    Re: VGA Splitter Cable

    Can I ask what dual output cards people are using and what they cost? The only ones I can find in a quick search are nearing £100 which seems a lot...

    I should clarify that we don't need whizzy high-end "gamers" cards, just something to display standard office apps, IE, SMART Notebook and so on.

    Old Radeons are your best bet.

    Now that's more like the price I had in mind! Forgot to mention that they'd need to be low profile though... :-(

    Yep... Media Player Classic here [and Power DVD on those lucky machines that it came with ].

    And yes, making the only active output as the one the projector is on [on dual output machines i.e. laptops] is usually a good bet.

    Dual DVI connectors will not physically fit on a low profile backplate. Just stick a second graphics card in the machine.

    Re: VGA Splitter Cable

    I don't need DVI, just VGA - I'm trying to run a standard monitor on the PCs on IWBs so you can work on the PC without having to turn the projector on.

    CPC - £5.30. I know that these work as I have used them.
