I'm looking for information on how to do this properly. What I would like to accomplish is having my new GTX 660Ti 3GB drive my two 22" lcd monitors ( witch it does marvelously right now ) and also output video to my Vizio TV. The TV is a model XVT3D554SV. Both of my monitors are using the two DVI connectors. I tried linking my TV with an HDMI cable but I have not gotten any video on the screen nor has windows or the video driver utility ( i forget the name of it ) detected the TV being plugged in. I'm not looking to have output to the TV all the time I would just like to fire up steam's big picture mode and sit back on my couch sometimes. Have i done something wrong or am i trying to do something this card can not handle here?
The surround tech includes a 4th monitor as a "monitor panel" but does not seem to be available if you read the surround tech configuration tool that way.
Also, what is never addressed is if the 3 monitor display setup is only used in gaming and for spreading a single game frame across the 3 screens or if they all can be configured independently just as i do my 2 current panels. In either case the configuration tool does highlight all 4 connections as available for use in up to a 3 panel setup. Yet, MSI's answer explains why my TV gets no signal right now.
Looks like I've got some testing to do. What a mess.
