    Multiple Screens

    i've been searching this forum and havent found the specific answer to my question,

    is it possible to run 3 screens (1 lilliput and 2 composite on headrest)
    on an onboard video card? do i just need a splitter? or should i get anothing video card?

    all the controlling would be up front (lilliput) all i want the composite to do is display what the main (lilliput) is showing. all screens with the same image. Thanks!

    i dunno about windows but you'll be stuck with the same resolution as the composite screens. Don't hold me to that though.. like i know in linux you can clone the desktops or have it run like a dual monitor combined desktop or two seperate ones..

    i know in windows though if you use the tvout it'll clone the desktop.

    Depending on your video card, you will be able to have different resolutions on different screens. You can also have different things showing on different screens.

    I know the Radeon card that I have will allow you to put a different resolution on a composite screen, and then drag different pieces of your desktop to that screen. It doesn't work within video players though.

    If you get a video card with TV-out on it (Composite, S-Video, etc.) you would only need a splitter to get the picture onto the composite screens. Check with the video card manufacturer on the multiple resolutions though.

    And all this works on XP, too.
