    Hey Dave was it a Matrox P750? cause it had 3 VGA outputs

    If you want three separate images on three displays you need three "heads". Many years ago you could also go FireWire to a device for a Video Viewer additional output.

    Well... if you were using the HDMI input to your TV then maybe you were using a USB->HDMI converter?

    I've never used one myself, but a couple of the other programmers, at the last shop I worked at, used one to drive a third monitor - and it seemed to be successful. Or, anyway, I never heard any grumbling.

    Also. The extended video for the VV usually defaults to the second output on your primary video card. You cannot choose which video out it uses. I am uncertain if video overlay is supported anywhere, anymore. Not on any of my last few computer systems at the very least.

    This is my guess as to what Dave was doing. (assuming it was the same computer/machine as he currently has)

    Only other option would have been a second video card or a triple-head matrox I would think.

    Good luck Dave.

    Sounds right, Warren. But what, then, when I went to the i7's GPU? I'm starting to wonder if I skipped the TV at that point. It was shortly before I moved to Massachusetts (and haven't had a TV connected since).

    Thanks, everyone. I'm starting to think that I went from a triple-head Matrox (750 sounds right) to the dual-head i7 GPU, at which point I disconnected the TV and just worked from my second monitor for video. Weird how I don't remember stuff, anymore. I'd have thought that would have been a memorable "downgrade." And it seems so against my nature that I would've been okay with that.

    So, were you just thinking about it and wondering, or do you have an application for three monitors?

    Are your 2 outputs direct or on videoport (I'm not sure of the official name) whips? We had a ton of dells with that port style and a lot of the whips were Ys that split into 4" cables with a blue vga on one and white dvi on the other, maybe you had one of them? - and seven years ago seems about when we were getting them.
