Does anyone have a multiple LCD screen setup?
Since WinXP supports however many displays you want, this makes it possible to run multiple apps for my carputer simultaneously.
My plan was to have a great touchscreen in the dash, molded to look as factory as possible. This would control music and video and the "standard" carputer ideas.
While my carputer will be set up to do a number of things, most of them are one-off, rarely used functions, and I can exit mediaengine and just run them there. However, there are some functions that I can see wanting to run for an extended amount of time.
Mainly, navigation and video game emulation. My setup will also include auxilary rca inputs mounted covertly in the passengers area (my car is a coupe). This lets ANY videogame console connect whenever wanted. (I'm not a big fan of permanently mounting a console into the car... they change often and I dont want to own two of any consoles, one for car and one for dorm.)
So, let me get to the point. Would a setup be possible where theres THREE vga controlled lcd screens in use be possible? One in the center dash, and one in each visor? The passenger visor would be dual wired to not just the computer, but also an rca input for direct interfacing with a video source. I understand that onboard video, as well as some dual vga outputting pci card, should do the trick.
But I've never used multiple screens on windowsxp before. Can the screens be different resolutions? Does a mouse drag across each screen? Can one be full screen while the other use windows? I hope someone has multiple display experience.
