    Touch screen function: I want two Xenarc screens showing media engine and Deltadash

    Will the USB touch screen work with two screens at the same time? I would like to have Media engine on one and delta dash on the other. It is for a Subaru BTW.

    Delta Dash shown in this thread OBD connector on 2004 Subaru STi.

    need more info on your setup. If your using an all nvidia dual mon solution, there are options to set which monitor each program will open on.

    The video card is the cheapest part of the problem... I figured any dual-head will do. I don't however know if the touch screens will work on both.

    2 LCD screens w touch

    also any dual head probably wont do, well it probably will, but they are not all equal. ATI's drivers suck *** for dual head, i would go with nvidia.

    total assumption here but I would assume plugging in 2 usb touchscreens would be like having 2 mice in your system: as long as you don't use both at the same time you should be fine, otherwise they will fight each other for the cursor position. If you have a laptop with a touchpad and a mouse you can see what I'm envisioning, this is what I'm basing my assumption on.

    The problem i see here is what will the PC think of your touchscreen dimension? Obvious answer is that both are configure onto the same axis. That mean if you had your desktop screen longer or wider, you would not be able to operate the longer part of the screen. Both touchscreen will only able to operate the left side of the screen. Hope I explain this in a matter that can be understood.

    This isnt a problem, if you look at the latest version of the touchscreen drivers for lillyput and GAIN screens, there are mapping options for using more than one monitor. So, the drivers are made with this in mind. Very similar to using two wacom tablets on one PC.
