I'd like to run Hulu/Netflix/etc from my Fairly new mid-range Windows 7 box to two TVs. I'd like to eventually run dual monitors as well. What kind of set up would I need to do this?
- HP desktop running Windows 7. 6gigs ram. Current using on-board video.
- 1 HD TV (would like to connect via HDMI
- 1 Standard TV (would need to connect via Component Video/Audio)
- 1 old-school non-DVI LCD
- 1 potential future DVI LCD
I'd likely never be using the computer monitor and one of the TVs at the same time. I'd never need to send video to both TVs at the same time.
Any suggestions for a setup? I see that there are several video cards out there that offer two monitor ports + 1 HDMI port. I'm thinking that'd be the way to go, then run the HDMI port to an HDMI splitter, one going to the HDTV and the other using an HDMI to Component cable to the standard def TV. would that work? Is there a better option?
EDIT: or...is there a magic video card that can do all of that?
To clarify how I'd want to use this: I'd want one main monitor for computer use available at all times. The secondary output could be any one of the 3 devices, but would never have to be simultaneous. So the second display, ideally, could toggle between DVI, HDMI, and Component.
