    Anyone running dual Xenarc monitors?

    Ive been thinking about putting in a second monitor. One for my piggy back fuel computer, msd ignition.. obdII etc.. Id like to have one screen play all that stuff and the other screen will run just Media Engine.

    Has anyone run dual monitors? How does it interact with Media Engine and the system? I can't see any problems, but i thought I would ask.

    I am working on similar set up.
    I setup using cheap video card I got off ebay and I worked OK.

    I am thinking about GPS on one monitor all the time, and whatever frontend
    software on second. Correct me if I'm wrong, since none of the frontend software support dual monitor (as of now), the GPS need to be not embedded in frontend software.

    I got bigger issue to work put right now, but it should be nice once I get this setup in my car.

    yeah the software wouldn't have to be embedded. you wouldn't even need to run the software through your media player. you could put the icons on that seperate screen

    I would do that I guess.

    but it would be nice if some software support dual monitor and could select what features (like GPS, DVD and obdII) to be shown on which monitor.

    I think developer of MMC said they would support dual (or multiple) monitor.

    What do you think Frodo? Will you give it a go?
