2x DVI monitors + hdmi tv solution?

I recently built a new computer, and decided 1 monitor wasnt enough. I hijacked my wifes small LCD screen (I need to, uhh, get around to fixing her PC so she can get it back...) to surf the interwebs or play shows while I play games.

I decided 2 screens isnt enough for my media demands, and decided to get a 20ft hdmi cable to attach to my TV. I am having trouble configuring my system to use 3 monitors. I can enable the TV as a primary and the small lcd as secondary, but cant use all three or use my main lcd monitor + tv.

The TV will only be used for movies as an HTPC, so any solution that gets that working would be fine. Ideally I would have my 2 lcd monitors on extended desktop + the tv playing a movie.

I am getting an error when I try and extend to all 3 in both windows and catalyst. Any help would be appreciated.

  1. What graphics card do you have installed? Most Eyefinity capable cards require the use of the DisplayPort output either natively to a DisplayPort input of through the use of an adapter.

  2. I have a Radeon 6950. It has 2 DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 DisplayPort out.

    Current Setup is:
    1650x1050 Main Monitor - DVI
    1280x1024 Side Monitor - DVI
    720p TV - HDMI

    I can have the main and side monitor working or the side monitor and tv working.

    I would be okay with the Main + TV, but would prefer all three if possible.
  3. More than likely, you're going to need to use the displayport output of the card. If neither of your monitors has a displayport input, then you'll need to use an adapter for it.
