Multi Screen, clone & extended


I am looking for some help or idea's on how to setup the following displays.

I have 1 desktop computer (Windows XP) with an onboard video card (currently not used) also a nvidia NVS290 duel head card.

What I am looking to do is display 2 separate slide shows projecting onto 2 walls in another room. This is easy enough to do as I can extend my desktop, drag my slideshow to one screen & make it full screen and project…also doing the same with the other.

My problem is if I cant see what I am doing because the computer is in the back room & the displays are in another room. Is it possible to have 4 scenes? 1 projector in one room & a monitor in the back room next to the pc showing the same slide show & then a second projector & 2nd monitor displaying the other.

Or would you suggest another way of doing this?

so 2 sets of clone but extended…hope this makes sense.

  1. vga splitters duplicate the signal into two, so if you add splitters to both outputs it should work. For windows it will still look like extended 2 monitor setup as the duplication happens after the signal leaves the system.
    so route one to the projector and the other to monitor, and repeat

    dvi-D splitter
  2. Ahhh so simple, never even thought about splitting it again, do you think I will loose any quality?

    Thanks I will give this a try :)
  3. well if you use dvi splitters you shouldn't loose any since it's all digital. Not sure about the vga splitters, maybe a little... :/
