    I want something strange (maybe)

    Hello everyone !

    I have a question:

    In my vehicle I have two (2) VGA screens + 2 (connected in parallel) regular TV screens. I have a NVIDEA video card which has two (2) VGA outputs and one (1) composite output. I know that in NVIDEA settings I can choose one of the following: use 1 of my VGA screens and composite (TV) out same time or use both VGA screens the same time. Doesn't matter, it may be clone mode or some other.

    Now queston: How I can have both VGA screens and my TV out working together the same time. For example: On main (dashboard) VGA I have frontend running, on second VGA (overhead console) I have MAP running, on my headrest's screens I have same picture as on my primary or secondary VGA. NVIDEA doesn't allow me to use all three (3) outputs (VGA1, VGA2, Composite) at the same time. Maybe there is some smart software which will allow me to have all screens running together. If yes, than I will trim my frontend to use all screens.

    Thank you for your help and sorry for my english (French Canadian)

    Composite can only copy the video output, when you have a duel screen setup it cant decide what screen to display so there is a auto off for that output when duel screens is active. Well thats what I found out on my monitor when I tried that a while ago. Maybe someone else can help you.
