Splitters duplicate the screen they should warn you about this in their product description. I doubt this is what you want. If you want to be able to use both screens separately you are looking for a multi display adapter / multi stream transporter. Mac should have setting to mirror the display however I make no promises. Here comes the bad news. Currently ...

I can't say 100% yes or no, but there are some things you may be able to investigate to increase your confidence either way.... What is the maximum output resolution on the mini-display port. Graphics cards have seperate 'heads'. If the maximum display resolution on the head is 2x the monitor resolutions you are using, you can probably use a splitter. If ...

Windows 8 itself doesn't support this. Depending on what programs you are trying to run determines if you are able to do this. For example, in Skype's settings, you can choose where you would like Skype to export sound to; assuming you would like use your TV for Skype, you would set your default audio device as your PC speakers and have Skype selected to ...

The GTX 770 specifications page states: 3840x2160 at 30Hz or 4096x2160 at 24Hz supported over HDMI. 4096x2160 (including 3840x2160) at 60Hz supported over Displayport. Support for 4k tiled MST displays requires 326.19 driver or later. So yes, you will need a graphics card with either two DisplayPort connectors or one that has HDMI 2.0 rather than the ...

Windows should automatically detect which output is connected and use that as its primary output when booted. If you are trying with both connected, disconnect the HDMI cable before turning on the PC and see if that helps. If nothing comes out, look on your keyboard for a symbol that may represent a switch to an external display. Often this is Fn+F5. Try ...

This is definitely possible. I had done it previously on my Ubuntu. What you will need to install is qjackctl which is a user interface for controlling JACK (Jack Audio Connection Kit). You will have to look at a few tutorials on how to set up and properly use JACK and then you can use qjackctl to configure which application's output goes to which audio ...

Are you sure that you are extending (and not duplicating) the monitors? By design, the wallpaper which you set is used for both the monitors in Win7 (unless you use some tools) If you are indeed extending, you can use a simple hack and create your wallpaper the size and width of both monitors combined and apply them in 'stretch' mode.

Answering my own question. I believe I have found a solution. It is either a combination of both a/b or just one of them: a. Set the external monitor to Extend Desktop. This is easier said then done because the selection is not available until monitor is plugged in and the driver remembers the setting by monitor. The screen will went blank shortly afterward ...

According to a user on this forum, disabling his (integrated) Realtek High Definition Audio in Device Manager fixed the issue. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/395455-33-sound-stopped-working-hdmi

From displayport.org/faq: Q. Does DisplayPort also support audio? A. Yes, DisplayPort supports multi-channel audio and many advanced audio features. DisplayPort to HDMI adapters also include the ability to support HDMI audio. I wound up on this page however because my DisplayPort audio wasn't working. After searching many sites, I learned that the video ...

First check if your graphics card (hardware) supports HDMI CEC. Then also the drivers must support it. But according to this review, very few cards have CEC support. For PCs without CEC support, there exists various products which add CEC support. They connect between the PC and TV on HDMI cable plus via USB to PC. The software sends CEC commands to adapter ...

Yes, definitely. In addition if your notebooks support HDMI CEC there is a chance to change/switch inputs via software (example) I guess USB devices/channels would be bound to selected MHL-ready input device only (no sharing).

As Dean says, yes you can use two laptops with the one screen and switch between them using the controls on the front panel. This should normally be pretty simple but I don't know that monitor and some can be a pain to switch between inputs. As for the USB. You cannot access the USB via HDMI. The monitor has 4 downstream and 1 upstream socket. The upstream ...

Yes you can connect the two laptops and use them individually one at a time when you change the monitor inputs. You cannot -- as far as I know -- transfer data with an HDMI cable, other than display data. Is it possible to use HDMI...

Probably a displayport daisychain, since with displayport the signal processing chips are on the monitor side which lets you get around the usual "two display limit" imposed by even high-end GPUs (even a GTX 980 has only two RAMDACs). There is no way I'm aware of that would allow him to do this with HDMI. ED: And those adapters / splitters are used for ...

Depending on your laptop's ventilation solution, it might not actually be designed to operate at load with the lid closed. I know that some of the big, bulky Asus laptops require the lid open for full ventilation. An alternative, if closing the lid w/ power options as Jeff advised sends your temps through the roof is to simply use the windows+P shortcut to ...

I was able to fix this by following the instructions here: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3519/t/19622776 Basically uninstall and reinstall your display adapter.

DisplayPort and even DVI implement the VESA MCCS standard for controlling the settings of a connected display device, and can be controlled over the AUX channel on DisplayPort and DDC/CI on DVI. MCCS essentially allows control of the same settings using the monitors on screen display, except without the on screen display. MCCS implements VCP (virtual ...

It's not possible with external monitors, because they are connected through VGA or other port, which doesn't support dimming. The laptop can only turn the screen off by cutting the video output to the VGA port.

I don't think it would work because HDMI doesn't support daisy chaining, and it is the first media type encountered in the chain. The best case I could see would be the first monitor supports mirroring from HDMI to the displayport connector. So you could have a second monitor, but the third and consecutive monitors would just be a clone of the second ...

Active DisplayPort (either normal or mini 1.1 or 1.2) to HDMI converters can go up to 3840x2160@30hz that's 4K@30hz. They use a Parade PS171 chip to achieve this, however it's not exactly plug and play on the Mac, you have to use SwitchResX. I'm told Windows works just fine on the same Mac hardware. (I'm using a 4K 40' Samsung 40HU6500 TV as a display) Also ...

This sounds like a graphics driver issue. I would recommend you try downloading the latest drivers for Linux from the nvidia website. As the default nvidia drivers in Ubuntu are open source by downloading drivers from the nvidia site you will get completely different drivers than the ones you are currently using and it is likely that this will fix the issue ...
