Below is our situation:
We have a truck rig that we take to customer sites and tradeshows with (2) 42" screens in it. One desktop is connected to these screens with a Matrox Video card that supports dual monitors. We are wanting to get rid of this desktop (stays in rig 24/7, heat/environment issues) so anyone with a laptop can hook up to the monitors and demo our software on both monitors.
I recently purchased a Matrox DualHead2Go hardware appliance last week but it did not work as described or how I wanted. It only allows for you to stretch your screen across the 2 external monitors, not use both of them separately.
I am wanting to use Monitor 1 as my main desktop, and monitor 2 as my extended desktop (I do not care what the laptop is displaying as it will probably be closed). I just want to use it as an extended desktop setup between the 2 external monitors.
Does anyone know any hardware/software solutions that could work for what I am trying to acheive? Upgrading the video card is not an option.
Thanks in advance for any help.
