Ok so I have been searching and found nothing particularly useful, this is my idea:
I want to play resident evil offline co op but hate the way each screen is so small when split. If I were to use an hdmi splitter I could display the same split screen on two displays, this doesn't solve anything though. I am wondering, would it be possible using hardware or software, running it though a pc, or anything else to have each display zoomed to the opposite portion of the screen so that it is full screen? I know the res would be low because is a small image zoomed in, but it would be better than sitting 1m away from the tv squinting to see what is happening.
I have seen in tech stores consoles hooked up to 4 screens to make one large screen, so perhaps a similar thing could be achieved, with a quarter on each screen?
Also, I don't know if its possible to split an hdmi/component signal into 4 quarters, as in have the cable split to 4 cables and rather than each displaying the same thing, each would display a quarter of the original and could each be hooked up to different displays to get a different portion of the image.
I don't know what would work, just things I have thought about. Any help would be great! :)

I do not think this would be possible unless you know some pretty advanced coding/processing, and I do not think there are currently solutions out there.

I saw this on YouTube:

The guy is obviously stretching a vertical split screen across two displays which looks awful but makes me think there may be a solution.

Hmm, well, it looks like the board they are using would do it, however, it starts at 1700$ and I didn't have time to read about the scaling it does.

Well here is a workaround if you have a 3D TV: activate side by side 3D and use dual play glasses
