I have a NVidia GE Force 8500 GT video card in a HP Media Center m8010y computer with a S video, HDMI and a DVI output slot. I have an HD TV attached to the HDMI slot and a monitor to the DVI slot. I have a second monitor which has a DVI cable. Is there any way to split or convert output so I can use both monitors as well as the HDTV? Thank you for any advice you can give me.
Do you want all three screens to show something different (like extended desktops) or have 2 be different and one be a copy?
If you want all three to be different, it is not possible with your video card. It only supports 2 different streams.
However, if you want 2 to be different and a third to be a copy of one of them, you should be able to get a DVI splitter and have 2 of them receive the same signal.
Be warned, your DVI port needs to be Dual Link for the signal to be strong enough to support this. Single Link DVI ports will most likely not work. Check the specs of your card first.
