tuner for that..

    The really cool thing that I thought about the package they have on that site you showed me is that is has the ability to do audio for every different screen. So if you didnít get there hardware I donít know how you would do it might have to buy another sound card.
    I would imagine that is kind of what u get is a usb sound card and usb ps2 converter

    Is there any front end that supports sending different music to different sound cards and video to different displays.
    If I had two sound cards, could I use winamp running twice (one for each sound card) to play different music through/into the different sound cards ?

    Yes, winamp in theory could do this but you'd need to be careful about how you set it up. You'd possibly need two seperate installs of winamp to make it work -- i don't know how winamp saves its window positions and whatnot, but if it's in the registry, even two seperate installs won't work -- ie you'd have to move the window to the other screen every time you started winamp and change the output device of one winamp every time you started a second one ... You'd just need to experiment on this..

    Anyway, to get two winamps going ... somewhere in the settings there is an 'allow multiple instances' checkbox -- check that and it will let two copies of winamp run at the same time. Configure the output plugin on one to use a specific soundcard and the output plugin on the other to use another soundcard and viola! It ought to work fine. THe problem is the easy repeatability of this setup, which, as I said, you will probably just have to experiment with.

    Yes AIMEE does this, speak to Confused or Danceheaven either on this forum or UK Digital-Car.co.uk forum for more info on how they implemented it.
