How do I add a video card to a motherboard with built-in video and use two tv-outs to run different things on different monitors?
I want to put in some headrest monitors and have them show only visualizations/animations/music videos/movies and not the winamp control screen or GPS. Anyone have this setup?
There might have been a post on this before but i can't find it.
Yer thats is true. Typically if an onboard video card detects another video card on boot-up the internal video card will disable itself by default.....
Project - GAME OVER :(
so would i have to get two pci cards or what?
Windows 2000 enables you to extend your desktop over multiple monitors. You can eg. develop a website on one monitor and view the results on the other display.
I think that Windows 98 SE also supports this feature (not 100% sure).
2 PCI cards should work. Saw a demonstation of it.
Windows 98 supports multiple displays, but don't count on using the motherboard's onboard video. Odds are you will have to disable it and install two real video cards. Most of the cheap S3 PCI cards will support two in one system. Or, you could get something like the dual Matrox card that simply puts two cards in one.

Nvidia has dual output cards. Usually one is a LVDS output, but theres an adapter to make it fit a 15-pin VGA cable, or an NTSC cable. My geforce2 mx on my desktop has dual output, but the video card company didn't solder on the digital port. Oh well.
Free entrance to heaven? WOW! I DUN BELIEVE! JC!
Cool. Now does anyone know about software solutions to the following:
When I play MP3's or have GPS on I want either a screen saver or a visualization to be on one of the monitors. Then when I play a movie or a music video I want to have the same thing on both screens OR the option of having it on both screens. So is there a mirroring program that can be assigned a shortcut key?
Also, is there a dual output TV card with two tv outs?
