    Multiple screens

    Today I came across this link: Matrox Dualhead2go



    It says:
    With DualHead2Go, home users can use iLife for multimedia projects on one monitor and organize and play iTunes on the second monitor,
    I remember there were some people looking or surching for a multiple monitor solution.
    The product allready exists i think, but Mac support is new to me.

    Neat find! They show it at $169 US, not too bad for a dual VGA screen solution.

    This has come up a few times but Mac support was always pending. Glad to see it is out.

    Previously their information talked about it really just being one desktop (so things that opened in the center actually straddled both monitors) and the minimum resolution (for each monitor) was 1024x768. The FAQ seems to make both items less clear now, so I would be interested to know more.

    Too bad the Triple doesn't work on a Mini

    No, it wont. I am using this exact setup, and it works perfectly (let's you monitor span/clone etc...) you just need to set it up in windows.

    That is technically not possible.

    Only by using 2 graphics cards or a dual/quad head graphics card.

    How can a simple y-adapter send different images to different monitors? It's the same signal sent to the two monitors

    it's absolutly right!!! it is technicallynot possible! if you could do as was suggested, it would be great, but the machine does not know one screen from the other with just a y-cable...

    Dual Head DVI carries 2 channels on one dvi cable. I have this exact setup with my computer (DVI input -> 2 VGA output)
