Hi all,

Has anyone ever tried this : 1 triplehead2go connected to 1 dvi connection and 1 lcd screen connected to the other DVI connection.

In this way you would have 4 screens ; 1 wide and 1 extra.
Ofcoarse you would need a fast pc.


Another solution would be 2 pc's with WidevieW and each pc has a DualHead2Go.

Just curious.

Yes no problem. The TH2GO simply acts like one very wide monitor according to Windows. I have a TH2GO on one output plus another LCD on the second output, plus a second video card with another monitor attached to that. 5 screens ; 1 wide and 2 extra.

Hi Ken,

I meant 4 outside views.
Do you have 5 outside views ?

Oh I see, you want to add an outside view screen along with the TH2GO to provide a 4 screen outside picture. Yes by using windowed mode you can undock the forward outside view to the 2 centre screens then a left forward to the left monitor and a forward right to the right monitor. It would work and yes it would affect frame rates depending on your system.

You can also connect 2 TH2GO modules and have 6 screens!

I would think it would work fine but the bezel management feature would not.

Officially Matrox don't support two TH2GO boxes on one PC, but there have been reports of folks successfully doing it. You've got to be quite brave to pay out $300+ to trial something the manufacturer doesn't support!

Result like this:

I use the #4 screen (on the #2 DVI out) for undocked FSM & Radios.
The view is 4x(1280x1024). #4 screen is also 1280x1024 but rotated 90* clockwise.

"Live" its something like this:
