ADC and DVI Ports for dual monitor use on a G4
Posted on 2004-09-07
I've just purchased and put in place a video splitter running it from one monitor
port to enable a second monitor remotely situated across the room for viewing of
audio software while recording. I then realized that with the right connector, this
model may accomodate a second video display without requiring a "splitter," as it
has a port I'm not familiar with...(i'm just going by the Apple product description
which indicates my machine has ADC and DVI ports for dual monitor capability).
This is the dual bootable PowerPC G4 1.25 G dual processor desktop machine, touted as the last one in the G4 line that will be capable of booting from either OS 9 or X...
I used to have a tech to consult on this stuff but unfortunately he is no longer
around to advise.... Looking for feedback on if, how, and what cable/configuration
i would need, to enable using this "other" port to simultaneously view the same
video display as my studio's control room monitor...on a separate monitor cabled across
the room to my "studio" viewing area. There is some ghosting using the splitter, on
the "remote" monitor...and if i could take advantaage of a 2nd port instead for a
discrete connection to a 2nd monitor, that seems a better solution. Thanks for
any clarification you can provide here!
