    How to rotate one of the three screens in TH2GO ?

    That's a difficult one...

    I have 4 screens connected to one TH2GO for the MIP. Two 19" bridged with one vga adaptor for CPT and FO connected to port1 of the TH2GO, one 15" for the upper EICAS connected to port2 of the TH2GO, and one 10" for the lower EICAS connected to port3 of the TH2GO. All are in landscape orientation. Everything is ok and all displays do their job.

    BUT the 10" does not fit in the space left between the CDUs in a landscape orientation, and needs to be in portait orientation to fit. I know that Project Majenta can rotate windows and gauges ( I do not have PM) and this could be a solution, but PMDG cannot do that. I also know that if it was connected to VGA port dirrectly to the PC, I could rotate the orientation from the graphic card's software, but it is connected to the TH2GO port togrther with rest of the screens.

    That's a mess !!!!

    Any ideas to solve that matter ?

    Thanks

    Nick

    I would try a PCI video card added to the machine. No 3D going on so a cheap card should do. I do something similar but with a two head AGP card for the Capt And F/O and the PCI card to a touch screen rotated in the same machine.

    I'm currently running a 9800GTX and 9800GT in non-SLI mode. 4 monitors doing different "stuff" 1 of them in portrait orientation. Both cards are PCI-e card but you can use a PCI for the 2D stuff with no issues. If you're using Vista then the two cards must use the same driver. with XP and 7 this is not an issue. With one additional card then you can use your TH2G for three screen wide main viewing.

    Re: How to rotate one of the three screens in TH2GO ?

    Thanks John

    Well I understand your point, and even though I have already installed a bigger monitor for the lower EICAS to avoid rotating the 10" one, I am still trying to find a way to rotate only one of 3 monitors from the TH2GO card.

    As said previous TH2GO sees all 3 monitors as one, and therefore rotates all monitors as one. That is the problem.
