    multi monitors curious setup

    wondering if is it possible to run six xenarc screens from only one vga connection? Explaination, epia m10000, connect the vga splitter(s)
    http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...products_id=38
    so it can run 4 or 6 or more xenarcs or lilliputs? Could this really possible? or am I thinking way too much? (no flame)

    I am pretty sure it is possible, but it doesn't look like it would be the most convenient way either. Then again, I couldn't tell you the most convenient way anyways... but if anything, probably an adapter like that but with 4 or 6 VGA plugs rather than 2. I'm sure you can find one on the internet somewhere.

    It is possible, however splitting the image that many times may give you reduced picture quality.

    I would fit a pci graphics card with dual outputs and use less splitters. This will enable you to have 3 different displays which you can then use splitters to clone. EG 2 headrest screens (connected by splitter to one PCI output) could show dvd while front shows GPS (second PCI output) and second front shows music/frontend etc (connected to built in grpahics).

    i'd run a dual display video card.
    run one to the primary/control display & split the others to everyone else.
    or maybe two splitters and A/B switches on each screen ... hmmmm.

    and use a device similar to what GruvThang mentions above.

    Could this be powered off an Opus, or would it require an invertor?

    A million people can't be wrong, right?

    Well... unless they're all from the red states...
