Y cable = Extended desktop
Jan 27, 2010, 7:21 PM
I've heard that a y cable dvi to dvi + vga will give an extended desktop, not a cloned screen. I'm sceptical myself but I was told that nvidia drivers allowed this to work
The first link is the guys posts, the second link shows some pictures, note the dvi heads, not dms59 but dvi!
Has anyone else pulled this feat of magic off?
