View Full Version : TH2GO, Panels and Outside View

09-12-2012, 12:33 AM

I am thinking of using the TH2GO for the following setup - 1 output to a 40" TV for outside view, 2 outputs to 2 x 19" W/S monitors for panels. What I would like to know is how to set this up vs one wide screen view over three monitors. I am using FS9 and Windows XP with an Nvidia 9800GT graphics card.

Many Thanks

I'm not sure you will be able to do this, it's not what the TH2G was designed for. Furthermore, the TH2G really likes to have 3 identical devices connected to its outputs.

Right. The TripleHead2Go prefers 3 identical monitors because it makes the PC think they are one, very wide monitor.

For the setup you want, you want to get a DualHead2Go (http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/dh2go/digital/). Your 2 19" monitors would connect to the DH2G (and the DH2GO to port #1 on the video card). Then your 40" tv could connect to port #2 of the video card (assuming your TV has a DVI input).

This would give you effectively two monitors.
