    Main menu with Video play on 2nd LCD

    Guino,
    This is my setup, main Touchscreen LCD VGA screen up front with s-video screen in back. I have the back screen to play the overlay on full screen mode to be able to see videos on both screens. What I am wondering is there a way to exit out of my main front screen to the main menu (while driving and cops) and still have the back screen running the video playback for my kid. You know like (those who run two screens know what I am taking about) when you browse for a video file and the full screen overlay (rear LCD in my case) still plays the movie. The problem is that RR kills video playback during exit to main menu unlike music playback that still runs in the background. For example, I still see the music interface on the rear screen if i am playing music even though I exit to the main menu on the front screen and I would like it to behave the same way for video playback. Make sense? Or better yet be able to go to GPS and still have video playback on the rear screen and GPS up front!

    Not possible yet I think.... there is a somewhat similar thread in the skin forums titled Split-screen GPS, and we are trying to accomplish something similar for use with 2 VGA screens, there is a user trying to allow simultaneous video+gps I think

    With MATROX you can do that (i don't remember exactly the model, may be G550+). Some time ago i have installed a Matrox in a school and this pc had 2 Monitors. You can choose on what monitor view video or DVD. The managment is very simple with the matrox drivers

    its still not possible with road runner!

    MRFabio, using your idea, video will still stop when the user goes to main menu...

    malkalm: th only way of using this would be independent touchscreen systems, and using the gps software indpendently from rr...

    so no, my initial response still seems to stand...

    It would be possible by making a plugin for RR with a skin that works on a separate screen but you would need to use a separate application for playing the video embedded within the Plugin app.

    yep, but i suppose that is possibly part of what aranthar (or whatever his name is) proposed in the split-gps thread in the skins forum..

    On a related note. Is it possible to run the VGA and composite outputs at the same time on the EPIA M10K? I have only been able to get it to run one or the other. If it is possible, does it run as two seperate screens under XP or does it mirror the same output to both?

    Thanks...

    Bringing this one back.


    Just to ask, is it possible to enable video to continue playing even when you come out of the video screen and go to any of the others, including GPS, audio etc.

    A switch could be added to the ini file (video stay=true/false).

    I now have the video playing full screen on a second screen, but loose it when I come out of the screen. (also have managed to use a second sound card with winamp on one and the video to use the built in one. )

    Can't you just use an external DVD player like WinDVD or Zoom Player?
