I have 2 LED pc monitors, and one 52" LCD tv in the living room. All 3 are HDMI.
Is there a way of hooking up all 3 to my pc (2 AMD 5890s in CrossFire mode) where: a) 1 pc monitor is the 'default' one, b) the 2nd pc monitor is an extension of the default one, and c) the 52" is a clone of the default monitor.
Hopefully I didn't confuse anybody and that I described what I want properly.
Thanks for your quick responses!

With Crossfire, I believe you have to have all 3 monitors connected to one card, so you should just need adapters to go from whatever ports that are on the card to HDMI. But yes, it can be done.

i'm not sure you can mix modes, i.e. expanded and cloned. but I've only ever used 2 at a time.

It's something I can try when I get home from work tonight. I have 3 monitors on a 7950.

I've confirmed that you can set it up that way. I was able to choose which monitor I wanted to duplicate. Once you have the adapters needed, you should be able to do it, no problem.
