  1. It can be done. I used to do the same, Play in the main DVI screen to game and surf the web, and the HDTV plugged with a Hdmi cable so my sister would watch movies or Cartoons.
  2. Describe the problem you get and we may be able to help you.
  3. ok but i like to know how you do it

    thanks simon
  4. Well you will have to alt+tab to switch between monitors when gaming. Other than that just hook them up to the computer and in display settings make sure the resolutions and primary/secondary are configured how you want. You won't be able to control the video and game at the same time.
