    Connecting 2 lilliput touchscreens to one PC. Possible?

    I saw another thread on this subject that states Xenarcs support this. Anyone ever try setting hooking up 2 lilliput screens to a single PC? I was just wondering if you had a VGA splitter like this one and ran USB cables from both screens to the PC would you be able to control the PC from both screens at the same time? I don't have 2 screens to verify this but I am guessing there may be some conflicts. Has someone tried this?

    Dont think there would be a conflict in controlling from both PC's at once, itll just be like having 2 USB mice as far as i know.

    You may want to buy a powered VGA splitter to ensure no signal loss, certainly in an in car environment where theres quite a bit of interference.

    Yeah I am guessing that there may not be a conflict BUT it would be nice to hear from someone who has tried this sucessfully.

    I am in the middle of researching this aswell

    I have two lilliputs (one is in need of repair) but i would like to mount it on the passenger side sun visor.


    I would like them to be able to watch movies and such and even adjust the controls and everything

    On my desktop I had a dual monitor setup. I used two videocards and windows handled the rest. I could see it being done with two monitors but I don't know how the touch screen would work. If you only had one touch scren it would work but two...dunno...gl

    Dang. I guess I will be the first to actually try this when my second lilliput arrives. I'll post my results.

    I have been running two Lilliputs for the last two weeks without any major problems. The only problem i had was when i launched a program, some programs wanted to come up on the primary display, when i wanted it to start on the secondary. Someone here pointed me to a program called 'UltraMon' http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

    That program fixed all my little problems with windows placement, but for a price ... $40.

    I run MediaCar on one monitor while running external apps.. (movies, etc.) on another.

    I'm using a Matrox 450, i hear others video cards will work as long as your OS will handle the dual display.

    I have a dual display motherboard and was thinking of doing this.

    Both touch screens work correctly?

    Both touch screens works great, but every once in awhile, one of the monitors forget the calibration and has to be recal'd, i dont know if its a problem or me playing with other items.

    UltraMon is really a nice program to use with dual monitors, too bad there isnt a free program out there that will do the same. If there is another program, can someone post it here?
